The menstrual cycle - activities

You’re downloading this resource from benji08


A PowerPoint and 3 different activities relating to the menstrual cycle.

I used these over 2 lessons:

- In the first lesson, I printed off slides from the PowerPoint and pinned them up around the room. Students used this info to label the menstrual cycle diagram on the worksheet.

- In the second lesson, I used the quiz as a starter and students sorted the cards into 3 columns for FSH, LH and oestrogen, to revise the function of each hormone.

Designed for AQA GCSE Science A / GCSE Biology.

    Hi there,

    I teach EAL and I'm looking to use this as support for those taking GCSE Bio. Could anyone tell me the answers to the card task? Please :)

    Have a lesson observation, this is an excellent basis for my lesson. the TedEd video "how-to-make-a-baby-in-a-lab" is really useful with this lesson.
