Defence against disease OCR A Level Tarsia

Defence against disease OCR A Level Tarsia

Written to match OCR A level Biol Year 1 (2015 onwards) section on defence against disease. You need to download the Tarsia software (free) but these puzzles really challenge the students’ understanding of the knowledge section of the spec. THe words around the outside of the puzzle are either ways of discovering/developing new medicines or different types of immunity. This typically takes students between 20 and 40 minutes to complete - group work and discussion works well

Body blank to write on

Body blank to write on

Print as 2 to 1 page to get 2xA5 copies or print as is which will give you 2xA4 copies. You can change the heading to suit any purpose. With this heading I get students to draw onto the body all the ways they can think off for pathogens to enter the body. Inevitably some will draw penises (of varying sizes) onto their body. Rather than making a big deal of it, embrace it! Responses like, “Excellent I can see that your body is male. How do pathogens enter a penis?” This usually stumps those trying to shock their female teachers. It can also be a lead into a useful conversation about sexually transmitted infections STI’s.

Fungi Resources for Primary Schools

Fungi Resources for Primary Schools

The British Mycological Society run their National event ‘UK Fungus day’ every year at the start of National Biology week in October. Please find lots of fun fungi activities that you can do with pupils to mark the event or some other time (we don’t mind when fungi are promoted!)

Quiz questions project

Quiz questions project

This resource is best used for students aged 11-18 as it is a generic template and strategy based on the value of questions and questioning. It is useful due to this. The aim is to prepare a quiz based presentation to share with others or use as a revision resource. The objectives to be fulfilled by the end of this project are; a development in the ability to devise, answer and evaluate key questions. Differentiation is by outcome or teacher selection so, for example, only the most able students are given the trickier tasks or given the role of leadership. Questions are a great learning tool, they have the potential to boost thinking, independent learning, retention, teamwork, collaboration and communication like no other strategy. Teachtoday July 2018

Antibiotics

Antibiotics

An engaging lesson presentation and associated worksheet that looks at the use of antibiotics to treat bacterial infections and the raises the issue of the potential over-use of these substances. The lesson begins by getting the students to recognise the difference between three key terms that begin with anti (antibiotics, antivirals, antiseptics). Students will be introduced to the idea that antibiotics are specific to a small range of bacteria and therefore the correct one has to be selected before being prescribed. Moving forwards, students will meet the idea of the zone of inhibition and will understand how the size of this zone can be used as an indicator to the effectiveness of the treatment. Students are shown how to calculate the size of the zone and then are tested on their ability to apply this mathemetical knowledge. Finally, time is taken to look at the links to the topic of natural selection to explain how some bacteria are resistant to certain antibiotics. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but could be used as an introduction with A-level Biology students who are about to begin the topic of immunity.

Prokaryotic cells

Prokaryotic cells

A lesson presentation (and associated worksheets) that looks at the features of prokaryotic cells and ensures that students are aware of the main differences between these cells and their eukaryotic counterparts. The lesson begins by reminding students of the definition of an eukaryotic cell and then challenges them to recognise what is the main difference in a prokaryotic cell. The similarities between the cells are also considered, mainly through the use of the Venn diagram as shown in the picture. Moving forwards, the extra features that are found in some bacterial cells are introduced to the student (through the use of a competition format). There is a big emphasis on key terminology throughout the lesson so that students are not confused when these technical terms are used in assessment questions. This lesson has been written for GCSE students but could be used with A-level Biology students who are recapping on the topic of cells.

The lesson has the following features embedded: Lesson has Bloom’s Taxonomy embedded throughout which are also graded for differentiation. Stretch and challenge tasks throughout (including Grade 8-9+ questions and extended writing) AfL (3 progress checks embedded) Differentiation is strong as has been noted in formal school observations for the last 2 years of teaching AQA. Narrative of lesson structure is clear and focused as well as engaging. Pre-starter prepared. The lesson is geared with top-down approach pedagogy and provide inclusive differentiation for low attaining and medium attaining pupils as well. The lesson should be ‘tweaked’ to meet the needs of your own pupils.

Diseases caused by protists - malaria lesson

Diseases caused by protists - malaria lesson

Written for AQA Trilogy GCSE. Focuses on the transmission of malaria. Slide 2 has a video link that makes a good starter for class discussion about malaria and death in the under 5’s. Slide 3 is a learning framework for the lesson. Slide 4 could be printed out for each student so that they have the necessary vocabulary and spellings needed for this lesson. Can then be used as the basis of a mind map during the lesson making links between the words. Slide 5 shows a simplified life cycle of the disease and has a video link to an animation to show this . The animation contains the names of the life cycle stages of the protist which are not needed at GCSE any more. If you think this may confuse your class, do not use the link. However I have found that most students are quite happy to know that there are words they don’t need to remember. Slides 6-7 are questions about malaria. Slides 8-9 are general questions about the diseases covered in this and previous lessons.

Diseases caused by fungi lesson

Diseases caused by fungi lesson

Written for AQA Trilogy GCSE. Focuses on athletes foot and rose black spot. Although the AQA specification only mentions rose black spot. ( I felt that it was important to know that fungal diseases occurred in humans as well as plants.) Slide 2 is a learning framework for the lesson. Slides 3-6 provide visual aid whilst you explain about the variety of fungal structures. Slide 7 gives extra information about rose black spot as I didn’t feel that the text book we use gave enough detail. Slide 8 answer all questions for each disease. (Red questions aimed at LAPS, green questions aimed at MAPS and purple at HAPS.) Slide 9 is an extra task that could be done as a homework.

Diseases caused by bacteria lesson

Written for AQA Trilogy GCSE. Focuses on salmonella - causing food poisoning and gonorrhoea - a sexually transmitted disease. Slide 2 is a learning framework for the lesson. Slide 3 focuses on how bacteria replicate by binary fission. Slide 4 provides visual aid whilst you explain about the variety of bacterial structures. You then need an up to date text book which will provide the information needed to answer questions on slide 5. Answer all questions for both diseases. (Red questions aimed at LAPS, green questions aimed at MAPS and purple at HAPS.) Extra task could be set as a homework - Slide 6 sets a task to design an on-line leaflet giving advice on one of the diseases. Slides 7 & 8 show examples of what is currently available on-line, not very inspiring. Work sheet 2xA5 on one A4 sheet. Use two colours of highlighter pen, one for each disease. Use as a plenary or as a starter for the next lesson to assess understanding.
