Diffusion - Differentiated Worksheets

(9)
Set of four differentiated worksheets for use in an introductory lesson on the process of diffusion. Great to use after pupils have observed the diffusion of a potassium permanganate crystal in water in a petri dish for themselves. Lower level Blooms questioning is included. Keywords: Diffusion
Activity for a Lesson on Metabolism (AQA 4.4.2.3)

Activity for a Lesson on Metabolism (AQA 4.4.2.3)

(10)
This is a Brainstorm detailing the key points of the AQA Biology 8461 syllabus. I have used it as part of a group brainstorming activity, as follows: Group pupils into teams with 4/5 members and ask them to work together to create a brainstorm on metabolism. To support them give them a copy of the ‘cue sheet’. To ensure that all members have a role to play and take responsibility for it, also give the groups a ‘group task sheet’. They have to sign their name against the role that they are going to take responsibility for. This ensures that everyone is taking part. Give them a set time to work on the task and then swap the brainstorms between groups and ask them to peer assess them eg write targets for improvement on post-it notes. Give them a set period of time to meet the targets. Then give them a printed copy of the already completed metabolism brainstorm. Ask them to make additions to their own and to highlight anything that they have got which is not on the prepared brainstorm Keywords: metabolism, enzyme, metabolic pathways, anabolic, catabolic, respiration, mitochondria

(0)
Pupils are asked to complete the table as part of an explore task. To be delivered as part of the curriculum for AQA GCSE 4.1.3.1 Diffusion Research can be conducted using textbooks or as part of a websearch Diffusion: adaptations, root, small intestine, leaves, kidney and lungs
Data Analysis - Graph Plotting Skills
GrefintecGrefintec

Data Analysis - Graph Plotting Skills

(1)
I have created this worksheet to support A-Levels students to plot data accurately, but could easily be used with GCSE students. I deliver it as part of a lesson, prior to them doing a practical where they are required to demonstrate this as a skill. The data looks at the effect of temperature on the growth of * Onchorynchus mykiss* (Rainbow trout).

3.3.1 Surface Area:Volume Ratio - Fick's Law

(6)
A worksheet which explains how Fick's Law is calculated and uses alveoli as an example, illustrating how rate of diffusion would change if surface area and/or exchange surface thickness is changed. Includes extension question with answer
Bioenergetics Wordsearch
GrefintecGrefintec

Bioenergetics Wordsearch

(1)
Perfect as a settler task and a great way to learn key words, this wordsearch introduces or helps to consolidate key terms from bioenergetics (AQA 4.2.1, 4.2.2, 4.2.3). Keywords: Mitochondria, heart rate, breathing rate, anaerobic, oxygen debt, lactic acid, glucose, respiration, cells
Chili Challenge Homework Task Sheet
GrefintecGrefintec

Chili Challenge Homework Task Sheet

(4)
This differentiated homework task sheet enables students to take ownership for their own learning. The resource has been created using PowerPoint, this means that text boxes can be inserted onto the challenge levels to describe the tasks. I suggest two or three choices of task per challenge level. The challenge levels are indicated by spiciness, the spicier the task, the more challenging it is. Keywords: whole school, homework, task sheet, worksheet, class template, chili, differentiated

Print Your Own Stage Micrometer

(1)
Whilst I do not claim that these are of the quality you would purchase from a science shop, they are certainly good enough for use in class. Obviously quality is also dependent upon your printer and please only print on printable OHP acetate film . If you use the incorrect type it can melt inside your printer and wreck it. Method Print out on printable transparency acetate film 24 micrometers per A4 sheet Cut out and use directly (no need to put on a slide) Each interval is 500um

I have created this mini test as a quick assessment of my Year 10’s photosynthesis knowledge. Formated with three tests to a page so can be easily answered on the sheet and stuck in books without lots of printing. Answers included.
Biology Catchphrase Game
GrefintecGrefintec

Biology Catchphrase Game

(0)
This is a ten minute game which I created as a revision quiz for A-Level students revising semi-conservative DNA replication, although the board can be used for any biology topic, you just need to set the questions! You can either access the catchphrase board online at: http://www.grefintec.co.uk/catchphraseforbiology/story.html (copy and paste url to address bar) Or you can now download it for offline use from http://www.grefintec.co.uk/downloadslides.html (instruction on the site) Ask the first question to the class. The pupil who gets the question right, gets to choose a square to remove. This continues until either the questions are completed or the catchphrase is guessed. The winner is the person who can guess the biological catchphrase from the picture Just in case you can't work it out - the catchphrase is 'Survival of the fittest' Tip: Ask a pupil to be the game facilitator - enabling you to present the quiz. Enjoy!! Keywords: catchphrase, class game, biology, quick quiz, quiz, genetics, semi-conservative, DNA, DNA replication

Storyboard: What happens when bacteria enter your body?

(0)
Pupils are asked to complete a storyboard to illustrate what happens when a bacteria enters their body. The process starts from the moment 'Toby' gets scratched by his cat. His blood begins to clot then the immune system uses phagocytes and lymphocytes to target the bacteria. Key words: Y shaped molecules, antibodies, phagocyte, phagocytosis, lymphocyte, agglutination, immune system, bacteria, storyboard

Analogy: Effect of Non-Competitive and Competitive Inhibitors on the Rate of Reaction

Analogy: Effect of Non-Competitive and Competitive Inhibitors on the Rate of Reaction

(0)
Analogy for Competitive and Non- Competitive Enzyme Inhibition Rate Graph Situation: Preschool birthday party game of musical chairs. The preschoolers are the substrate, the chairs are the enzymes, dads are competitive inhibitors and siblings are non-competitive inhibitors. Competitive Inhibition Some of the parent’s want to play. But the more parents there are the less likely the preschoolers are going to get a seat when the music stops. Eventually there will be a point when they are out competed for the seats because there are so many parents playing Non Competitive Inhibition The preschoolers have older siblings who are too cool to be at a party like this. When the music starts they run around pushing the chairs over so they can’t be used in the game anymore. It doesn’t matter how many preschoolers there are, they can’t ever fill all of the chairs because some are out of action.
