I am a secondary school & A-level Science teacher, specialising in Biology. I am also an experienced AQA GCSE Biology Examiner. My resources contain a mix of Biology, Chemistry and Physics lessons aimed at meeting specification points for the new AQA Trilogy GCSE course and KS3 Activate course. All of my lessons include at least one opportunity for self-assessment, a range of activities to suit students of all abilities, a set of differentiated starter questions and a plenary.

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Bioenergetics' SoW.

Firstly pupils are asked to consider why organisms may not be able to continuously carry out aerobic respiration. They can discuss in pairs and then as a class and be introduced to the idea of anaerobic respiration. They will fill then complete a fill-in-the-blank task to sum up this process.

Pupils will then watch a video where they will answer questions about anaerobic respiration, their answers can be checked against the mark scheme provided.

Now pupils are introduced to the idea of oxygen debt, they are given an information card in pairs (for lower ability classes you may want to tag read this as a class) and then pupils will need to answer questions about this information. They can talk about in partners, once finished they can self or peer assess their work.

Finally the different products of anaerobic respiration that are made in different organisms are highlighted, it is touched upon in the video but this is clear slide to show anaerobic respiration in plants, bacteria and yeast.

Pupils will complete some exam-style questions to assess their knowledge of this topic, can be answered in the back of their books to fully test them! Pupils can then mark their own work using the mark scheme provided.

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 :)
