Complete and ready to use high quality KS3 Biology Revision lesson. All resources are included in this excellent lesson, save yourself lots of lesson preparation time! Students revise by covering the following (again): * Recall the roles of various scientists. * Revise what vaccines and antibiotics are and what they do. * Describe Edward Jenner’s experiment and its results. * Understand the advantages and disadvantages of vaccines. * Explain what superbugs are. * Recall what DNA is, and what it does. * Explain evolution. * Explain how extinctions can be prevented. STARTER Pupils start the lessons by working together to work out which scientist made which contribution to science. MAIN and MAIN and MAIN.... This lesson is 'chunked' into discrete sections to support learning and create positive behaviour by keeping students interested and focused. There is a very good variety of interesting student activities such as: up and about, gap fills, unscramble, literacy activities, questions, video, discussion, recall, think/pair/share, questions with answers, self-assessment and peer assessment opportunities etc etc. PLENARY Learners self assess and reflect on their progress against the lesson outcomes.

The Hydrological Cycle

The Hydrological Cycle

The water cycle is the never ending movement of water between the ocean, atmosphere and land. Some of the water may be stored in the ocean, on the land or in the atmosphere. This water will be transferred (moved) around the cycle. These worksheets allow students to understand the basic parts of the water cycle using a poem to help order these correctly. They then show their learning through writing a piece which personifies a water droplet trough the cycle.

Classification hierarchy

Classification hierarchy

An engaging lesson presentation (34 slides) and associated worksheets that introduces students to classification using the taxonomic levels and teaches them how to name species using the binomial naming system. The students are told about the domain system, as developed by Carl Woese, but then the lesson focuses on showing them the seven levels that come after this. Students are challenged to understand how the levels differ from each other in terms of sharing characteristics. Time is taken to focus on the five kingdoms and links are made to other topics such as prokaryotic cells to test their previous knowledge. Moving forwards, students are shown how the genus and species are used in the binomial naming system before being given lots of opportunities to assess their understanding through questions. This lesson has been written for GCSE students but is suitable for all age ranges

Scientists Questions on Small Creatures

Scientists Questions on Small Creatures

This presentation is a free sample part of a series designed to be used as a starter or plenary in Science lesson. The series of presentations use a consistent format and cover a range of topics which are part of a KS2/3 science curriculum. In each task students are presented with a science based question and are given 6 potential responses. Of these 6 responses 5 are incorrect and 1 is correct. Pupils are challenged to use knowledge and reasoning to identify the correct response. Each presentation contains 12 tasks with hyperlinks embedded throughout. A paper based slide will allow questions to be set as a homework task or provide meaningful work for a cover lesson
