Looking at the Natures of God (omnipotent etc) through Bruce almighty. It also looks at the theme of human selfishness and freewill. You will need a copy of Bruce almighty to use this resource. The full film is available on you tube. Lots of fun worksheets to engage the pupils. The idea inst to watch all of the film, but throughout the power points are examples of which bit in the film to show

Introduce students to natural and man-made wood with this double-sided jumbo sized A3 worksheet. Wood and its application. Hardwoods and Softwoods explained. Crosswords Engineered woods (Plywood, Chipboard and MDF). Questions on key differences between wood types, properties, veneers, environmental impact etc. This worksheet is designed in landscape format and can be printed in A4 but A3 is strongly recommended for the maximum learning experience of the student.
KS3 Activate 2 module ‘Adaptation and Inheritance’ Full lesson ready to use straight ‘out of the box’.

An engaging PowerPoint learning about. It includes a stimulating starter, lesson objectives, key scientific skills, vocabulary, literacy, opportunity for class discussion and a plenary.
This engaging and informative lesson enables students to make sustained and insightful interpretations of the theme of duality within Stevenson’s ‘Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.’ In particular, students explore the differences in personality between Jekyll and Hyde, and infer Stevenson’s key messages about the duality of human nature. The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through: - Defining and understanding the belief in the duality of human nature across history; - Reading and comprehending Jekyll's view of the duality of human nature in the final chapter; - Comparing and contrasting the personalities of Jekyll and Hyde; - Retelling the same event from the viewpoint of both Jekyll and Hyde; - Analysing Stevenson's key message about the duality of the mind; - Peer assessing each other's learning attempts. Included is: - Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; - Extract from the final chapter; - Jekyll's duality worksheet (and answer sheet for teachers); - Analysis template with success criteria for creating well-structured responses; - Comprehensive lesson plan. There are also opportunities for group learning, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. These resources were originally taught to GCSE students, but with subtle adaptations they have also been used with KS3 and A Level Students.

x3 A3 revision sheets for the AQA unit - Natural Hazards (9-1) These sheets can be used for any AQA course but I created them following the Oxford Textbook.
This lesson is designed for the KS3 Year 8 Science course, specifically the B2 1.3 unit on Adaptation & Inheritance. For more lessons designed for KS3 and KS4 please visit my shop at: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience. The lesson begins with a ‘Think > Pair > Share’ activity which requires students to consider the definition for the term ‘evolution’. After students have had some time to talk about this, their ideas can be shared with the class and the answer can be revealed for students to check and correct their work. This leads into an introduction to the fossil record as means of evidence for evolution, students will then need watch a video on the formation of fossils - during which they will answer a set of questions. Students can now mark and assess their work using the mark scheme provided. Students will now be introduced to the idea of ‘Natural Selection’, they will be told the mechanism by which this works by using the example of girraffes with longer and shorter necks. Students will now be asked to complete a cartoon strip to summarise this process, once this task has been completed students will be able to mark and assess their work using the answers provided in the PowerPoint presentation. The last part of the lesson students will be shown a video on examples of natural selection in action. Whilst watching this video, students will need to answer a set of questions, once this has been completed students can self-assess their work using the answers provided. The plenary task requires students to write three quiz questions to test their peers on what they have learned this lesson. 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 :)
This 21 slide ppt covers the new AQA AS biology syllabus for genetic diversity and natural selection. it covers alleles, genetic bottlenecks, founder effect, natural selection, behavioural, anatomical and physiological adaptations, good colourful examples, directional and stabilising selection, investigating selection, asceptic technique and antibiotic resistance practical (using antibiotic discs). Thank you for looking at my resource, if you like it pls leave feedback.
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1A: In this second lesson in the section we look at the natural causes of climate change. We start with a quick knowledge check on climate change with a quiz. We then look at orbital changes, sunspot activity and volcanic eruptions as mechanisms for causing climate change. The pupils will have a worksheet to fill in and there are information sheets for each mechanism. This could be done as a round the room activity or group work, it’s up to you. We use Tambora as an example of volcanic activity affecting climate. We finish with GCSE-style question with some suggested content if they need help. In a nutshell lesson includes: Climate change quiz starter Worksheet activity on mechanisms for natural climate change Video clips where appropriate GCSE-style question with guidance on suggested content. Hope this saves you some valuable planning time. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/markthegeographer

This is a whole unit of work on Natural Resources aimed at KS3
A fully-resourced lesson which is designed for GCSE students and includes an informative lesson presentation (29 slides) and question worksheets. This lesson explores the theory of evolution by natural selection. The lesson begins with a fun challenge which gets students to come up with the name Charles Darwin but also the phrase “survival of the fittest”. The main focus of the next part of the lesson is to take students through this tag line, adding detail and keywords which they will be able to use in their answers later in the lessons. Students are continually encouraged to discuss key questions on this topic, such as “are all mutations harmful”? They will recognise how these random changes in DNA can lead to advantageous phenotypes and how this can convey a survival edge to organisms. Moving forwards, students are guided through the well-known example of the peppered moths in order to show them to how to use variation, advantage, survival, reproduction and offspring in their answers on this topic. The remainder of the lesson involves students testing their new-found knowledge as they have to apply it to explain how resistance in bacteria and longer necks in giraffes have evolved. Progress checks are written into this lesson at regular intervals so that students can constantly assess their understanding and any misconceptions can be immediately addressed.
covering various aspects of natural selection including the peppered moth (with activity) and galapagos finches
**Resources for Component 2, Theme 3 ‘A’ for the Eduqas Religious Studies A-Level, covering: ** A - the nature of religious experience, with visions/conversion/mysticism/prayer Includes lessons and handouts for the 4 varieties of religious experience, as well as activities which are obvious from the handouts. Should lead to an understanding of the nature of religious experience, and ability to example all of them in detail.
This resource covers Natural Moral Law including: - The origins of Natural Law - Aquinas’ theory of Natural Moral Law - The Doctrine of Double Effect - The strengths and weaknesses of Natural Law I would recommend this revision map to be printed and enlarged to A3 paper for maximum benefit.
Lesson aimed at low ability GCSE but can be easily differentiated. Focuses on the theme 'Nature vs Nurture' in the text.
Worksheet I have made using giraffes to help pupils understand natural selection better. To be used in conjunction with textbooks. Credit to Longman's worksheet where I adapted it from.
I played this game as part of a CPD and loved it and have used it several times with both KS3 and KS4 recreating my own story. Good way to start off any lesson on adaptation or natural selection/evolution. I suggest you make sure kids select their sticky-dog feature using a pen not pencil as they try to cheat!
