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.
Defence Against Disease

Defence Against Disease

(0)
This lesson guides students through the body’s three main lines of defence again disease. Students begin by considering and discussing what the immune system is and why it is useful. Students then look at the difference between physical and chemical barriers to infection before learning about the process of phagocytosis. Students are introduced the B and T cells, before creating an artistic piece about a pathogen trying to avoid each of the body’s defences.
Disease - Microbes - Reproduction Modes

Disease - Microbes - Reproduction Modes

(0)
This resource is ideal for a first lesson on the topic of disease. The first slide includes a series of questions for students to discuss about diseases. The second slide introduces the six different types of pathogens. Students can then copy and complete the table on the third slide, about the structure and modes of reproduction, using the remaining slides on the powerpoint, their textbooks and/or the internet. The fill-in-the-blanks worksheet can be used alongside the powerpoint resource and includes examples of diseases caused by bacteria, virus’s and fungi.
Classification of Living Things - Introduction and Five Kingdoms
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Classification of Living Things - Introduction and Five Kingdoms

(0)
This lesson introduces students to the science of taxonomy and encourages them to consider why and how we classify living things. The resource includes a fun practical activity that invites students to classify a selection of food items into groups, based on their similarities and differences. Depending on how much time you have available, I then challenge my students to work in groups of five to complete the five kingdoms comparison table on their worksheet. If they finish early, or as a homework activity, I then invite my students to make a set of five top trump cards, one for each of the kingdoms.
Organisation of Multicellular Organisms
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

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.
Heart Structure and Heart Dissection

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.
