Cell structure and organelles for observed lesson. Microscopy exercise starter. Nucleus; nucleolus; Smooth and Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum; Golgi Apparatus; Ribosomes; Lysosomes. Students have 5 minutes to learn about one organelle from displays, then present to group. Group collaborate to form holistic mind-map. This is used to individually complete essay question. I have adapted this resource from and excellent upload by jm2450, Please feel free to leave comments.
Describing distribution of sickle cell anaemia in areas where malaria is common. Example to consider codominance and natural selection. Also some past paper questions on evolution, variation and natural selection with mark schemes.
Students collect information from around the room to help them classify ferns, mosses, grasses, conifers and flowering plants. Evaluate the differences between phyla, describe the characteristics. Must also consider four habitats that the environmental factors that plants must adapt to. Could easily be adapted for KS4 with reference to grass / flowering plants as monocotyledons / dicotyledons and Please leave feedback. Just added a starter keyword match up from 7C Environment and Ecological Relationships.
Please leave feedback, any comments are welcome that will help me improve the resources. The lesson plan gives details on how it all pans out. Students given feeding relationships and have to use keywords and concepts to build food webs. Some of the feeding relationships might need some attention but I’ll let you work that out, there aren’t many mistakes. Ecology. Feeding relationships. Interdependence. Consumer. Secondary. Primary. Herbivore. Carnivore. Inquiry based
CIE IGCSE specific revision quiz. This is an excellent template, thanks to the TESer that uploaded it. Circulatory system, blood vessels, transport in plants, lymphatic system. Please leave feedback, my Y11s said it was too difficult.
Short practical I made as part of a circus activity for Science Week. Students complete enzyme catalysed hydrogen peroxide decomposition. 2H2O2 --> 2H2O + O2. Students also completed practical using KI as the catalyst. Could be useful for showing the action of enzymes as catalyst. Could adapt to use potato or leaves as source of catalase. Please leave feedback.
Please leave feedback, any comments for improvements are very welcome. Read the lesson plan for instructions. Its pretty straightforward. Print out the displays, stick 'em up and get the students to do the rest. Present at the end. Digestion. Enzymes. Amylase. Protease. Lipase. Alimentary Canal. Cheers!
I can take no credit for these keyword sheets, they are the product of my fantastic Teaching Assistants. However, I do think they are wonderful teaching resources for Chinese EAL learners or even Chinese GCSE students. I will continue to add more as I am able to collect them from my Teaching Assistants.

Reproduction in angiosperms. WJEC A2 Biology. Cross and self-pollination. Receptacle, calyx, sepal, corolla, petal, stamen, filament, anther, carpel, ovary, ovule style and stigma. Generalised structure of flowers to compare wind and insect pollinated. I have used and adapted some excellent resources from TES uploaders, thank you for your help. \n\nHave a go and please leave comments.
Please leave feedback, any comments to improve the lesson are very welcome. This works in tandem with Radiation Lab that can be downloaded for free. Students will need a laptop/PC. Please read the Lesson Plan for instructions. Its pretty straightforward.
Please leave feedback, I'd like to improve the booklet so any comments are welcome. Booklet to cover Edexcel IGCSE Biology spec. You will need to use the the Channel 4 'Sperm Race' game and the University of Utah 'Cloning Mini' game. I have used some resources from TES and I hope I have not offended anyone by borrowing and changing your ideas, I must have thought they were great to use them if that&'s any consolation.
Please leave feedback, any comments to improve the lesson are very welcome. This is a lesson for use with (the excellent) Radiation Lab software that can be downloaded, Please read the lesson plan for instructions. The main outcomes of the lesson are based on data handling rather than radioactivity but it could be adapted.
