iGCSE Edexcel 9-1 Biology Chemistry Physics Chpt 1&2 Revision Mat Broadsheet Bundle

iGCSE Edexcel 9-1 Biology Chemistry Physics Chpt 1&2 Revision Mat Broadsheet Bundle

This is a bundle of A3 summary sheets I made for my students using the Pearson iGCSE Student book: the questions in each box inspire students to summarise the work that they need to know for this section. This resource includes the first two chapters of each of the Biology (Section A: Life Processes and The Variety of Living Organisms) and Chemistry (Section A: Kinetic Theory, Diffusion, Atomic Structure) topics, and Chapters 1 and 2 of the Physics topic (Movement and postion and Forces and Shape). I am gradually adding the other Chapters as I go along. I would print each of these topics on an A3 sheet double sided, so that the same topic is on a double-sided sheet. It would also be good to pop each sheet onto a double-sided coloured A3 sheet, then you can make each topic (Bio/Chem/Physics) a different colour to easily refer to them in class.

Fungi Resources for Primary Schools

Fungi Resources for Primary Schools

The British Mycological Society run their National event ‘UK Fungus day’ every year at the start of National Biology week in October. Please find lots of fun fungi activities that you can do with pupils to mark the event or some other time (we don’t mind when fungi are promoted!)

Quiz questions project

Quiz questions project

This resource is best used for students aged 11-18 as it is a generic template and strategy based on the value of questions and questioning. It is useful due to this. The aim is to prepare a quiz based presentation to share with others or use as a revision resource. The objectives to be fulfilled by the end of this project are; a development in the ability to devise, answer and evaluate key questions. Differentiation is by outcome or teacher selection so, for example, only the most able students are given the trickier tasks or given the role of leadership. Questions are a great learning tool, they have the potential to boost thinking, independent learning, retention, teamwork, collaboration and communication like no other strategy. Teachtoday July 2018

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Distribution of Organisms

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Distribution of Organisms

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the ‘Ecology’ SoW. **For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience ** The lesson begins with students recapping on the factors which may affect the distribution of organisms within an environment. Once pupils have discussed their ideas of abiotic and biotic factors which may affect organisms within their habitat they will need to assess their work using the answers provided. The lesson will then focus on sampling techniques, firstly outlining what a quadrat is and how it is used when sampling an environment. The importance of random sampling is stressed & pupils will need to come up with some ideas as to how random samples could be obtained. Once their ideas have been assessed pupils can then move onto a worksheet which demonstrates how random sampling is conducted and explains how to work out the range, mean, median & mode of a data set. Transect sampling is now introduced, pupils will watch a video and answer a set of questions watching the video. Once this task is complete pupils can answer the question using the answers provided on the PowerPoint presentation. The final task is for pupils to perform their own sampling investigation, a worksheet is provided detailing the equipment needed, a method, a species identification key & a results table. Pupils can work in groups of 3 - 5 and use an area close to school such as the sports field / any large grassy area to complete their investigation. Once this is complete pupils can use their data set to find the range, mean, median & mode for each species. The plenary task is for pupils to write down three facts, three key words and a question based on what they have learned this lesson. All resources are included at the end of the presentation. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)

Antibiotics

Antibiotics

An engaging lesson presentation and associated worksheet that looks at the use of antibiotics to treat bacterial infections and the raises the issue of the potential over-use of these substances. The lesson begins by getting the students to recognise the difference between three key terms that begin with anti (antibiotics, antivirals, antiseptics). Students will be introduced to the idea that antibiotics are specific to a small range of bacteria and therefore the correct one has to be selected before being prescribed. Moving forwards, students will meet the idea of the zone of inhibition and will understand how the size of this zone can be used as an indicator to the effectiveness of the treatment. Students are shown how to calculate the size of the zone and then are tested on their ability to apply this mathemetical knowledge. Finally, time is taken to look at the links to the topic of natural selection to explain how some bacteria are resistant to certain antibiotics. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but could be used as an introduction with A-level Biology students who are about to begin the topic of immunity.

Introduction to Biology Hierarchies Card Sort

Introduction to Biology Hierarchies Card Sort

A card sort exercise with biological hierarchies matched to their descriptions. I used this as an ice breaker to assess what the students already know. It is aimed at first year foundation degree students but could be used for GCSE or ALevel Biology. I printed these out, laminated them and then cut around each box. They could be an individual or a group activity.
