A level Chemistry Transition/Taster Lessons

(0)
A series of lessons that students can complete in class or at home. It is an introduction to the first units studied and builds on previous knowledge learned at GCSE. Lessons include: Describe the structure of the atom and atomic particles Calculate mass number and atomic number Define the term isotope Explain what is relativity and why do we compare to carbon 12 Define relative isotopic mass, relative atomic mass, relative molecular mass and relative formula mass

Fast and Slow Twitch Muscle Fibres

(2)
A PPT with information regarding the 2 types of fibres. Students collect information about the fibres from around the room (included in PPT) and complete a table stating the differences. They can then use their knowledge to predict the types of fibres found in different animal muscles. There is an exam question and mark scheme to determine understanding of subject material. I have included the lesson plan I provided when I was observed so feel free to tweak it to suit your group.

A2: Controlling the Breathing Rate. The role of the respiratory centre.

(0)
A complete lesson to introduce the idea of how exercise can increase the rate of ventilation to remove the build up of carbon dioxide. It looks at the negative feedback systems involved which maintain breathing rate. It also introduces spirometer traces and the definitions which which will lead to the core practical (edexcel IAL). There are plenty of discussion opportunities, a video and an exam question for self assessment.

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.

Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance (A level)

(0)
Tow power point lessons which look at the action of antibiotics on bacteria - bacteriostatic and bactericidal. Also, how natural selection has made certain bacteria resistant to antibiotics and why this has occurred. There are activities for the students to promote active learning plus video resources and questions.

Edexcel I A Level Biology - Light Microcope unit and Core Practical

(0)
This series of 3 lessons covers: the terms magnification and resolution the differences between light and electron microscopes the importance of staining in microscopy; a series of practicals with instructions how to make plan drawings of specimens how to use a graticule. I have included different tasks, some individual and some group work. I have encouraged my students to study independently rather than give all of the information. There are also a series of exam questions to test understanding. These lessons provide support towards the core practical

IAL Topic 8 Coodination in Animals and Plants

(1)
A series of complete lessons covering the syllabus content for the IAL Biology topic 8B. This includes the structure and function of the mammalian nervous system. The structure of the spinal cord and brain. The peripheral nervous system How we investigate the structure and functions of the brain The effect of drugs on synapses Chemical control in plants Phytochrome and seed germination/flowering I have tried to include various methods for both independent and group learning. There are also short assessment questions to check understanding.

IAL Edexcel Biology Unit 1 Revision Practice (18 pages of questions)

(1)
A series of activities for students to complete in class or at home in preparation for the unit 1 examination. It is most useful to use before they attempt exam past papers. Resources include: A learning grid with focused questions to ensure students cover main topics in unit 1 (18 pages). This includes biological molecules; Heart and cardiac cycle; Blood transport system; CVD; Cell membranes; Movement across membranes; Gas exchange; Inheritance; DNA replication; Protein synthesis; Mutations Also with questions focused towards core practicals.

I have used my own resources and a few slides from other Tes members (thank you!) to put together a PPT which recalls the equation for momentum and then looks at how to calculate force using the change of momentum and time. There are also exam questions included for extra practice!

Developing Immunity - Natural, Artificial, Active and Passive

(0)
This resource focuses on Edexcel specification link 6.11 It introduces the different types of immunity. There is a video resource and questions to check understanding. The information cards can be printed and put around room for students to collect information to make it more interactive. I was short on time so I went through them on the board as students made their own notes.
