Gravitational Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy

(0)
This lesson begins with a ‘graph description’ activity and opportunity for students to make scientific predictions. Included in the first couple of slides are links to useful video resources for the topic. There is then an option of two different practical investigations. The first invites students to design an experiment testing how the gradient of a ramp effects the speed of the car, whilst the second asks how the height you drop the ball from effect the height of the bounce.
Animal Responses - Mammalian Nervous System and The Brain

Animal Responses - Mammalian Nervous System and The Brain

(0)
This high quality and easy-to-use resource on ‘animal responses’ is specifically designed for students studying OCR A-Level Biology. It includes information about the organisation of the mammalian nervous system, the structure of the human brain and the function of its parts. Students should begin by watching my video tutorials on this topic, which are freely available via my YouTube channel: BiologyWithNewhouse. I have included a link to the video tutorials in the activity sheet. Students should then use information from the video tutorials 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.

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.
Energy, Food and Fuels

Energy, Food and Fuels

(0)
This resource provides a useful visual aid set of activities for the ‘energy in food’ or ‘fuel is fuel’ topic. It initiates important discussions about healthy diets, challenges students to use their mathematical skills and enables students to make links between their learning in maths, biology and physics. Students carry out a series of caluclations, including a calculation to see how much of different food types they need to consume to gain their daily recommended amounts of energy.
Diffusion

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.
Heart Structure and Heart Dissection
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Heart Structure and Heart Dissection

(0)
This resource introduces the structure of the heart and double circulatory system. The second slide can be used both to introduce the different parts of the heart or as an assessment-for-learning activity at the end of the lesson. The third slide includes a worksheet that can be printed off and handed out to the students, for them to complete before the heart dissection. I usually project the fourth slide during the heart dissection to help students identify the different parts of the heart as they carry out their dissections. If there is time at the end of the lesson, I introduce the double circulatory system via an active learning activity, where students circulate around the classroom, holding either blue or red counters to represent deoxygenated and oxygenated red blood cells.
