2019 0610 Cambridge IGCSE Biology Revision Guide

2019 0610 Cambridge IGCSE Biology Revision Guide

This revision guide is 92 pages long. It is composed of closed questions that cover every point of the 2019 0610 Biology syllabus. Pupils complete the revision guide by answering all the questions which gives them a summary of the whole course in one book. This is an essential revision tool and really helps pupils to structure their revision time and should improve their grades. It could even be used during the teaching of content instead of a notebook. This is the version for 2019 exams in June and November. 2020 version to follow. The price of this resource is set high because you can make as many copies as you like for the pupils in your classes. This is considerably cheaper than buying the required number of copies of any revision guide book. Please contact me if you notice any mistakes and I will edit the resource and upload a new version PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVISION GUIDE DOES NOT INCLUDE ANSWERS/SOLUTIONS DOUBLE CHECK YOU ARE DOWNLOADING THE RIGHT YEAR (WHEN YOUR PUPILS WILL SIT THE IGCSEs)

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Water Pollution

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Water Pollution

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the ‘Ecology’ SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience The first task is for pupils to consider the ways in which scientists can measure water pollution. Pupils will need to match the piece of equipment to the description of how it is used. Pupils can then assess their work using the answers provided. The next task is for pupils to think about living indicators of pollution, they can think > pair > share their ideas about what living organisms might give us an idea of the pollution levels in the local environment. After a class discussion the information on the PowerPoint slide will outline some of these examples of bio-indicators. The next task focuses on water bio-indicators, pupils will be in groups and one at a time get a chance to look at a poster of organisms which live in polluted to unpolluted water. Pupils will view the poster and then have to go back to their desks to try and recreate as much of it as they can. After a set period of time (as it could go on forever!) pupils can then assess their work against the poster and see how well they did. The next part of the lesson focuses on bioaccumulation of chemicals in marine organisms, pupils will have the chance to read through an article and will need to use the information in the article to come up with their own definition of ‘bioaccumulation’. Once pupils have completed this task you can reveal the definition for bioaccumulation and a diagram to simply depict how this process occurs in marine environments. The last part of the lesson looks at eutrophication, pupils will firstly watch a video about this process and will need to answer questions whilst watching. Once this is complete they can mark their work using the answers provided. Finally pupils will be given a blank cartoon strip, for which they will need to select the correct captions to go with the correct stage in the process of eutrophication as well as draw a diagram to depict this stage. The plenary task for pupils is for them to pretend they work for an environmental charity, they need to tweet a message to raise awareness abut the effect water pollutants can have on local biodiversity. All resources are included at the end of the presentation. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Global warming & the impact of change

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the ‘Ecology’ SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience The first task is for pupils to think > pair > share the factors which may cause a contribution of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere. Pupils can create a mind map in their books and then discuss their ideas as a table and then as a class. The next PowerPoint slide reveals some of the main factors which contribute to an increase in carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere, pupils can check their work against these answers. For the next task pupils will be required to watch a video about the greenhouse effect and answer questions in their books, this task can be self-assessed using the answers provided once complete. Using this information pupils will then be asked to fill in the blanks on a diagram depicting the greenhouse effect, pupils will be given captions to write into the correct boxes on their worksheet. This can be self-assessed once it has been completed. Next pupils will be given a set of data on the mean world temperature change from 1960 to present day, students will be required to plot the data on a graph, describe the pattern of the graph and explain why the graph may be showing this pattern. The next part of the lesson focuses on global warming, students will firstly be given a set of questions which they will need to answer whilst watching a video. This work can then be self-assessed using the answers provided. For the very last task pupils will be given a card of information each detailing an environmental factor and it’s impact on living organisms. Pupils will need to wander around the room and share information with each other to complete their table of environmental factors. The plenary task is for pupils to identify what the questions might be for a set of answers provided on the PowerPoint presentation. All resources are included at the end of the presentation.

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the ‘Ecology’ SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience The first part of the lesson focuses on outlining the importance of carbon within the living world, where we might find it in our bodies and the world around us. The first task pupils will be asked to complete is a mind map of the processes they think will add or remove carbon dioxide from our atmosphere. Pupils can discuss in pairs and once complete the answers can be revealed for pupils to assess their work. The next task is for pupils to watch a video about greenhouse gases, there are a set of questions pupils will be given which they need to answer whilst watching the video. Once this task is complete pupils can assess their work using the answers provided. The next task is a fill-in-the-blanks task, pupils are given a paragraph about the role of carbohydrates in animals and plants, they need to complete this using the key words provided. Once completed pupils can assess their work using the answers provided. Pupils will then watch a video about the carbon cycle which details the process involved, once the students have watched the video they will be given a worksheet which they need to complete using the captions provided on the PowerPoint slide. Lower ability students may want to complete this as a group & could perhaps complete whilst the video is playing to assist them. Once they have completed the task pupils can self-assess their work using the answers provided. The next task may be better suited to higher ability pupils, a set of cards images and captions are provided per pupil and they need to use this to construct their own carbon cycle in their books. Higher ability pupils may want to test their knowledge and turn to their back page to complete this without looking at their previous work The last task is for pupils to consider the future and how we may be able to implement strategies to help reduce our carbon emissions in order to combat global warming. Pupils are to discuss possible methods/strategies we could use and mind map their ideas in their books. The plenary task is for pupils to turn to the back of their books and write down a description of as many processes which contribute to the carbon cycle as possible. All resources are included at the end of the presentation. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)
