Transpiration

Transpiration

This is an outstanding resource created from the Edexcel International GCSE 2009 in Science (Double Award) (4SC0) and Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 Certificate in Science (KSC0). This resource draws in visual presentation slides whilst maintaining its informational content. An observation of the lesson from the University of Hertfordshire deemed this lesson as outstanding. The hook/starter draws upon the pupils inquisitiveness to learn by showing them an image of wet cloths hanging on a washing line. Pupils are asked to discuss under what conditions would these clothes dry quicker than normal. The level descriptors/outcomes will then be discussed with the class which they can refer back to through out the period of the lesson to monitor their own progress. This lesson is hands on immediately as pupils should be able to prepare a stick of celery (with leaves) and rest this in a beak of blue dye. This can be placed at the side of the lab to return to later. Secondly, the pupils will then prepare a section of plant which includes a root system as well as leaves (spider plant) and place this in a boiling tube. The roots will be covered with water and then a small layer of oil should be placed on top of this. Therefore the only pathway for the water is through the plant. These plants will be placed in 4 conditions: in direct sunlight, the shade, under a heat lamp, and in front of a fan. Pupils are then handed the attached worksheet which has been adapted from an a-level resource. The presentation and the handout go hand in hand. The sections of the worksheet are number 1 to 12. These sections tell the story of transpiration through many different mini-activities, mini-plenary's, practice exam questions, practicals and demonstrations. The sections focus on the root system including root hair cells, the function and structure of the xylem, the structure and function of the leaves, concluding with the factors that effect transpiration. The lesson is concluded by collecting in the data from the plants in the 4 different conditions. Plants should have bee weighed on a balance before, and the after the period of time. A noticeable difference in mass should be detectable between different conditions.

Pupils are given side sizes and asked to determine whats the difference. The level descriptors are shown and discussed with the class. These will be displayed consistently throughout the lesson for pupils to refer back to as a gauge of their own progress. A recap of previous lessons (Acids and metals, solubility) is covered as this flows very nicely into the content of the lesson. Pupils asked to consider how all these chemical reactions take place. The idea of collisions is covered and a demonstration of burning paper puts this concept into perspective for pupils. Animations of these collisions are also provided in the presentation for further clarity. Activation energy is illustrated using real like examples. The 4 factors that need to be covered for effecting rate of reaction are broken down into a 4 phase practical activity. A table will be provided for pupils to fill out during the subsequent practicals. Phase 1: Concentration. Pupils are told how concentration effects rate of reaction. This is illustrated by a whole class kinaesthetic activity. A acid demonstration is also shown to show scientific perspective. Phase 2: Temperature. Pupils told how temperature effects rate of reaction. Pupils to oxidise magnesium over a Bunsen flame. Phase 3: Catalysts. Pupils told how the presence of catalysts effect rate of reaction. Pupils to create miniature versions of elephants toothpaste. Phase 4: Surface Area. Pupils told how surface area effects rate of reaction. Pupils to react different size marble chips with acid.

Gas Exchange/Effects of Exercise

Gas Exchange/Effects of Exercise

This is an outstanding resource that is created based on the Edexcel International GCSE 2009 in Science (Double Award) (4SC0) and Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 Certificate in Science (KSC0) and focuses of the topic of Gas Exchange and the effects of exercise on gas exchange. The hook is an image of a cross section of the lung. Pupils are to establish this and relate this image to the title on the board. The lungs are the organ for gas exchange. The pupils are then shown a second image of a tennis court and asked how this further relates. The level descriptors/outcomes are then discussed with the pupils. These are also shown throughout the lesson to consistently challenge and stretch, these are also used as a gauge of progress. Pupils are given a cut out of the thorax and asked to glue it in the middle of a double page spread. The thorax is then covered one structure at a time until the pupils have a fully labelled diagram. The functions of these structures are then covered one at a time, pupils are to produce a fully labelled and annotate diagram of the thorax. The structure, function and adaptation of the alveoli are then covered. Pupils are asked to draw and label a diagram of the alveoli. This background content is then put to practice by conducting 3 different praticals: Practical 1: Effect of exercise on breathing rate Practical 2: Effect of exercise on pulse and blood oxygen Practical 3: Effect of exercise on peak flow Each practical is carried out. Guidance sheets are available. Pupils are to collate results and to evaluate as a class relating back to gas exchange. Plenary: Smoking machine. The smoking machine will smoke a cigarette. pupils will smell, touch and view what substances are collected in the cotton wool and asked to go away and research the biological consequences of smoking on gas exchange.

Solubility

This is an outstanding resource that is created based on the Edexcel International GCSE 2009 in Science (Double Award) (4SC0) and Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 Certificate in Science (KSC0) and focuses of the topic of solubility. The hook for this lesson is the teacher stood at the front of the class with a beaker of water and a cup of salt. Teacher to ask pupils what happens when the salt is mixed with the water? Why does this happen? The level descriptors/learning outcomes are then discussed with the students and displayed throughout the consistently challenge and stretch pupils. Pupils and teacher can also use these to gauge progress throughout the lesson. After the discussion following the hook the pupils are told the definition of solubility. Pupils are asked to draw the 'general rules' of solubility table. Table can be given to those who work slow. Links with prior lessons are made by drawing pupils attention to the section of the table that states all nitrate and most chlorides are soluble, which is why they are used within lessons. For those who struggle to make this connection then pupils then the class are to carry out a practical where they are to make a nitrate, chloride and sulfate and determine they are all soluble salts. Students then told how to use these soluble salts to make insoluble salts. Students then given a exercise sheet where by they simple have to follow the instructions and create the insoluble salt and determine what the salt is by looking at the table drawn earlier. Plenary: how do we make insoluble salts? Exam questions are provided from Edexcel as practice for those who can do them during the lesson or as a class homework.
