Blood components - complete lesson (KS4)

Blood components - complete lesson (KS4)

This is a full differentiated lesson based on the new AQA (B4.1) SOW but can be used for others. The lesson starts with a short video on blood components to incite interest. There is then a short talk on blood plasma, RBCs, WBC and platelets - students fill in a table as you progress through the slides. Students then apply their knowledge to a differentiated question grid challenge, and self/peer mark. The practical is based on students using microscopes to observe blood components (microscopes and preprepared slides required) and answering questions. A stretch activity is included for the more able, again answers are included to facilitate self/peer marking. The plenary consists of students reflecting upon their progress against the learning objectives, peers can select one another to share answers.

Includes: embedded videos and timers, slide animations, practice questions with answers on slides. AQA spec link: 4.3.1.7 Relevant chapter: B6 Preventing and treating disease. AQA Biology third edition textbook-Page 98-99 Specification requires students to know the following; Students should be able to explain how vaccination will prevent illness in an individual, and how the spread of pathogens can be reduced by immunising a large proportion of the population. Vaccination involves introducing small quantities of dead or inactive forms of a pathogen into the body to stimulate the white blood cells to produce antibodies. If the same pathogen re-enters the body the white blood cells respond quickly to produce the correct antibodies, preventing infection. Students do not need to know details of vaccination schedules and side effects associated with specific vaccines.
