Science graphing tasks & questions (bar chart, straight & curved line, gradient, tangent)

Science graphing tasks & questions (bar chart, straight & curved line, gradient, tangent)

Worksheet consisting of 3 main tasks based on experimental data (A: Making a barchart, B: Making a straight line graph, C: Making a curved line graph). Also included few questions on variables (IDV, DV, C) and things like resolution, range and conclusions for good measure. The last page is a higher level/GCSE level extension task to calculate gradients and draw a tangent (not loads of explanation, but some basic instruction). The resource can be used from Year 7 to Year 11, especially with the gradients and tangents in the GCSE Chemistry and Physics. Please rate and review for visibility and check out my shop for more KS3 and GCSE resources!

Cryogenic storage at MRC Harwell explained by a technician

Cryogenic storage at MRC Harwell explained by a technician

Sperm, eggs and other tissue can be stored indefinitely in liquid nitrogen. At MRC Harwell research institute doing so avoids the need to maintain breeding colonies of mice for every characteristic. This clip was filmed at MRC Harwell as part of a 360 laboratory tour in 2017. This film about cryogenic storage and another about cryogenic safety can be seen within the tour here: http://labanimaltour.org/tours/harwell/#node8

Plant Facts Scavenger Hunt - An Activity

Plant Facts Scavenger Hunt - An Activity

Plant Facts Scavenger Hunt: This scavenger hunt introduces to students about the some of the FACTs things on the various plants and science behind it. There are 20 scavenger hunt cards with colorful pictures. It’s a great tool for to review about the facts with science and vocabulary on plant. Preview images may have reduced picture quality due to jpeg file. But original .pdf file contains clear images. How to Use: Print the given all 20 cards on a card stock or any other good paper and cut them along the black line. Get the print of Plant Facts Scavenger Hunt questions pages and each student should be given this copy. Place Scavenger Hunt cards around the classroom.

AQA GCSE Biology Bioenergetics Learning Grid

AQA GCSE Biology Bioenergetics Learning Grid

This resource is intended as a collaborative revision activity. It is suitable for the Bioenergetics topic (4.4) in the new AQA GCSE Biology qualification. Students work in small groups and take turns to roll 2 dice in order to determine a square on the grid. The student must then describe/explain the contents of the square to the rest of the group. This can be made more challenging by determining two separate squares and making links between them both. Differentiated for Foundation and Higher students, with versions of each containing ? squares to allow for the use of exam-style questions in addition. Includes a learning checklist for the topic.

Carbon cycle game

Carbon cycle game

This may suit KS3 or KS4. I have seen and used (although a while ago) a similar nitrogen cycle game with KS3 and KS4. For higher ability KS4 I have added a file for constructing a carbon cycle of their own. You will need dice and each student will need a passport. They have a starting destination and write it on their passport. When they get to the desk with that destination, they roll a dice and it gives them the name of the next destination. When they get there, they write it in their passport. At the end, they use their passports and a copy of the carbon cycle to tell the story of their journey.
