Specialised Cells

Specialised Cells

This is an introductory lesson into specialised cells. Pupils have the task of identifying the roles of different individuals and then the task of identifying the role of 8 different specialised cells. They have to join the dots to create a diagram for each cell and correctly match the definition to each cell. This resource pack includes differentiated worksheets and the Moo or False plenary. Pupils love this activity!

Plant cells and the Transpiration Stream

Plant cells and the Transpiration Stream

A fun and engaging lesson presentation (37 slides) that looks at the features of the cells of the leaf and roots and explains how water moves from the roots, along the xylem to the leaves by the transpiration stream. The lesson begins by taking the form of a game of Pictionary where students are challenged in alternating rounds to recognise the cells of the plant or to explain how their features enable processes such as diffusion or osmosis. Moving forwards, students will learn that plants lose water by transpiration and then replace this by absorbing more through their roots. The remainder of the lesson focuses on how the transpiration stream works to move water through the plant. There are constant progress checks so that students can assess their understanding and the format of the lesson allows this topic, which is commonly not enjoyed by the students to remain engaging and motivating.This lesson is written for GCSE students. Those who want a lesson for A level, should find my alternative resource called "Transpiration Stream".

B2: AQA AdditionalBiology 2017 Exam Support.

B2: AQA AdditionalBiology 2017 Exam Support.

All spec codes must be examined through a three year period with AQA exams. This is a spec code frequency analysis of 2015-16 exams for both foundation and higher exam papers leading to very specific lesson focus and pupil revision. It highlights spec codes that HAVE NOT appeared in the last two years leading to a very high probability of them appearing in summer 2017. This tool has analysed 2016 and 2015 exam papers and completed a frequency count of each lettered spec code. This summarises into a combined table to prepare for the 2017 exams. It highlights lettered spec codes that have not been assessed in the last two years by showing as green. Being the last year of AQA Additional exams before the 1-9 exams there is a very high probability of possible topics that will appear in the summer exams. It colours through a spectrum of red to green, of other specs which have been assessed, but infrequently. It shows this by a simple count and relative frequency to the number of spec codes. The relative analysis tool shows how common it has appeared in the last two years relative to the number of spec points. A low spec count could still have a high relative count showing a lower probability. There is also a combined summary for F and H papers if you teach mixed groups. Each analyse is shown graphically leading to easy displays for pupils to review key areas to focus. On following tabs there is a full spec checklist filterable by their appearance in either F, H or both so pupils can view this information in a checklist explaining each spec point. This has then lead to a checklist revision list for both F and H papers. A F and H revision pack is then included with past exam question specifically themed on these areas to help support and lead revision up to the summer exams. Mark schemes and examiners reports are included for these questions. The aim of the support pack is to help prepare for the summer exams of 2017. This is a very unique situation where we can have a good chance of using this analyse to target revision and focus the pupils.

Aerobic Respiration

Aerobic Respiration

A detailed and engaging lesson presentation (35 slides) that looks at the chemical process of aerobic respiration, where it happens and the key products of this reaction. The lesson begins by students seeing the word equation for aerobic respiration (but with the words scrambled up). Students are challenged to recognise the reactants and products and to recognise this as respiration from their previous knowledge at KS3. Moving forwards, students will learn that this is specifically aerobic respiration because of the presence of oxygen. Students will be given a recap on how to balance symbol equations so that they are able to do this with this equation. A number of quick competitions are used to introduce students to the energy store, ATP and time is taken to explain key details about this substance and how it is used in the body. A set homework is included in the lesson which challenges students to recognise how respiration and breathing differ.This lesson has been designed for GCSE students
