The Water Cycle

The Water Cycle

(0)
This resource introduces the water cycle, the key terms relating to the water cycle, and how polluted water effects the water cycle. The resource includes activities for the students to complete, for example students describe the journey of a water molecule from a river high in the mountains, through the atmosphere and eventually back to the starting point. The resource also includes an experiment that students could complete to investigating the effect of pollution (acid rain) on seed germination.
The Cell Cycle

The Cell Cycle

(0)
This resources goes step-by-step through the stages of the cells cycle. It provides useful visual aids for explanations as well as short descriptions about what happens at each stage.
DNA Structure

DNA Structure

(0)
This PowerPoint resource provides a useful visual aid for a lesson on the discovery and structure of DNA. It includes activities, questions and video links. I usually begin the lesson by inviting students to write down everything they already know about DNA in a black pen. I then introduce Watson and Crick, and the structure of DNA, using all the key terms on the slide. I then give my students minutes to answer the 6 mark question on the structure of DNA. Students then self-mark their answer using the mark scheme included in the PowerPoint, and show me on their fingers how many marks out of 6 they achieved for the question. If students have access to their own laptops I then invite students to watch a few of the video links that go into slightly greater detail about the structure of DNA. At the end of the lesson I ask the students to return to the list they made at the beginning of the lesson about everything they already knew about DNA. I invite the students to spend a couple of minutes adding to their list in a green pen with everything they now know about DNA.
Leaf Structure and Function

Leaf Structure and Function

(0)
This creative and easy-to-use resource introduces leaf structure and function. It begins with a discussion about adaptions and the structures that make leaves specially adapted for their function. It includes cross-sectional diagrams through the leaf for students to label, before inviting students to design an experiment to investigate whether plants lose more water from the upper or lower leaf surface. It includes a writing frame to help support students as they design, carry out and evaluate their experiments, as well as a true or false quiz to finish.
Photosynthesis experiments

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 Responses - Controlling Plant Growth

Plant Responses - Controlling Plant Growth

(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 experimental evidence for the role of gibberllin in the control of stem elongation and seed germination. 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.

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.
Lung Capacity and Breathing

Lung Capacity and Breathing

(1)
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.
Mitosis and Meiosis

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.
The Menstrual Cycle

The Menstrual Cycle

(1)
This resource introduces the menstrual cycle and the main hormones involved in regulating the cycle. It includes a fun snakes-and-ladders game to help students learn more about what happens at each stage of the cycle and encourages students to create their own summary resource.
Anaerobic Respiration

Anaerobic Respiration

(0)
This resource introduces anaerobic respiration and compares aerobic and anaerobic respiration. The lesson begins an activity comparing the equations for aerobic and anaerobic respiration, it then explains why people get stitches and pant heavily after exercise. It considers the advantages and disadvantages of anaerobic respiration and how it can be used commercially. The resource includes past paper questions and answers, as well as a graph for students to describe and explain.
