Inheritance, variation and evolution powerpoint and worksheet

(0)
A PP covering the AQA specification for Biology module 4.6.1 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The resource is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. Each sub-topic includes a few quick multiple choice questions (MCQ) to assess students learning (AFL) I print the worksheets out 6 to a page to save on paper and challenge the students to finish one before coming to get the next and set a timer. Each problem only takes a couple of minutes and the students can challenge themselves to complete as many as they can in the given time. Alternatively they can be displayed and students can work through them independently or on the board as a class. The problems get more complex as they go on and ensure students use the key terms and definitions they should have learned from the Power Point. Topics covered: Sexual and asexual reproduction Meiosis DNA and the genome Genetic inheritance Inherited diseases Sex determination Genetic crosses and Punnett squares

A level reading lists for Biology, Chemistry and Physics

(0)
3 lists for each of the A level Sciences. Suitable for all learners in preparation for their A levels and throughout the course to support their UCAS applications My students are always asking me for a good list of wider reading books so I have compiled a list for each A level Some books are tricky to source/expensive so schools could consider investing in some titles for their library at school or organise a loan scheme Great to hand out to parents or guardians at A level options evenings to help motivate their children

The skills on the front page are linked to Doddle skills (https://www.doddlelearn.co.uk/app/login) However please feel free to remove the codes to make them generic. I have aimed the booklet at year 9 however the activities are transferable across KS3 and KS4 The activities should support students through their science education and help them to get used to terminology they will need for the required practicals at GCSE and A level

A method for making sherbet in the classroom There is opportunity for design and creativity to design packaging and a name for their sherbet which could be used as a cross curricular opportunity with the DT/Art department or as part of your schools STEM development. I have included a small section of food hygiene but please ensure all equipment is clean (I borrow equipment from the food tech department) A bit of fun but also a link to Chemistry in real life and encourages students to think about the reactions happening around them. Can be used for all ages

OCR AS Chemistry Module 1 independent task/cover and peer assessment (new specification from 2015)

(0)
Students are given a week/ 7 hours to complete the task independently. The task covers the whole of module 1 in context and also develops their practical skills as part of the PAG tasks. The students will need to look up new terms in the textbook and research independently to complete the task successfully. 1. Hand in complete write-ups 2. swap tasks amongst peers and hand out peer assessment sheet. As you go through the PowerPoint, tasks appear that link to the peer assessment sheet. This way the students are covering the content of module 1 whilst also looking at in the context of their peers work and assessing the work. 3. Swap back for students to comment on the peer assessment 4. Finally (if you feel necessary) collect them in to teacher assess I covered the content in a double lesson and students learnt a lot from completing the task (despite a lot of grumbling) Covers OCR Chemistry A Module 1 Practical Skills in Chemistry Experimental design Types of variable Writing a plan Planning an investigation Recording data Manipulating data Evaluating results and drawing conclusions Precision and accuracy
