KS2 Classification - Kingdoms

(2)
A lesson on how Linnaeus developed Aristotle’s classification system, naming kingdoms and dividing the anaimal kingdoms into sub groups. There is a Google slide version of the PP here, please make your own copy. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1qI07691LDhiSmX5MdtJOI9z4qYMn5rZAYO6V9we_gPg/edit?usp=sharing I am a secondary trained Physics teacher, but have been asked to teach KS2 Biology this year. I have found it quite a challenge! I hope this can support someone who is feeling as overwhelmed as I was.

KS2 Classification - Using Classification keys

A lesson for Y5/6 Biology, looking at classification keys I have made the PowerPoint myself, but used resources from other educators who have given permission for their resources to be shared. Here is a link to the Google slides, if you chose Google over PowerPoint https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/15UzugZqdwYxHKrOvyLgcIDjqoO7pVqlxXx1iby1yL9E/edit?usp=sharing
Balanced Diet - Food tests on McDonald's

Balanced Diet - Food tests on McDonald's

(1)
After teaching a lesson on the 7 food groups, students use food tests to conclude whether or not McDonald's provides a balanced diet. I buy a big Mac to test. Then watch a short clip on the Supersize documentary and analyse the symptoms of a high fat/high sugar diet; physical and mental. There is also opportunity to evaluate the food tests as methods of identifying nutritional content. I would recommend setting up the food tests as a circus of activities. I have two circuses on the go, so 8 stations. However, this would depend on your lab layout and your class.

Investigate - How can we find out if a claim is true

(0)
Encourages pupils to consider the reliability of information, and not to just take headlines as fact. Many young people 'share' stories on Facebook and Twitter, without considering the source of information and the reliability of the research. After discussion, pupils design their own investigation to test if a claim is true.
