I produced this for an AQA Applied science GCSE group when on my PGCE but it could also be useful for biology GCSE. I normally have PowerPoint's accompanying my revision packs but could not find the one for this lesson, nor could I find the word loop. However, the lesson plan and revision pack may come in handy.
This is for a 100 minute lesson, but there are two tasks which could be split over two 50 min lessons.
The Timeline Poster is one activity and the Darwin text based activity is the second activity.
The text may be too textual for low ability or low reading age students, my low reading age group had an LSA and they were ACE!
