Heat Transfers: Conduction, Convection, Radiation

Heat Transfers: Conduction, Convection, Radiation

(0)
This simple to use and engaging resource provides a useful framework for a lesson on conduction, convection and radiation. Depending on how much time is available to you, I like to demonstrate conduction through particles by inviting my students to stand next to each other, shoulder to shoulder, vibrating slowly. I then “transfer energy” to one of the students, invting them to vibrate faster, knocking the students (particles) on either side of them, transferring the energy on. To help demonstrate convection, I use the potassium permanganate practical. I usually allow the students to carry out a practical on radiation during the following lesson.
Transcription and Translation Step-by-Step

Transcription and Translation Step-by-Step

(0)
This provides a useful visual resource, with written summaries, of the main stages in transcription and translation. I use it with my lower ability students who benefit from visual stimuli, as it goes through the processes step by step.
Mitosis and the Cell Cycle

Mitosis and the Cell Cycle

(0)
This resource, provides an easy to use, simple visual for an introductory lesson on mitosis and the cell cycle. The resources includes a couple of useful links to videos as well as a true false quiz on the topic.
Lung Capacity and Breathing

Lung Capacity and Breathing

(0)
This engaging and easy to use resource provides a useful visual aid for introducing the changes that occur in lungs during during inhalation and exhalation, how lung volume can be measured and the factors that effect it. If you have a bell jar model of the lungs available to you, then the lesson is supported well with a demonstration.
Efficiency of Biomass Transfer

Efficiency of Biomass Transfer

(0)
This resource covers pyramids of biomass and calculating the efficiency of biomass transfer. It explains how pyramids of biomass are draw, why biomass decreases at each topic level, and the equation for calculating the efficiency of biomass transfer.
Mutations

Mutations

(0)
This resource begins with a useful visual to introduce the topic of mutations and initiate discussion on point mutations. Students are then invited to watch two videos (links provided) before researching and answering a series of questions about mutations. I usually allow 20 minutes for the students to answer the questions on the worksheet, before going through the answers as a class (using the PowerPoint slides). If there is time, I then explain how mutations in bacteria enable them to become resistant to antibiotics.
Density

Density

(0)
This fun, creative and easy-to-use resource introduces the equation for density and includes practice questions for students to answer. It also includes a useful visual to help students understand why some objects float whilst others sink and invites students to carry out their own research on Archimedes.
Enzymes

Enzymes

(0)
This resources provides a fun and colourful introduction to enzymes. It is both a useful visual aid and includes past paper questions for students to answer. The resource defines enzymes as biological catalysts, made of protein, and breaks this definition down so that it is easy to understand. It introduces the lock and key theory as well as denaturation.
Pure and Impure
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Pure and Impure

(0)
This resource explains the difference between pure and impure substances, challenges students to compare graphs of pure and impure substances, and explains what is happening at a particle level during heating. Students then complete a simple practical where they measure the temperature of a substance as they heat it and then use a graph of their results to conclude whether or not the substance was pure or impure.
Darwin, Wallace and the theory of evolution
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Darwin, Wallace and the theory of evolution

(0)
This resource introduces the Darwin and Wallace, their research and the theory of evolution. Included within the resource are a few links to videos that I find useful for introducing the theory and also opens discussion on the relationship between the two scientists. It invites students to consider whether Darwin cheated Wallace out of his rightful place in history, a question that often leads to great class discussions.
Physical and Chemical Changes
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Physical and Chemical Changes

(0)
This resource provides an easy to use, simple and useful introduction to the differences between physical and chemical changes. The first slide can be used as a starter, to initiate discussion and inspire students to offer up ideas about the differences between physical and chemical changes. The second and third slides provide a useful visual that can be used to help explain the differences between physical and chemical changes. The resource also includes some fun, quick quizzes to help assess the class’s understanding of the differences between physical and chemical changes.
Negative Feedback

Negative Feedback

(0)
This resource introduces negative feedback in the context of the endocrine system, using the example of thyroxine and the thyroid gland.
The Structure and Function of the Kidneys
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

The Structure and Function of the Kidneys

(0)
This resources covers the structure and function of the kidney. It includes information about ultrafiltration and selective reabsorption, a series of activities for students to complete, useful diagrams and links to animations on the topic. It also covers how the volume of urine produced is controlled through negative feedback.
Standard Form
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Standard Form

(0)
This resource introduces standard form, what it is and why it is useful. It includes a useful link to an animation on the topic, and questions with answers to give students practice on writing numbers in standard form.
Photosynthesis experiments
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Photosynthesis experiments

(0)
This resource introduces a series of experiments relating to the reactants and products of photosynthesis. The experiments provide evidence that carbon dioxide, chlorophyll and sunlight are required for photosynthesis to occur, and that oxygen and glucose are produced.
Plant and Animal Cells
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Plant and Animal Cells

(0)
This resources revises the difference between plant and animal cells, introduces the main cell organelles, their structure and function, as well as the main differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.

Mitosis and Meiosis

(0)
This resource provides a useful visual aid for introducing and comparing the processes of meiosis and mitosis. The resource includes links to videos on the topic, questions for students to answer, and a true false quiz. One of the tasks instructs students to create a video, poster, or model on mitosis or meiosis. This activity could either be completed during lessons or as a homework.
