Geological Time and Earth Evolution

(1)
This resources provides useful images and videos to help stimulate discussion and learning about the evolution of life on earth. Students use the internet to help them construct diagrams of the geological time scale, including the times and names for the geological eras and periods, as well as descriptions of important events of life on Earth.
Balanced Diets

Balanced Diets

(0)
The objective of this lesson is to help students understand what is meant by the term ‘balanced diet’ and how energy requirements vary with activity levels, age and pregnancy. This lesson builds upon prior knowledge that a balanced diet should include appropriate proportions of carbohydrate, protein, lipid, vitamins, minerals, water and dietary fibre. Students begin by critiquing BMI as a indication of healthy body mass before considering how and why energy requirements vary from person to person. The lesson encourages students to consider what happens if they don’t get the right amount of the right nutrients, and includes a possible homework activity, to design a TV advert on behalf of the government to encourage young people to eat a balanced diet.

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.
Series and Parallel Circuits

Series and Parallel Circuits

(0)
This PowerPoint provides a useful visual aid for a lesson on series and parallel circuits. Before the lesson starts, I set up four electrical circuits in the classroom (these are shown on slide 3). Students begin by recapping how they draw electrical diagrams before being introduced to the idea of series and parallel circuits. Students then perform a series of very simple experiments to help them compare current and voltage in series and parallel. After completing the experiments and feeding back their findings to the class, the students complete two fun and easy assessment for learning activities. One is a back-to-back diagram drawing activity and the final activity uses dice and encourages students to reflect on what they have learned.
Pressure in Liquids

Pressure in Liquids

(0)
This resources provides a clear and easy-to-follow introduction to pressure in liquids. The resource is well supported by a simple demonstration of water coming out of three holes in a container, where the holes are spaced out evenly along a vertical line. By the end of the lesson, students should be secure in their understanding that liquid pressure increases as depth increases and the science behind why some objects float whilst others sink.
Earth and Beyond
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Earth and Beyond

(0)
This resource encourages students to look beyond our world and out into the universe. They will investigate its features, the role of gravity, and the vast distances between structures making up the Universe. They will consider what the significance is of star colour and temperature and what is the predicted life cycle of a star. They will research what the scientific understanding is of the origin of the Universe and what evidence supports the Big Bang theory. They could also consider how technology has advanced scientific understanding of the Universe and what will be the impact of emerging projects.
The Phases of the Moon

The Phases of the Moon

(0)
This resource introduces the phrases of the moon and how solar and lunar eclipses form. It is an incredibly useful visual aid and includes a series of questions about eclipses for students to respond to.
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.
The Cell Cycle

Light Microscope

(0)
This PowerPoint resource helps students label and use the light microscope. I usually print off the second slide in advance of the lesson to use as a worksheet for students to complete. The worksheet instructs students to label a light microscope using the information available. The PowerPoint resource includes a quick quiz to test student knowledge and instructions on how to use a light microscope.
Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

(0)
This simple and easy to use PowerPoint resource provides a useful visual stimulus for discussions on energy efficiency and how the loss of energy can be detrimental to the environment. After discussing dissipation of heat energy, I then introduce the practical investigation. Students are provided with two different light bulbs, a ruler, white piece of paper and a thermometer. Students test to see who of the light bulbs causes the greatest increase in temperature in the thermometer. This light bulb gives out the most heat energy and is therefore the least efficient. This result guides students through planning, recording, analysing and evaluating their experiments.
Natural Selection Examples

Natural Selection Examples

(0)
This resource introduces natural selection and three key examples of rapid changes in species brought about by evolution: bacterial resistance to antibiotics, pesticide resistance in insects, and the peppered moth before, during and after the industrial revolution. I use the first slide to introduce the process of natural selection. I then use an incredibly useful resource, available for download from TES on “sticky dogs”, which I get the class to evaluate. I then introduce the peppered moth example, before getting the students to complete the 6 mark past paper question to time. We go through the mark scheme to this question together before I introduce bacterial resistance and pesticide resistance. The students then complete the tasks set on the final slide.
