NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - DNA & Protein Synthesis
This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Inheritance, variation and evolution' SoW.

For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop:

The lesson begins with a recap on the relative sizes of structures found within the cell, starting with nucleotides & building up to nucleus and then cell.

The next task requires pupils to answer questions about the human genome whilst watching a video. This work can then be self-assessed using the mark scheme provided in the PowerPoint presentation.

The next part of the lesson shows students the structure of a DNA nucleotides and of the overall double-helix structure of DNA.

Pupils will then watch a video on the process of protein synthesis, pupils will need to answer questions whilst watching this video. Pupils can then self-assess their work using the mark scheme provided.

The final activity is for pupils to complete an exam-style question, pupils then either self-assess or peer-assess their work using the mark scheme provided.

The plenary task is for pupils to write a list of key words from the lesson today.

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 :)
