Helping the heart - complete lesson (KS4)

Helping the heart - complete lesson (KS4)

A full lesson based on the new AQA B4.4 SOW. The lesson covers issues with heart valves and pacemakers as well as the rectification of each. There is then a 17 mark past paper question for students to apply and consolidate their learning (answers included). Student notes and textbooks can be used for support. Artificial and donor hearts are then discussed over 3 slides. The students then complete independent research on 5 key points relating to heart transplantation, this can be done as a poster, leaflet or students can give brief paragraphs for each point. Ipads or access to a computer is required for this task. The plenary is based on the students reflecting upon their progress against the learning objectives.
