Body mass index KS3

A fully resourced lesson for pupils in KS3 to learn about BMI and evaluate its validity. There is also scope to include a practical element in which pupils measure their own BMI during the lesson, but it is a minor part of the lesson and can be removed if necessary. Lesson includes a starter, notes and images for discussion, a case study activity, a BMI evaluation task, and a plenary.

Breathing and Ventilation

Breathing and Ventilation

A power point to aid students understanding of breathing and the pressure/volume differences that occur during inhalation and exhalation. This links directly to the edexcel syllabus - 2.47 understand the role of the intercostal muscles and the diaphragm in ventilation. I have included a worksheet from edexcel AS biology to calculate the surface area of the lungs as a starter activity. Also included is the video on breathing by TedEd which gives a nice introduction to the process and also links into respiration. Plenary - edexcel exam questions

Lifestyle and health - risk factors for disease

Lifestyle and health - risk factors for disease

A collection of resources for a lesson on disease risk factors. Students begin by completing the health questionnaire. Then the term 'risk factor' is defined. Students then independently look at several pieces of data which link risk factors and disease. This is a good lesson for dealing with data.
