B13.7 - Inheritance in Action ** FULL LESSON ** AQA GCSE Biology/Trilogy (inc Harry Potter Genetics)

(10)
Complete lesson based on the Simple Inheritance topic of the AQA Biology/Trilogy new specification GCSE course, also known as B13.7 from the Nelson Thornes text books. This lesson contains: Starter BoB’s big five. A recap over the last few lessons in 5 questions that they complete in the back of their books (Hence BoB). There are then the answers on the next slides for students to self or peer mark. This is to encourage memory retention over a series of lessons and has had a great impact in my classroom. Main Introduction to the keywords and then guided through some genetic crosses. Emphasis given to the correct working out that needs to be written down in order to gain ALL the marks. Students are then expected to complete any of the next tasks. If you have iPads in the classroom then I would print out the QR code scanner (See note at bottom) sheet and students can choose the PDFs to load (and save paper) and either complete on the iPads, or in their books. Answers are provided for all three activities. Activity 1 - Harry Potter genetics. Students use information from Harry Potter to get used to the punnet square approach to these tasks. Activity 2 - Moving on from Harry Potter, students have to do more work. There is a lot of repetition here so I would advise students to move on when happy. Answers are again provided. Activity 3 - Exam questions, a series of exam questions to challenge the students, with mark scheme. Plenary Students complete an EBI and WWW for the lesson Bonus The final slide contains an optional task that can be a cover lesson, or just a less teacher focused lesson. NOTE ABOUT QR CODE SHEET - The QR codes on there will NOT work, you will need to upload the PDFs to a location on your schools network and then use a QR code generator website to generate the QR codes.

Using ramps and cars the students plan their investigation using the planning sheet, and then carry out the investigation. This can all be done in one lesson. I then set them the task of writing up the investigation (using the level ladder) as homework, but could be done in a subsequent lesson
Evolution

Evolution

(35)
This is for a 100 minute lesson, but there are two tasks which could be split over two 50 min lessons. The Timeline Poster is one activity and the Darwin text based activity is the second activity. The text may be too textual for low ability or low reading age students, my low reading age group had an LSA and they were ACE!

P13.1 - The Electromagnetic Spectrum ** FULL LESSON ** AQA GCSE Physics/Trilogy

(2)
Complete lesson based on the Electromagnetic Spectrum topic of the AQA Physics/Trilogy new specification GCSE course, also known as P13.1 from the Nelson Thornes text books. This lesson contains: Starter See slide notes for this starter, but a demonstration of one of the non-visible parts of the EM spectrum. This is a demonstration the students can do at home also. Main Self learning task, known as the market place activity. This is an excellent activity to showcase group work, peer learning, peer teaching and cooperation. I have used this activity with all ability groups and find it works brilliantly with all. Low ability groups will need more support, but they will probably gain more from the activity. All resources that you should need are contained within this lesson. Plenary Students either complete an exam question or some short answer questions (all with answers), or both, depending on the ability of your groups and the time you have remaining
