I am relatively new to selling resources on TES, so if you like something, please review it! I am constantly updating and developing new resources - I like to concentrate the majority of my time on developing scientific skills through the use of practical work and application - conveniently this sits well with the new GCSE. I also am involved in developing schemes for the new GCSE (at my school) so will post anything I can to help others in this area.

Aseptic techniques/culturing bacteria/testing antibiotics  *BIG PRACTICAL*

Aseptic techniques/culturing bacteria/testing antibiotics *BIG PRACTICAL*

Resources developed as part of a *BIG PRACTICAL*. These are designed to practice a skill - usually using a preliminary investigation - then a full investigation write up. These are tailored toward the way the new GCSE (2016 on wards) is designed to test practical skills as well as context. First lesson Resources: aseptic techniques practice, pupils-account-of-aseptic-techniques (+ppt) Practical: Pupils culture a known bacterial both using aseptic techniques, with an aim of achieving zero contamination. Activities order: Teacher intro, practical write up using frame and practical, KILLER CHALLENGE correcting a poor aseptic method Second lesson Resources: Testing antibiotics (+ppt) Practical: Pupils complete the same method of culturing known bacterial broths using aseptic techniques but add antibiotic disks. Activity order: Look at plates from previous lesson and look if they have been successful and what they need to improve. Practical and write up. Third lesson Resources: Antibiotic plate sheet, Diameter-zone-of-inhibition (+ppt) Activity order: Look at antibiotic plates, Complete sheet looking at antibiotics and comparing zones of inhibition, calculating zones of inhibition for comparison.

Required Practical AQA 2016 Making Onion Slide/Magnification/Calculating the Size of a Cell

Required Practical AQA 2016 Making Onion Slide/Magnification/Calculating the Size of a Cell

This is a unit (4 lessons) for filling the AQA required practical although can be easily used for other specifications. The method used are the recommended practical methods published by AQA. There was a mistake with the equation in the given methods which has been confirmed by AQA so this unit is correct but does differ slightly from the published material. The lessons are as follows: 1) Label and compare plant and animal cells 2) Prepare and onion slide and calculate the size of one cell 3 ) Compare prokaryotic and eukaryotes 4) Calculate magnification of specimens This has been designed as part of a year 9 scheme of work which have been fully undated to cover the new AQA specification, change in assessment objective weightings and mathematical requirements. This is a free upload and is a sample of my other units. Please leave a review of these resources
