This is a 'game' to be used when introducing abortion. The week chart needs to be enlarged to A3 ( and ideally laminated) and placed in a long line on the floor/tables. The stages of development need to be cut up and given out to students. They then have to guess when each thing happens. You can then add the UK abortion limit and religious views as needed.
This presentation explores the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system. Using numbers to guide both teacher and student throughout the presentation, these then correspond with an activity sheet also included in this resource.
The presentation covers:
* Functions of the nervous system (with reference to how we communicate)
*Divisions - central nervous system and peripheral nervous system
* Lobes test - in the activity presentation, you will find some ideas on how to deliver/demonstrate to students what each lobe does, in an activity based method
* The meninges
* Head injuries
* Neurone and neurotransmitters (very brief outline)
This power point presentation outlines and explains the concept of homeostasis. Examples of feedback loops are explained - positive and negative. The internal environment of the human body is explored, as well as the impact of external factors including exercise. Breathing rate, heart rate, temperature and blood glucose homeostatic mechanisms are explored. References made to energy metabolism are also included. This resource could be easily adapted to suit the learning level. Some interactivity is included, along with links to external video sites.
