Under The Sea - Animal Classification

Animal Classification -Groups of Sea Animals This is a great whole class teaching activity while children work in groups to identify different groups of sea animals. Each group is given a set of flash cards, key headings and features to sort out into vertebrates, invertebrates, fish, mammals, reptiles, crustaceans and molluscs while cooperatively making decisions and discussing the different possibilities. You can provide for each group an A3 sheet of paper and glue sticks to create a group poster. They can record their answers in a chart and in a table (worksheets)

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology – ClassificationQuick View

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology – Classification

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Ecology' SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience This lesson begins with pupils being given a card sort of organisms, they will need to look at the pictures and try and decide how they would sort these organisms into groups, in other words how would they classify the organisms. Pupils will then be introduced to Linnaeus’ classification system and how this now influences the way we classify organisms, as well as explaining how modern technology can help us to group organisms. Pupils will then watch a video on classification, they will asked to think about, and write notes, on why classification is such an important process that scientists use. Now pupils are being introduced to the order of the classification system, pupils will be shown the order and then pupils will need to come up with their own mnemonic to help them remember this order. Pupils will then be introduced to the binomial naming system and the importance of this system, which they should be able to recount. The next activity involves pupils walking around the room, reading posters and they will need to use this information to complete a worksheet answering questions about the different kingdoms of the classification system. Once this is complete pupils can self or peer assess their work using the answers provided within the PowerPoint presentation Pupils will then complete an exam-style question on the topic of classification. This can then be self-assessed using the mark scheme provided. The plenary is for pupils to complete an exit card to demonstrate what they have learnt during the lesson, this can be handed in at the end of the lesson to the teacher to check student understanding. 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 :)

Classification and taxonomy AS levelQuick View

Classification and taxonomy AS level

A powerpoint for AQA AS level unit 4 Genetic information, variation and relationships between organisms (3.4.5 Species and taxonomy). Starter is getting students to think about how we classify organisms by getting them to sort cards into categories. No wrong answers! Gives an explanation on phylogenetics, taxonomy and hierarchy. There is a mini question sheet with easier questions to get the students used to the content before moving onto exam questions. Answers are on the powerpoint. There are also exam questions based on the lesson including definitions and using knowledge of taxonomic ranks to fill in tables and diagrams. Exam question worksheet comes with answers at the bottom.

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology – New systems of classification

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Ecology' SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience This lesson begins with an introduction to evolutionary trees, pupils will be shown how to interpret evolutionary trees and understand the common ancestry between species of organisms. Pupils will then be shown the difference between convergent and divergent evolution. The next part of the lesson will focus on the work of Woese et al, pupils will watch a video and try to answer questions about Woese and his work, this can be assessed using the answers which can be revealed once the video has been watched. Pupils can then watch a second video, using this video they will then try to complete profile cards for three domains as proposed by Woese – archaea, bacteria and eukaryotes. Pupils can again check their work against the answers provided in the PowerPoint slide. Pupils will then be given some information on Woese and his work, students will need to use this information along with what they have learnt so far in the lesson to complete a newspaper article on his work and infamous discovery. The next part of the lesson looks again at evolutionary trees, pupils are shown how to use an evolutionary tree to compare the relationships between organisms. Pupils will then need to complete an exam-style question on evolutionary trees, which can be self-assessed using the mark scheme provided. The plenary task is for pupils to come up with questions for a set of answers. 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 :)

AQA new specification-Classification-B15.9

Classification lesson created in accordance to the NEW AQA Specification (9-1). Designed for higher ability class, although content can be adjusted to suit any ability. Includes: embedded videos and timers, slide animations, practice questions with answers on slides, worksheet and an interactive quiz. NB: If you are unable to play videos a URL link can be found in the slide notes. AQA spec link: 4.6.4 Relevant chapter: B15 Genetics and evolution. AQA Biology Third edition textbook-Page 250-251 Students are required to know the following; Traditionally living things have been classified into groups depending on their structure and characteristics in a system developed by Carl Linnaeus. Linnaeus classified living things into kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus and species. Organisms are named by the binomial system of genus and species. Students should be able to use information given to show understanding of the Linnaean system. Students should be able to describe the impact of developments in biology on classification systems.
