Christmas Quiz for use within Science lessons towards the end of term. There are 13 Quiz rounds to choose from (I usually have the folder open on the board and let one team at a time choose which round we do).
There is a combination of science specific rounds, loosely based science rounds and nothing to do with science rounds.

NEW ROUNDS ADDED FOR 2018 AND MORE TO BE ADDED SOON
End of Year quiz for use within Science lessons towards the end of term. There are 17 Quiz rounds to choose from (I usually have the folder open on the board and let one team at a time choose which round we do).
There are several science based rounds (including CB1-6 specific questions from the Edexcel combined science GCSE that I’m sure fits with other schemes), as well as some generic rounds.
CC10a lesson from the new Edexcel combined science GCSE (9-1) all about electrolysis.

CB9b lesson from the new Edexcel combined Science GCSE (9-1) all about abiotic factors and communities.
Lesson includes what affects where organisms can live, what abiotic factors are, distribution of organisms, investigation into woodlice and abiotic factors, adaptations of organisms, how water/temp/light affect distribution and pollution. A second lesson focusing on the CB9b core practical is also included.

CB7b Hormonal control of metabolic rate
CB7c The menstrual cycle
CB7d Hormones and the menstrual cycle
CB7e Control of blood glucose
CB7f Type 2 diabetes
CC11c lesson from the new Edexcel combined science GCSE (9-1) looking at oxidation and reduction.
The lesson includes oxidation, reduction, redox reactions, metal extraction, half equations, corrosion and rusting.
CC3b lesson from the new Edexcel combined science GCSE (9-1) all about atomic number and mass number.
The lesson includes Rutherfords experiment, atomic number and mass number.
One of the tasks within the lesson requires the use of worksheets from the ActiveTeach but could be substituted with other available worksheets

CB9e lesson from the new Edexcel combined science GCSE (9-1) all about biodiversity and humans.
Lesson includes recap of what biodiversity is, what fish farming is, disadvantages/advantages of fish farming, introducing species and eutrophication.
CB2 section of the new Edexcel Science GCSE, covering:
CB2b Growth in Animals
CB2c Growth in Plants
CB2d Stem Cells
CB2e The Nervous System
CB2f Neurotransmission Speeds
*All lessons can be found separately in my shop*
CC5b lesson for the new Edexcel Science GCSE, covering ionic lattices.
The lesson includes a recap of ionic bonding, what ionic lattices are, the shapes formed, ionic formulae, the crossover method and polyatomic ions.
A series of lessons looking at climate change and global warming.
Lesson 1: Causes- what global warming is, what greenhouse gases are, are humans the cause, deforestation and fossil fuels.
Lesson 2: Effects- data about climate change, sea level rise, ocean acidification, warming oceans, shrinking ice sheets, extreme weather events, effects on health and a graph drawing exercise.
Lesson 3: Solutions- what can governments do, the Paris agreement, what businesses can do and renewable energy.
Lesson 4: Solutions- what individuals can do to combat climate change.
There are lots of exercises and information included in each lesson and it could easily be condensed down into fewer lessons by excluding some tasks. Likewise some of the tasks could be stretched out across several lesson depending upon the time you have.
All worksheets/resources needed are within the PowerPoint as hidden slides.
Lesson on Maths skills needed for the new Combined Science GCSE (9-1) with a focus on Biology content, although many of the skills are needed across all three Sciences.
The lesson is intended to be a circus activity with all of the topics around the room (information sheet and exam question sheet for each that I printed back to back) for students to move around between and then mark at the end of the lesson. It could easily be done as a teacher lead lesson as well though and even slotted into other lessons as needed.
The maths skills included are:
Calculating the Mean
Mode & Median
Calculating Percentage Changes
Ratios & Fractions
Cardiac Output Equation
Estimating Population Size Equation
There is an information sheet and exam question sheet for each, as well as answers to all the questions.
