A level Biology Mass Transport System Analogy

(0)
The principles of a circulatory system. Objective: Know why many animals have a heart and circulation which act as a mass transport system to overcome the limits of diffusion A simple worksheet to generate a discussion amongst pairs/groups. Students use the analogy of a public transport system which makes it easier to understand an animal transport system.

AS Marine Science: Ecosystems and Biodiversity

(0)
Section 2: Marine Ecosystems and Biodiversity Complete lessons covering the following points: The meaning of the terms: ecosystem, habitat, population, community, species, biodiversity and ecological niche Describing interrelationships within marine ecosystems to include mutualism and parasitism explain the meaning of the term: producer, comsumer, predator, prey and trophic level in context of food chains and food webs explain how populations of predator and prey may be interrelated Each powerpoint has talking points, small activities for students (individually or in pairs), video resources and exam questions. I have also used these for students studying at home.

GCSE BIOLOGY HUMAN TRANSPORT SYSTEM ESCAPE ROOM

(0)
An activity to introduce the main elements of the transport topic or to be used as a revision tool. I have used it in class but it can be used for home schooling assignment or homework. The activity took my students over an hour. There are many tasks the students must complete as they collect their clues. Students need access to the internet to carry out this activity.

Meiosis and the formation of gametes

(0)
2 complete lessons focusing on understanding the role meiosis plays in creating gametes. It focuses on independent assortment and crossing-over. Students have an opportunity to study each phase to compare meiosis to mitosis. The second lesson studies the adaptation of gametes in both plants and animals. This will lead onto sexual reproduction in subsequent lessons.

The Cell Cycle and Mitosis

(0)
A series of three lessons which focuses on A level content from Edexcel Specification but can be applied to other specifications. Content includes Understanding what a chromatid is and how it forms The cell cycle and what occurs at each stage Control of the cell cycle The stages of mitosis Cytokinesis Cell division in both animal and plant cells Mitotic index

IAL Biology Topic 3: Cell Structure Bundle (5+ lessons)

(0)
5 complete lessons with a variety of tasks which explores the structure of cells. Lesson 1 - Observing cells explores different microscopes available to observe cells and discusses the terms resolution and magnification. It also focuses on staining of cells. Lesson 2 - Eukaryotic cells - discover the organelles inside eukaryotic cells and their function within the cell Lesson 3 - Protein transport and the role of RER and Golgi apparatus Lesson 4 - Prokaryotic cells and the organelles present. Gram staining is also looked at. Lesson 5 - organisation of cells, tissues and organs. Lesson 6 - Core Practical 5 Using a graticule The lessons have a range of activities including video resources. Would make a useful tool for home study.

Home school task - GCSE Photosynthesis escape room task/mission

(0)
A task which is suitable for students in class but also during home schooling. It covers GCSE/IGCSE Photosynthesis specification looking at: photosynthesis equation limiting factors structure of the leaf mineral ions photosynthesis practicals The task is set as a spy mission. Students are directed to different websites which included images, videos and information. Students collect the information and use to complete a mission grid which helps them crack the code. In total there are 15 clues, building up their knowledge of photosynthesis. The PPT includes an answer sheet (remove from powerpoint before sharing with students!) My students loved this activity and it gave them a good introduction to photosynthesis.
