Photosynthesis/Respiration Card Sort

Photosynthesis/Respiration Card Sort

The resource can be printed off onto card and cut out either before or during lesson time. It can be used as a simple starter/summary activity and is useful to tease out students' understanding of both photosynthesis and respiration and to highlight the relationship between the two processes - that is that one is locking energy into a glucose molecule, whilst the other releases it for use.

GCSE - Inheritance & Family Trees - Polydactyly

GCSE - Inheritance & Family Trees - Polydactyly

This sheet and PowerPoint introduce family trees and reinforces work on monohybrid inheritance and punnet squares. The sheet includes interpretation and completion of a family tree alongside some punnet squares and reasoning questions. The Powerpoint of only 4 slides acts as an initial stimulus but also shows the solution to the family tree.

A level Biology - Active Transport: The Sodium-Potassium Pump

A level Biology - Active Transport: The Sodium-Potassium Pump

This PowerPoint is a step-by-step, annotated accounting of the working of the sodium potassium pump. Simple animations show the interactions of pump, ATP, ADP, sodium ions and potassium ions. Also included is a scaffolded notesheet including part-drawn diagrams that students can quickly complete as they learn about the process. Please note: The preview thumbnails have unfortunately created some graphical glitches/artefacts that don't appear in the actual slides.

Respiration - The Electron Transport Chain (Oxidative Phosphorylation for A-level)

Respiration - The Electron Transport Chain (Oxidative Phosphorylation for A-level)

This double-sided worksheet covers the electron transport chain in detail. The first side is a blank diagram for students to annotate, whilst the second consists of several questions to both test and reinforce understanding. The included PowerPoint serves as a mark-scheme for the sheet but also includes a step-be-step description of the happenings in the electron transport chain and could easily double as a teaching resource.

Biology A Level - Muscles - Sliding Filament Theory Cut & Stick Activity

Biology A Level - Muscles - Sliding Filament Theory Cut & Stick Activity

This resource consists of a two page worksheet. The first is a grid and the second is the tiles that should be cut out and stuck on the former to complete it. Cut and stick activities can be unpopular - especially at A-level - but my students have all agreed this is a great summary activity and a fantastic resource for later revision. The finished result is a single sided piece that works through the entire cycle of a single myosin head power stroke.

Succession: Sand Dunes cut and stick (A level resource)

Succession: Sand Dunes cut and stick (A level resource)

The resource consists of a page of tiles and a grid for sticking them on to which links seral stage to environmental conditions and the sand dune topography. An animated markscheme (PowerPoint) is also included which can be projected to help students with the task and/or used to aid discussion.

KS3 Physics - Light (6-lesson resource pack)

KS3 Physics - Light (6-lesson resource pack)

The pack contains materials for six lessons consisting of: 4 PowerPoints, 5 Worksheets, 2 Practical Sheets and markschemes. PowerPoints include interactive elements and contain some more detailed content for more able classes that can be used as needed. Please leave reviews if you find my resources helpful.

Reaction Times Lesson Resources (GCSE Practical) - PowerPoint, Practical Sheet and more.

Reaction Times Lesson Resources (GCSE Practical) - PowerPoint, Practical Sheet and more.

The resource is targeted at a GCSE required practical on the AQA scheme of work. Contents include a PowerPoint of 9 slides, a foundation and higher level practical worksheet (differentiated around drawing the results table), a purpose made excel spreadsheet for recording class data for detailed analysis and a printable template you can stick on a metre rule to measure reaction time. The PowerPoint includes a stimulus activity that recaps the nervous pathway and 3 slides outlining animal reaction times/speeds of response for comparison/stimulation of interest. The practical sheet includes full instructions for students and some summary questions. The excel spreadsheet is locked for editing aside from an area for students to complete in a central location (ie- projected onto the whiteboard) and will draw a graph complete with range bars based on average class data. The graph can be printed after the practical as required to allow more detailed analysis of class results.

The Chloroplast (Photosynthesis) - PowerPoint and Worksheet (A-Level)

The Chloroplast (Photosynthesis) - PowerPoint and Worksheet (A-Level)

This PowerPoint of 8 slides outlines the structure of the chloroplast and examines the smaller structures within. The accompanying work/note-sheet allows students to record the information in a visually engaging way. This is aimed at A-level students (16 to 18 years old) and would serve as an excellent activity as part of an introduction to photosynthesis or in partnership with a chlorophyll chromatography practical activity.

Stimulus to Response - cut and stick activity.

Stimulus to Response - cut and stick activity.

This cut and stick worksheet challenges students to link a stimulus, via its associated receptor and effector with a response. Includes - Worksheet/grid, Tiles to cut out and stick on the grid, Animated PowerPoint which allows marking/stimulus.

Respiration Overview Sheet (A level resource)

Respiration Overview Sheet (A level resource)

These two sheets - one with blanks for students to fill in, the other complete but with space for annotation - are best printed at A3 size and summarise cellular respiration in a clear diagrammatic flow diagram. Students follow the progression of glucose through the entire of cellular respiration. The sheet summarises Glycolysis, Link Reaction, Kreb's Cycle, the electron transport chain and also anaerobic respiration whilst clearly linking these together in one continuous inter-linked diagram.

Photosynthesis Overview Sheet (A level Resource)

Photosynthesis Overview Sheet (A level Resource)

This sheet, printed at A3 provides a full summary of both the Light Dependent and Light Independent reactions of photosynthesis presented as a detailed flow chart. There is room for annotation as students revise/as you talk through the processes.

KS3 Physics Lesson Resources - Light - Refraction (Lessons 4&5)

KS3 Physics Lesson Resources - Light - Refraction (Lessons 4&5)

The resource consists of a 16 slide PowerPoint, a short summary worksheet, and practical task worksheet. The PowerPoint details learning objectives and a starter/stimulus activity for students before diverging into four separate sections which can be navigated from the central menu. The four sections deal with: Explaining Refraction; Ray Diagrams; Lenses; and Refraction in real life. Each section consists of animated slides and diagrams which help explain all the necessary content with a few optional extras for those more capable classes. The summary sheet should serve to help students reflect on and revise the taught concepts and ties in with the PowerPoint. The Practical Worksheet talks students through a series of experiments using rayboxes and prisms/lenses (Specifically rectangular prisms and converse lens prisms - though an extension activity allows for further experimentation) and has an open-ended extension activity for more able students.

A Level Biology - Protein Structure - Learning Leaders Activity

A Level Biology - Protein Structure - Learning Leaders Activity

The resource consists of a set of 4 source sheets (one for each level of protein structure) and a summary sheet for students to complete collaboratively. Suggested Lesson Plan: Sort class into 4 groups and give each group access to a few copies of one of the source sheets (potentially on different colours of card with numbers on the back as pictured). Give them a post-it note and allow 6 minutes (adjust as necessary based on your own judgement) to summarise the information on their respective source sheet. Do note the primary and quarternary source sheets are conceptually easier so could be used for differentiation. Then take in the source sheets and ask students to self sort into groups of four consisting of a person from each of the four original groups and help each other complete the note sheet. You can use time intervals to keep this moving on apace. Combined with past paper questions to aid afl this was part of an outstanding lesson when observed.
