AQA 9-1 Biology Required practicals revision

AQA 9-1 Biology Required practicals revision

A resource outlining all 10 required practicals, with links to suitable videos to remove the need to re-do all practicals (impossible in one or two lessons). Each slide is simply laid out to prompt students with ‘possible questions’ and an overview from a video, of the practical. The resource is divided into Paper 1 & paper 2, so you could deliver it over 2 lessons. I have also included the new AQA key command words, many of which are relevant to practicals, for students to do as a long starter type task, identifying what would be expected if they saw each word in a Q. the resource also clearly identifies which resources are not required for trilogy (also synergy).

Inheritance, Variation & Evolution Scheme of Work

Inheritance, Variation & Evolution Scheme of Work

This resource contains the entire scheme of work for AQA 9-1 Inheritance, Variation & Evolution. Each lesson is complete, with powerpoints, extensions and separate past paper questions. There is a large variety of AFL tasks/ differentiation and activity styles included, as well as suggested homeworks. This is one of the most comprehensive resource bundles of it’s kind available, and is easily adapted to fit your own timelines, or to fit other exam boards. Lessons are titled as follows. How are plants & animals adapted to reproduce? How do cells in the body replicate? How do sex cells replicate, and lead to variation? What is the human genome? How is the structure of DNA linked to protein synthesis (Bio only) Why do offpring share characteristics with their parents? What are mutations (Bio) & inherited disorders? How is sex determined, and how can we represent this? (mendel- Bio only) What is, and what causes variation? What is evolution & what evidence do we have for this? What is the theory of evolution & speciation ( bio only) How do fossils help us learn about evolution & extinction? How do we classify similar organisms? What is selective breeding? What is genetic engineering? How does cloning take place? (Bio only) What is the impact of antibiotic resistance?

DNA

DNA

A KS3 resource, in this instance was delivered to a mixed ability year 8 group. The lesson covers DNA in a good amount of detail, without going into the unneeded complexities of base pairing, the technical naming of structures etc. May be a good resource to revise DNA with low ability KS4 exam groups also. Students will explore the work of Watson & Crick, before considering the use of DNA and prior learning covered on cells which don’t fit the pattern in terms of DNA or chromosomes. Students will visit the idea of mutations, and consider what they are, using a simple letter replacement game (they can design their own after seeing the example (challenge). Finally followed by some past question practice (GCSE AO1)> `This lesson is fully differentiated, with extension and challenge throughout’

Reproduction & Evolution

Reproduction & Evolution

A KS3 resource (or KS4 recap lesson) on how reproduction leads to evolution. The lesson considers evolution, natural selection (Darwin’s finches) and extinction. The lesson has been planned for year 8 but will perfectly suit 7-9 depending on your schools schemes. Lesson contains a variety of engaging and differentiated tasks, including a mini practical, which can easily be substituted for ipad research or demo. PPQs are also included .
