Biodiversity AQA KS3 (Deluxe lesson)

(1)
This is a collection of resources on Biodiversity for KeyStage Three (KS3) Science and Biology teachers (students aged 11-14). It is based on the new KS3 AQA Science specification. It aims to teach students the meaning of biodiversity, the importance of biodiversity, how lack of biodiversity can impact ecosystems and humans and factors that reduce biodiversity. The lesson is designed to be clear, colourful and engaging and to help students to think about issues for themselves. The resources are designed for one lesson but are pick and mix in that there is too much in the PowerPoint affording you choice of what you teach. Resources are as follows: Lesson PowerPoint with notes on slides on how to use. Differentiated work sheets to accompany this. Differentiated definition sheets Home study (PPT and PDF) including a YouTube link to a voice-over explaining how to do the home study. Mix and match home study (PPT and PDF). Also with a YouTube link. Notes on the resources Study Stack questions and slide to aid student revision/use in class as a plenary. The lesson PowerPoint covers: The definition of Biodiversity Biodiverse versus non-biodiverse ecosystems (ecosystem is defined) Biodiversity within a species Interdependence YouTube links to videos Looking at food webs and the effect of different species dying out Human dependence on biodiversity Human effects on biodiversity. In addition, the PowerPoints come in light and dark versions to suit preferences/classroom situations. The differentiated work sheets tie in with the PowerPoint content and are greyscale for printing

** KS3 Embroidery Stitch Instructions** I developed this when I was teaching KS3 Art so that students could get on with embroidering their batik independently. The instructions worked well. I printed and laminated them for use in class. All the drawings are my own and the resource is saved in PDF format because I developed it in a drawing programme not accepted here. If you want anything changed then please let me know.

KS3 AQA Drawing Plant and Animal Cells

(0)
Cells - Biological Drawing (AQA KS3). Flipped Learning Lesson for students aged 11-14. This was developed to ground good biological drawing skills in students in KS3. The reason I made this lesson is that I also teach Art and Technology I know that in these subjects students are taught completely different drawing skills to those used in science. I realised that there could be confusion when students come to draw in science which is why I created this lesson. The lesson worked really well. I made a video for YouTube showing students how to draw biological drawings. Students then watched this for home study before the lesson. This worked very well indeed. The lesson starter follows up and builds on this. Students then learn the differences between plant and animal cells and practice drawing them using simple images onscreen before they draw from a microscope. This gets them into good practice from the start. The guidance on biological drawing is based on the AQA A-level guidance. The lesson has been designed so that Science Teachers that are teaching out of their Science specialism can easily teach this. The notes below the slides give lots of information for these teachers. Lesson Objectives: To observe and identify the difference between plant and animal cells. To draw and label an animal cell and a plant cell. Resources Flipped learning video on how to do biological drawings. The link is in the notes on resources. Original PowerPoint for this video Lesson PowerPoint, with clear notes on each slide. A light and dark version of this presentation is provided. Success criteria for biological drawing A ‘really bad drawing’ to critique as a starter Worksheet on plant and animal cells Study Stack resources (link provided) for plenary or revision use. Notes on the resources.

A shading exercise to encourage pupils to look carefully and draw what they see. They start by filling in the missing section of a graduated square and then move on to copying more complex shapes into their corresponding outlines. This can be used in class or at home and is a very useful aid in improving pencil shading and getting pupils to really study what they are drawing.
