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.
Darwin, Wallace and the theory of evolution

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.
Plant Responses - Photoperiodism

Plant Responses - Photoperiodism

(0)
This high quality and easy-to-use resource on ‘plant responses to the environment’ is specifically designed for students studying OCR A-Level Biology. It includes information about photoperiodism and phytochromes in plants. Students should begin by watching my video tutorial on this topic, which is freely available via my YouTube channel: BiologyWithNewhouse. I have included a link to the video tutorial in the activity sheet. Students should then use information from the video tutorial and the PowerPoint slides to help them complete the activity sheet. This can be done entirely independently, as a flip-learning exercise, or with teacher support.
Transcription and Translation

Transcription and Translation

(0)
This resource begins with a starter slight, that encourages students to revise their knowledge of DNA structure. The second slide includes two useful visual aids to help you explain the processes of transcription and translation. The third slide includes three useful links to videos on protein synthesis and invites students to create their own summary resource on the topic. This activity can be set for homework or can fill a full lesson. Depending on the ability of my class, I then present students with the Genetic Code diagram that shows which codons code for which amino acids and ask them to explain what it shows. After comparing DNA and RNA using the venn diagramm on slide 5, students then complete the quick quiz on slide 6 and finally the two past paper questions on protein synthesis.

Changes of State

(0)
This fun, creative and easy to use resource provides a great framework for an introductory lesson on the changes of state. The starter tests prior knowledge about the properties of solids, liquids and gases, and the particle model of matter. The lesson introduces a series of key terms, a graph drawing activity as well as an opportunity for students to complete a piece of extended writing or story board.
Cameras and the Eye

Cameras and the Eye

(0)
This resource provides an easy-to-use visual aid and activities on the structure of the eye and structure of the camera. It explains how the eye works and how the pinhole camera works, before challenging students to answer the 6 mark question “Compare the eye and the camera”. The resource includes a mark scheme for this question as well as additional questions that could be answered through investigations with a pinhole camera.
Experiment Write Up Scaffold

Experiment Write Up Scaffold

(0)
The following resource provides a helpful scaffold for students when designing, completing, recording, analysing and evaluating science experiments. I change the image and question on the first slide, depending on the experiment I plan on carrying out with my class. The second and third slides remain the same every time. This resource is adaptable, easy to use, and appropriate for KS3 and KS4 students.

Plant Responses: Investigating Tropisms

(0)
This high quality and easy-to-use resource on ‘plant responses to the environment’ is specifically designed for students studying OCR A-Level Biology. It includes information about the practical investigations carried out into the effect of plant hormones on growth, the action of auxin, and apical dominance. Students should begin by watching my video tutorial on this topic, which is freely available via my YouTube channel: BiologyWithNewhouse. I have included a link to the video tutorial in the activity sheet. Students should then use information from the video tutorial and the PowerPoint slides to help them complete the activity sheet. This can be done entirely independently, as a flip-learning exercise, or with teacher support.
