GCSE Bio- Reproduction (Homeostasis) in 30 mins

GCSE Bio- Reproduction (Homeostasis) in 30 mins

This revision lesson covers hormones in reproduction, contraception and hormones to treat infertility from homeostasis. This lesson is designed to be a quick recall lesson that lasts approx 30 mins. The activities range from spot the mistakes in IVF to guess the type of contraception. This allows students to recap the key areas and address any misconceptions they might have in the lead up to their exams. The lesson also includes low demand, standard demand and high demand questions. There is a worksheet for the students to use as they follow the lesson and they can use it as a revision resource afterwards (I recommend to print it in A3). This is found towards the end of the ppt. This lesson is one of many in a series of 30 min revision lessons so do have a look at my other resources.
