GCSE Biology: Photosynthesis Worksheet PackQuick View

GCSE Biology: Photosynthesis Worksheet Pack

A collection of visually appealing worksheets focusing on how the leaf is suited to photosynthesis and also limiting factors of photosynthesis. A visually appealing set of two worksheets/placemats for GCSE students on firstly, the structure of the leaf and how it is adapted for photosynthesis, and secondly, the process of photosynthesis and limiting factors. Perfect for use when both teaching the topic area and also for revision. Each worksheet should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. As a suggestion the resource could be laminated and completed by students using OHP pens and then cleaned off for future use with other pupils. These sheets could even be used as a short progress test with students too. An answer sheet is included for both worksheets for teachers.

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - PhotosynthesisQuick View

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Photosynthesis

This is a lesson designed to meet specification points for the new AQA Trilogy GCSE Biology 'Bioenergetics' scheme of work. The lesson begins by pupils being introduced to the term 'photosynthesis' and then being asked to consider the raw materials that plants need in order for photosynthesis to occur. Pupils are then given three minutes to write down everything they have learnt about photosynthesis so far, with an extension task to write the word equation for the reaction. In the next part of the lesson pupils are introduced to the word equations and are challenged to write a balanced symbol equation for this reaction. Mid-lesson plenary involves a set of exam-questions (total marks = 9 marks) which they can complete in silence and then peer or self-assess using the mark scheme provided. Pupils are then introduced to the concept of endothermic and exothermic reactions, they are given the definition for an endothermic reaction and are then asked to 'think, pair, share' with a partner about what an exothermic reaction might be and whether photosynthesis is endothermic or exothermic. After 5 minutes, pupils are given the answers and they can mark their work. The final activity is for pupils to watch a video on the scientific investigation conducted by Van Helmont, pupils watch the video and answer questions on a worksheet which can then be self or peer-assessed using red pens. Pupils can choose their plenary activity - either writing quiz questions on the topic of the lesson or summarising what they learnt by writing a twitter message along with #keywords. All resources are included in the PowerPoint presentation, thank you for purchasing :)

Photosynthesis: These photosynthesis cootie catchers are a great way for students to have fun while learning about Photosynthesis, and build their vocabulary. These cootie catchers contain the following Photosynthesis vocabulary terms: ♦ Photosynthesis, Carbon dioxide, Chlorophyll, Chloroplast, Oxygen, Stomata, Water, and Glucose These Photosynthesis cootie catchers come in color and black & white, and also come with a version where students can add their own definitions. All of this totals 4 pages which has students identifying vocabulary terms about Photosynthesis (with pictures) based from the definition. ***** Do a search for my other Cootie Catchers in the folllowing topics: ***** Space Science: ♦ Comets, Meteors, & Asteroids ♦ Constellations ♦ Eclipses ♦ Life Cycles of Stars ♦ Moon Phases ♦ Planets ♦ Solar System and Space ♦ Clouds ♦ Earthquakes & Plate Tectonics ♦ Erosion ♦ Fossils ♦ Layers of the Atmosphere ♦ Layers of the Earth ♦ Landforms ♦ Natural Disasters ♦ Natural Resources ♦ Rock Cycle ♦ Rocks and Minerals ♦ Seasons ♦ Soil ♦ Volcanoes ♦ Water Cycle ♦ Weather Life Science: ♦ Animal Adaptations ♦ Biomes ♦ Cell Organelles ♦ Classification and Taxonomy ♦ Ecosystems ♦ Evolution ♦ Food Web ♦ Habitats ♦ Human Body ♦ Life Cycles ♦ Photosynthesis ♦ Plants ♦ Six Kingdoms of Life Physical Science: ♦ Atomic Structure ♦ Circuits ♦ Element Compound and Mixture ♦ Force and Motion ♦ Forms of Energy ♦ Light Energy ♦ Magnets ♦ Reflection and Refraction ♦ Scientific Method ♦ Simple Machines ♦ Sound Energy ♦ States of Matter ♦ Thermal Energy ♦ Waves

Four 60 minute lessons of content to guide pupils to understand the process of photosynthesis, how a leaf is adapted to carry out photosynthesis and the interaction of limiting factors including the application of the inverse square law. This is a guided set of lessons and therefore can be taught by non-specialists. Although closely following the Edexcel GCSE exam specification, these lessons are also appropriate for KS3 pupils in preparation for their GCSE Science content (both triple and combined scientists). The design of these lessons is based around the following specification points from the Edexcel Combined Science (Biology) course: B6.1 Describe photosynthetic organisms as the main producers of food and therefore biomass B6.2 Describe photosynthesis in plants and algae as an endothermic reaction that uses light energy to react carbon dioxide and water to produce glucose and oxygen B6.3 Explain the effect of temperature, light intensity and carbon dioxide concentration as limiting factors on the rate of photosynthesis B6.4 (Higher) Explain the interactions of temperature, light intensity and carbon dioxide concentration in limiting the rate of photosynthesis B6.6 (Higher) Explain how the rate of photosynthesis is directly proportional to light intensity and inversely proportional to the distance from a light source, including the use of the inverse square law calculation B6.9 …including the structure and function of the stomata

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - The rate of photosynthesis (liming factors)Quick View

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - The rate of photosynthesis (liming factors)

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Combined Science:Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Bioenergetics' 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 The lesson begins by students thinking about the raw materials needed for plants to photosynthesise and which factors might limit the rate. The three factors which students will need to learn about are then revealed - carbon dioxide, light intensity and temperature. Three limiting factor graphs are then shown for each of these factors and students need to have a go at explaining what the graphs are showing, as a class discussion. Pupils will then need to complete a fill-in-the-blank task and self- their assess their work using the answers provided. Next pupils are shown a green leaf and a variegated leaf and are asked to think>pair>share which leaf they believe will have a higher rate of photosynthesis, and why. This then leads to pupils learning that less chlorophyll means less photosynthesis will take place, which could lead to stunted growth. The next part of the lesson focuses on pupils being able to use practical equipment to set up an investigation which measure the effect of light intensity on rate of photosynthesis. Pupils will firstly be given some images of equipment they could use and are asked to come up with a potential method for this investigation. After this pupils are then shown a video where they have to answers questions about the variables in this investigation and finally they are given a set of results to plot data and analyse it. The plenary is a silent 5 task where pupils need to answer questions about what they learnt this lesson on their own in their books. All resources are included either at the end of the presentation or as a separate file.
