Plant and Animal Cell Revision Game

(0)
Plant and Animal Cells Spin Wheel Revision Resource This resource encompasses 12 key questions from the cell unit unit. These are questions selected as they occur regularly and are classically challenging for students to answer. The resource is based around plant and animal cell components, component functions and locations in the cell. Example questions from the spin wheel resource: Which cell components are specific to only plant cells? Which cell component is linked to respiration? What is the role of the nucleus? Also included in the resource is a full answer set. There is also an instructions sheet, with helpful guidance on using the spin wheel as a revision tool, student answer sheet and a ‘tick and repeat sheet’. This encourages the student to revisit the spin wheel to revise the key questions until they reach the ‘know it’ level. Very simple preparation: Print the sheets (set up in A4 PDF). The students can then cut out the pin wheel for themselves and push a pen or pencil through the middle for the wheel to spin around. I found clamp stands to be a useful alternative.

This great Harry Potter STEM project is aimed at middle school and high school ages! There are 4 key activities with their own resources: -Designing magical creatures The only equipment required is colouring pencils and pens. This draws on the student’s knowledge of adaptation and habitats, as each creature must suit specific conditions. Also included within this activity is a set of task cards where students have to state how a mandrake is adapted to it’s life in the Hogwart’s potting sheds. -Testing mystical flames This is essentially a flame test practical where students spray compounds into the flame (a bunsen burner would be required for this practical- or a youtube clip of flame tests would suffice). Task cards and multiple choice questions included. -Disappearing X on the marauder’s map This practical revolves around a simple lab practical using standard school lab chemicals. A printable map is included and students place a flask over the ‘X’ on the map. When the solution changes from clear to cloudy, magically the ‘X’ disappears. Task cards included. -Constructing a dragon’s lair All that’s required for this practical is cocktail sticks and jelly beans. Students must construct a suitable lair and the teacher gets to be the judge. A planning sheet is included too. Nice and simple! Finally there is a teacher notes section and a final puzzle is included as an extension task for early finishers. This project has had rave reviews off teachers I have worked with and my class have said it’s their favourite project yet! Please leave your opinions.
