AQA Biology 1-9 Paper 2 revision quiz

AQA Biology 1-9 Paper 2 revision quiz

Designed as a quick overview of some of the key topics covered for the AQA Biology triology paper 2 specification. With extra notes for seperate biology GCSE. A knowledge based quiz devised to fill any last minute knowledge gaps and to help students recognise areas of weakness prior to exam. This could also be used a pre-exam rev up; getting the students ready for the exam. The one I devised for paper 1 was a great hit with students and other users too. There are two versions; version 1 has the questions followed by the answers and Version 2 has the entire topic questions followed by the answers after all questions have been given. Please do leave feedback. Enjoy the quiz. All feedback would be appreciated. A great resources for a last minute revision session. The previous one got over 100 downloads in the first few hours of upload. Great resource.

Epistatis OCR A Level Year 2 lesson power point

I put this lesson together as my students had read the notes from the text book and just didn’t understand the concept, so I put this together for my mixed ability set and they said they found it easy to follow and it clarified the topic for them and they found the evidence in the worked through examples helpful.

KS3 Science Teaching Pack: Shock Horror Science: Biology

KS3 Science Teaching Pack: Shock Horror Science: Biology

The horror story ‘Frankenstein’ was published in 1818. At the same time that the author Mary Shelley was writing her scary novel, scientists of the day were experimenting with electricity, and how to make batteries. One particularly creepy experiment involved passing electricity through dead bodies, making them quiver and twitch, and even sit upright. Some people thought the corpses were coming back to life. Mary Shelley knew all about these experiments, and used them to inspire her writing. In this lesson on genetic engineering, students complete a research task looking into examples of genetic engineering and an extended writing task in which they create their own monster.

GCSE Bio- Reproduction (Homeostasis) in 30 mins

GCSE Bio- Reproduction (Homeostasis) in 30 mins

This revision lesson covers hormones in reproduction, contraception and hormones to treat infertility from homeostasis. This lesson is designed to be a quick recall lesson that lasts approx 30 mins. The activities range from spot the mistakes in IVF to guess the type of contraception. This allows students to recap the key areas and address any misconceptions they might have in the lead up to their exams. The lesson also includes low demand, standard demand and high demand questions. There is a worksheet for the students to use as they follow the lesson and they can use it as a revision resource afterwards (I recommend to print it in A3). This is found towards the end of the ppt. This lesson is one of many in a series of 30 min revision lessons so do have a look at my other resources.
