Revision sheets for AQA A2 Biology. Sections 4.1-4.7 are thanks to shooppoop. I have just added section 4.8 on as well. If you have switched to the new AQA Biology A Level please check out the revision sheets that I have made for the new specification for the AS Level too: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-biology-new-as-specification-revision-diagrams-for-topic-1-2-3-and-4-and-required-practicals-11244072
New AQA AS Specification Thinking Snap Revision for Topic 1 and Topic 4

New AQA AS Specification Thinking Snap Revision for Topic 1 and Topic 4

(11)
This is a fun revision resource for the new AQA AS Specification. The idea if that they can play in pairs or groups. They have to shuffle the cards and then play snap - so keep putting the cards face up one after another. If a pupil says snap then they have to explain what both cards have on them and make a link between the two cards. If their partner/rest of the group thinks the link is a valid link (i.e. Biuret test will be positive if a protein is present) then they get to keep both cards. The winner has the most cards at the end. The pictures summarise the following topics: Section 3.1: Biological Molecules 3.1.1 Monomers and Polymers 3.1.2 Carbohydrates 3.1.3 Lipids 3.1.4.1 Proteins 3.1.4.2 Enzymes 3.1.5.1 Nucleic acid structure 3.1.5.2 DNA Replication 3.1.6 ATP 3.1.7 Water 3.1.8 Inorganic Ions Section 3.4 Genetic information, variation and relationships between organisms 3.4.1 DNA, genes and chromosomes 3.4.2 DNA and protein synthesis 3.4.3 Genetic diversity - mutations and meiosis 3.4.4 Genetic diversity and adaptation – natural selection 3.4.5 Species and taxonomy 3.4.6 Biodiversity 3.4.7 Investigating biodiversity

AQA iGCSE Chemistry Connect four revision card Qs:Crude oil & fuels,products from crude oil& organic

(1)
These are the cards for AQA iGCSE Chemistry Crude oil and fuels, other products from crude oil and alcohols, carboxylic acids and esters to go with the connect four template (which is free to download: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/connect-four-template-for-revision-11251685). They need to be printed double sided so each card has a number on the back. Pupils take it in turns to put coloured counters in the frame with the aim of getting four counters in a row. Pupils compete to win connect four in pairs. Each circle corresponds to a question card. If they get the question right then they can place their counter there. If they get their question wrong then either that circle becomes unavailable (and they have to get four in a row in some other way) or the other person to the person that wants to place their counter there has to make up a question for that person to get right to enable them to put their counter in that circle.

Adapted from Emily Kang's resource here: http://www.scienceinschool.org/content/ready-set-infect I use with GCSE pupils to reinforce the idea of phagocytes and lymphocytes roles. I give each pupil a role card and if they are pathogen then an antigen card to go with it. If they are a lymphocyte producing antibodies or antitoxins then they need a corresponding antibody or antitoxin card. I just printed the different types of pathogens and their corresponding antibodies on different coloured card but no need to.

Blockbusters for defence against disease AQA iGSCE

Idea from becca40 - thank you!! https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/blockbusters-revision-starter-plenary-pairs-activity-periodic-table-11527836 Instructions below also from her guidance: Based on the TV show Blockbusters. Learners should play in pairs. One of the pair should try to make a chain from top to bottom, the other should try to make a chain from side to side. Each block contains a letter or letters which is a key word or phrase from the topic. Statements to go with each of the letters are to be found on the right hand side of the sheet. Learners should colour the block (and could write the answer in) when they get the answer right. First in the pair to make the chain wins.

Chemistry Edexcel iGCSE Monopoly Game

Adapted for Chemistry - the topics we cover in Year 9 but might be applicable to other Chemistry syllabuses or could be changed. States of Matter Elements Compounds & Mixtures Sub-atomic particles Atomic and mass numbers Electron Shells Periodic Table Chemical formulae Ionic/Covalent/Metallic Bonding Gases in the air Organic Chemistry (cracking, fractional distillation, burning fuels) Rates of reaction Polymers Updated to add questions for the places and changed the places to labs instead of random place names. Updated again as I forgot to put a price for the added lab properties and also named one of the red properties incorrectly on the board! Thank you to j_leemosley for the initial template: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/monopoly-inspired-revision-template-11581728
Revision and Memory Session for GCSE

Revision and Memory Session for GCSE

Made this for a revision session to be delivered to Year 10. Could easily be given to Year 11 as well. Did an activity as a starter how many words can you remember from a list of random objects then explained about making a journey through your house (Dominic O’ Brien - memory champion tips) or a story with the words and then see if they could improve how many they could remember with a different set of words using this strategy.

Year 7 Work booklets

These are what I have put together for Year 7 lessons next year. I haven’t used them yet so they will probably need tweaking! Topics include: Life processes Cell structure Variation Classification Micro-organisms Plant reproduction Human reproduction Ecology Thank you to Mrs Masters @mrsjmasters who provided me with her templates (some of the cell structure one includes parts from her booklet!) She has written an interesting article on how she uses booklets here: https://pedagoggles.wordpress.com/2019/02/08/teaching-with-booklets/ I have removed our school marking guidance and lab rules so you would need to put your school guidelines in these places. Updated to include clearer marking guidance and quizlet QR codes.
Metals and Metal Extraction Learning Grid Revision Activity for AQA iGCSE Chemistry

Metals and Metal Extraction Learning Grid Revision Activity for AQA iGCSE Chemistry

(0)
This was produced with iGCSE AQA Chemistry in mind but may be useful for other specifications. The idea behind this is you put the learning grid up on the board and pupils role a dice every 5 minutes and then spend that 5 minutes annotating the handout of the learning grid corresponding to the number on the dice with as much as they can remember on each topic (I normally print it double sided A3 size but I guess A4 would be fine too). It helps to keep them focused as the topic changes every 5 minutes and they have to pick out the key details associated with the pictures. Time limit could be changed. To make it more difficult pupils can role the dice twice and have to make a link between the two topics corresponding to those numbers.

Carbon and Nitrogen Card Sort and summary of decay and decomposers in nutrient cycles

(2)
The card sorts can be cut out by pupils and stuck onto A3 paper or you can use it as a laminated reusable card sort. I have also included a picture of what the final versions look like. If they require a bit more help the C and N cycle blank sheets can be used and the cards arranged into the gaps on there or they can be used further down the line to get them to fill them in for revision. There is also a worksheet summarising decay - saprobionts and detritivores along with the answers.

Revision grids with links for AQA Biology AS and A2 Biology

Designed to be emailed to pupils or put on to an online portal where they can click on the links to revise topics they are unsure of. Please comment if you find any links which are better than any of these or have any extras to add! The pages and colours are linked to how my school teaches the specification so each teacher is on one page and has either red and orange fill or blue and green fill but this can be edited to suit you.

Hexagon linking sheet for key words and blank hexagons

(6)
An idea I have developed further from @LessonToolbox Use hexagons to encourage pupils to understand how the key words for a topic link together. More information here: https://lessontoolbox.wordpress.com/2016/03/27/buzzing-about-hexagons/ Also includes a blank version of just hexagons that you can get a set laminated so pupils can write key words on them and you can use them for multiple tasks.

Enzymes Animation Activity or Storyboard

(1)
I used these to help pupils make an animation of the breakdown of starch but equally could just be used as a storyboard. Enzymes storyboard explaining the breakdown of starch into maltose. Differentiated so help option 1 has blanks for the key words, then help option 2 has full sentences and then help option 3 is to watch the video which you could set up on iPad/computer.
