Environment, Habitat and Adaptations - KS3 Biology

Environment, Habitat and Adaptations - KS3 Biology

Lesson teaching KS3 Biology; Interactions and Inter dependencies - how organisms affect, and are affected by, their environment, including the accumulation of toxic materials. Includes pupil discussion exercises on 'what is an environment, habitat and adaptation?' along with an activity whereby you can transform your classroom into different habitats. Group the animal fact cards into Ocean, Desert, Rainforest and Arctic and place these onto different tables. Pupils then go around the classroom investigating the habitat, the organisms that live there and their adaptations. If used please provide feedback to direct future resources. Thanks

Acids & Alkalis - Making an Indicator

Acids & Alkalis - Making an Indicator

PPT for the teaching of how to make an indicator to test pH. Pupils use workcards to carry out an experiment involving heating red cabbage to produce an indicator. Involves practical skills such as use of Bunsen, filtering and testing pH. Included is a practical workcard for the pupils to guide them through the practical. The 'pH scale' PPT is to be given to pupils for them to reference - note that the colour changes are different for this indicator compared to Universal Indicator.
