Biology GCSE foundation tier 2 lessons: menstrual cycle and contraception

Biology GCSE foundation tier 2 lessons: menstrual cycle and contraception

Developed for the new specification AQA exam board, but would work for other exam boards. Higher tier lesson are also available (which has the added lesson for fertility treatment) The menstrual cycle lesson starts with 'menst side story' where the students complete a table and then go on to make a cartoon based on knowledge gained. The second lesson requires the students to take on the role of the hormones (or other characters) to develop their peer teaching skills. Resources are fully differentiated and there is opportunity to explore exam command words. Suggested home works are included as well as required resources and potential alternative activities.

3 lessons for Higher Tier GCSE Biology : the menstrual cycle; contraception and fertility treatment

3 lessons for Higher Tier GCSE Biology : the menstrual cycle; contraception and fertility treatment

Based on the AQA specification (new specification), but would work for other exam boards. The lessons start with 'menst side story' (embedded in the PowerPoint) where the hormones play characters and the students answer questions based on the story. Students go on to build a model of the graph of the different hormone. In the contraception lesson, the students assume the roles of the hormones (and other characters) to explain how a contraceptive method works as a peer teaching exercise. Fertility treatment lesson is a debate lesson. All lessons are fully differentiated to three levels of difficulty and include opportunities to explore exam command words. Suggested home works are included, as well as information of resources required, specification references and alternative approaches, where appropriate.

Grade 9 Biology midterm exam

Grade 9 Biology midterm exam

This exam is a midterm assessment I produced for my grade 9 Biology class. The questions are varied in type and difficulty. Most questions are illustrated with diagrams. The questions are based on the UK Double award GCSE Biology syllabus, but are similar in content to other courses. Topics covered: Characteristics of living organisms Cell Structure Movement in and out of cells Enzymes Nutrients Plant nutrition Animal nutrition Transport in plants Transport in animals Aerobic and Anaerobic respiration Gas exchange. Suggested exam length is 55 mins-1 hours. You may wish to alter this depending on your students reading level. The mark scheme is attached to the end of the exam.
