Classification hierarchy

Classification hierarchy

An engaging lesson presentation (34 slides) and associated worksheets that introduces students to classification using the taxonomic levels and teaches them how to name species using the binomial naming system. The students are told about the domain system, as developed by Carl Woese, but then the lesson focuses on showing them the seven levels that come after this. Students are challenged to understand how the levels differ from each other in terms of sharing characteristics. Time is taken to focus on the five kingdoms and links are made to other topics such as prokaryotic cells to test their previous knowledge. Moving forwards, students are shown how the genus and species are used in the binomial naming system before being given lots of opportunities to assess their understanding through questions. This lesson has been written for GCSE students but is suitable for all age ranges

AQA GCSE Biology Topic 2Organisation Flash Cards

AQA GCSE Biology Topic 2Organisation Flash Cards

Over 60 flash cards with questions and answers. Questions have been made based on common questions students get wrong and include working scientifically questions and maths questions. The last page has 6 bonus MCQ flash cards which test understanding of other questions within the flash card pack. These flash cards could be given to students after they have completed topic two or saved for in year 11 when hard core revision begins! Alternatively, I made the flash cards on PPT as I often copy one of the slides over and have my students complete the questions on it as a settler in order to interleave content. The slides have been made in PPT and are fully editable. Print using the 'Print on both sides. Print on long edge' option under print settings. Please leave a review with any comments or suggestions:)
