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.
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.
Stem Cells and Designer Babies

Stem Cells and Designer Babies

(0)
This resource begins by introducing stem cells and their uses, before inviting students to write a clearly balanced account of the arguments surrounding the use of stem cells in research. It then moves on to introduce designer babies and encourages students to write a clearly balanced account of the arguments surrounding designer babies. This lesson provides excellent opportunities for class discussions on ethically challenging topics and an opportunity for students to complete extended pieces of writing. The resource includes links to useful videos on the topic.
Atoms and Elements

How to light a Bunsen Burner

(0)
This creative, fun and easy-to-use resource introduces the Bunsen Burner, what the different parts of the Bunsen Burner are called and how to use it. It includes a worksheet that can be printed out to support the practical activity and assessment-for-learning activities.
Organisation of Multicellular Organisms

Organisation of Multicellular Organisms

(0)
These resources are perfect for an introductory lesson on the organisation of multicellular organisms. At the start of the lesson, students are provided with a printed out version of the worksheet. As a starter activity, students label the human body with as many organs as they can. To stretch the top students, I ask them to describe the structure and function of any organs they have named. The PowerPoint resources can be used as a visual stimulus throughout the lesson, to guide students on which activity they should be focusing on. The PowerPoint also includes the answers to the activities on the worksheet. Included within this resource is also a research task which works well as a homework activity.
Plant Responses - Leaf Abscission
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Plant Responses - Leaf Abscission

(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 process of leaf abscission. 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.
Plant Responses: Investigating Tropisms
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

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.
Homeostasis: Thermoregulation
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Homeostasis: Thermoregulation

(0)
This resource introduces thermoregulation and the actions or behaviours that increase or decrease heat loss. The resource includes a quick quiz and activity intstructing students to produce an A4 summary diagram explaining thermoregulation in humans.
Human Genome Project
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Human Genome Project

(0)
This resource encourages students to research the human genome project. It includes a series of questions to guide their research as well as answers to the questions.
Sound and Energy Transfer
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Sound and Energy Transfer

(0)
This easy-to-use PowerPoint resource introduces sound and how it travels. It links well to the particle model, solids, liquids and gases, and also includes a 6 mark question that requires students to use the speed, distance, time equation.
Metals and Acids
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Metals and Acids

(0)
This resource introduces reactions between metal and acids, word and symbol equations, as well as the squeeky pop test.
Series and Parallel Circuits
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

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.
Food Chains and Food Webs
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Food Chains and Food Webs

(0)
This PowerPoint resource provides is fun and easy-to-use. It includes a series of show and simple activities that introduce students to food chains, what they are and what they represent. It covers several key terms for the topic, including: producer, consumer, herbivore, omnivore and carnivore. This resource also covers disruptions to food chains and why food webs provide a more accurate representation of a natural ecosystem than food chains do.
Factors that effect the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Factors that effect the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction

(0)
This resource considers four factors that effect the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction: temperature, pH, concentration of enzyme, and concentration of substrate. This resource includes enough information and visual aids to fill 2 or 3 lessons. When I teach this topic, my students carry out a simple experiment, looking at the rate of hydrogen peroxide decomposition, to provide experimental evidence for the effect of pH and temperature on enzyme (catalase) activity.
