I am a secondary school & A-level Science teacher, specialising in Biology. I am also an experienced AQA GCSE Biology Examiner. My resources contain a mix of Biology, Chemistry and Physics lessons aimed at meeting specification points for the new AQA Trilogy GCSE course and KS3 Activate course. All of my lessons include at least one opportunity for self-assessment, a range of activities to suit students of all abilities, a set of differentiated starter questions and a plenary.

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Organisation' SoW.

This lesson begins by identifying what metabolic rate is and then asking pupils to think about what important metabolic reactions take place within organisms. Pupils can discuss and try and come up with a brain storm in their books.

Pupils then learn about the role of the liver by watching a video and answering questions at the same time, once pupils have finished completing this task they can assess their work using the answers provided on the PowerPoint slide.

Next, pupils need to specifically learn about the role of the liver in clearing lactic acid from the body. They will be given an information card and will need to answer some questions using this information, once finished they can mark or peer assess their work.

The final activity is an exam-style question about glycogen in the liver, pupils can answer this question in silence at the back of their books (for higher abilities this would be most suitable) or for lower abilities you may allow them to discuss and answer in pairs. Once completed they can mark their worn work.

The plenary activity is a list of answers, pupils need to come up with the questions to which these words are the answers.

All resources are included at the end of the presentation.
