Year 9 Biology Transition Skills Unit - 8 fully resourced lessons

This scheme of work is designed to prepare students for the new science GCSE courses (first exams 2018). It will bridge the gap between key stages 3 and 4 by introducing some of the fundamental concepts in the biology course. The emphasis is on developing numeracy, literacy and practical skills through engaging activities rather than focusing on content which they will learn at GCSE. There are eight lessons, although each one includes a practical activity and can be taught over two lessons. The topics are: 1. Size and scale 2. Surface area and volume 3. Diffusion 4. Respiration 5. Food energy 6. Nervous system 8. Natural Selection The resources include - a scheme of work outlining each lesson and practical activity - PowerPoint presentations for each lesson - editable worksheets to support student learning - technician requirements

Hookes Law - making a forcemeter (differentiated)

Hookes Law - making a forcemeter (differentiated)

In this activity, students use Hooke's Law to make their own forcemeter from a spring. They then plot their results on the line graph (there are two axes available - one provided the scale for weaker students) You will need to prepare 3 mystery objects which students will weigh using their forcemeter. They can use their graph to work out the approximate weights of the objects.

Investigating Friction (for SEN or weaker students)

Investigating Friction (for SEN or weaker students)

This worksheet supports students in carrying out two simple experiments: a) how does the type of surface affect the time taken for a ball to roll down the ramp (eg wood or bubble wrap)? b) how does the height of the ramp affect the time taken for the ball to roll down? There is also support for drawing a bar and line graph of results.
