The bundle is made up of 4 lessons and a learning outcome sheet where student log progress they have made.
CB8a: Exchange and lungs
CB8b: Circulatory system
The lessons are big and a few of them could run over two.
Revision timetable and resource bank. To use: print and give to the students, put it up in the lab, send it home to parents or publish as an electric copy.
QR codes and hyperlinked topic titles take the students to a revision resource (mostly BBC Bitesize), on most days there is a key diagram and a selection of subtopics to revise.
This resource is designed to chunk the challenge of revision, giving students two months to revise every topic required for the mock exam that Edexcel are using to calibrate results. The calendar starts on the first of March and goes up until two days before the first exam.
Revising is a vital skill that many teachers neglect to teach their pupils. Most students struggle to plan their revision and rely on pre-exam cramming, as these students will not sit their final exam this year we need to ensure we help them retain the information. Spreading it out like this makes it an achievable challenge and will help them with long-term retention.
Bundle includes Edexcel 9-1 - topic 5.
This is a 10 lesson bundle of Edexcel 9-1 topic 5 Health and Disease lessons. Tracking, differentiation, assessment and AFL are build into the lessons.
Lesson 0 - entry test
Lesson 1 - health
Lesson 2 - communicable disease
Lesson 3 - spread and prevention of disease
Lesson 4a - sexuallty transmitted disease
Lesson 4b - chemical and physical barriers
Lesson 5 - immune response
Lesson 6 - antibiotics
Lesson 7 - non-communicable disease
Lesson 8 - obesity and BMI
Lesson 9 - assessment and revision
These are 'plug and play' lessons designed for ease of application and good to outstanding lessons. I am very pleased with this series of lessons as it has inspired a difficult year 10 cohort and increased motivation in science.
The lesson make much use of AFL and directs students to the most appropriate task.
The lessons starts by describing different situations that diffusion takes place in. The understanding is then assessed by a hinge question with differentiated task as the outcome for this. The lesson moves on to discuss osmosis before assessing understanding and directing students to the most appropriate task. Active transport is reviewed before learning is concluded with an exit ticket.
The lesson starts with a reviewing protein and nitrogen fixation. The students then build a nitrogen cycle based on information sheets around the room (with in the ppt). Students then attempt a worksheet before the lesson concludes with an exam question.
The lesson is specific the new Edexcel 9-1 GCSE and part of topic 5.
The lesson starts by discussing the process of pathogens entering the body and the response by the lymphocytes, this is does over 6 slides with fun animations and covers the required learning outcome. There is a brief discussion of vaccination before learning is assessed via a 'deep' hinge point question. There are two activities that, depending on students understanding can be done from this and an extension task. The lesson finishes with an exam question and reflection in the Learning Outcomes sheet.
The lesson starts with recall questions and then moves on to a thinking for learn activity. Students then watch a video and answer some questions based on the video before summerising their understanding. The students then do an exam style question before an exit ticket. I think the resource is good an will promote good learning however it is not as detailed as many of my other lessons so I have listed it for free..... enjoy.
The lesson starts with a short recall quiz before introducing the idea of the heart via and independent research task. After this it is a good opportunity to do a dissection and get the students to annotate on the heart print out the key component of the heart. The lesson then moves to calculate stroke volume and do some graph interpretation of that.
The lesson is of vital importance to young adults as it make students aware of the risk of unprotected sex, the lesson in also LO 5.8 on the new Edexcel 9-1 GCSE scheme.
The do it now activity is a image to inspire disgust and conversation around the topic. There is a short video clip and some active watch questions to inspire conversation. The lesson them moves to looking a facts of 7 STIs and ranking them in an arrowhead 7. There is a brief look on the prevention of the contraction of the disease and then students attempt a exam style HSW worksheet; there is an extension built into the worksheet.
The lesson starts by a summary activity of GMO before the student watch two clips of the pros and cons of GMO. The lesson evolves into a carousel style information gathering task which encourages independence and curiosity. The understanding is assessed via a hinge point question that directs the students to a differentiated worksheet. The lesson is concluded with an exam question.
Over arching concepts in biology.
The lesson is part of a series of lessons that cover topic one of the new GCSE (to be sat in 2017).
This lessons focuses on osmosis and diffusion with the addition of active transport. There are multiple opportunities for differentiation already built in in a bronze, silver gold format. There are two hinge point questions that offer a really good AFL opportunity. The lesson requires potassium permanganate and a deodorant can.
These 5 Biology topics comprise of approximately 60 lessons. The idea of these resources was to make very self sufficient lessons that could consistently deliver good to outstanding outcomes.
The series of lesson have AFL and differentiation built into ensure that planning time in reduced so feedback can be a priority.
Topic 1: overarching concepts in biology
Topic 2: cells and control
Topic 3: genetics
Topic 4: evolution
Topic 5: health and disease
Topic three lesson three focuses on Meiosis . The lesson starts with an key word to definition starter. The lesson moves onto a open discussion and a video. Understanding is assessed via a hinge point question and a bronze (cloze), silver (cloze) or gold task (structured open) is allocated to evidence differentiation and give the students the most appropriate task. The lesson gives the students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge with a step by step labelled diagram before the lesson concludes with an exit ticket.
Topic three lesson six focuses on mutations. The lesson starts by reviewing the previous learning on punnet squares. The lesson them looks at addition, substitution and deletion before some awe and wonder images of mutations in humans and animals. The students then have the human genome project briefly explained before a short practical activity and then a high level comprehension on albinism and eye colour. The lesson concludes with an exit ticket.
The lesson starts by matching the keywords to the images. The lesson then moves to review the examples of the evolution of giraffes linking each stage to the exam specification. The students then rate their confidence and move on to differentiated storyboard tasks looking at the evolution of the woolly mammoth. The lesson finishes with a 6 mark question with a mark scheme so the students can self-assess their answers.
