NEW AQA GCSE Biology (2016) - Dialysis & kidney transplants HT

NEW AQA GCSE Biology (2016) - Dialysis & kidney transplants HT

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Homeostasis' SoW and for higher tier pupils. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience The lesson begins with an introduction to the reasons why a patient might be suffering with kidney damage and introduced to the treatments pupils will be learning about this lesson: dialysis and kidney transplants. For the next part of the lesson pupils will then need to get into four groups, two groups will read information on the treatment of dialysis and two will read information on kidney transplants. Using this information pupils will answer questions in their book and once a group has finished with one of the treatments, they should swap with another groups and answer questions about the other treatment. This task should take 40 minutes in total, once finished pupils should self-assess their work using the answers provided on the PowerPoint presentation. The last activity is for pupils to answer an exam-style question on the function of the kidneys and treatment for patients with kidney disease, once completed pupils can mark their work using the mark scheme provided. The plenary task is a 3-2-1 task, pupils write down 3 facts, 2 key words and 1 question to test peers knowledge of the topic of the lesson. 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 :)

Specialised cells

Specialised cells

An engaging and informative lesson presentation (34 slides) and accompanying worksheet that is designed to challenge students to understand how the features of some animal and plant cells allow them to carry out specific functions. The lesson focuses on the red blood cell, white blood cell and palisade cell before students are expected to use the format shown in class to write details about a root hair cell for homework. Key terminology, such as haemoglobin, biconcave and enzymes are used throughout the lesson so that students are exposed to this type of language. There are regular progress checks written into the lesson so that students can assess their understanding. This lesson has been designed for both KS3 and GCSE students

AQA Biomimicry - Neural Networks (W4L1 )

For the new AQA Science specification (2016). I made this for an observed lesson for my NQT year, received lots of praise. File includes: powerpoint, resources and help sheet (hidden slides within the powerpoint), and practical idea. Note: The jigsaw was created using the image on slide 14. This can be generated using any online jigsaw puzzle generator website.
