A kinaesthetic GCSE Chemistry lesson teaching the concept of relative formula mass (and % composition) using skittles!
Clearly differentiated by ability from RED activities where students calculate the relative formula masses of simple compounds, ORANGE using compounds with brackets, GREEN using complex compounds with brackets and PURPLE EXTENSION calculating % compositions.
Starter activity ticks the numeracy box and tests students prior knowledge.
Main differentiated construct activity with skittles.
After the main activity, students complete a past paper question which is clearly differentiated with a writing frame and keywords for weaker students to help them access it.
Reflective AFL plenary using paper airplanes for students to reflect on their learning in the lesson.
A perfect observation or OFSTED lesson but also great for everyday use to engage students highly in this topic.
Builds on knowledge of mitosis and meiosis from GCSE. Introduces the cell cycle and the different steps in mitosis. Designed to be used for the OCR AS Biology course in combination with the course textbook.
Revision sheet for students to fill in to help them consoldiate their understanding of the photosynthesis topic. Useful prior to exams for students to pin up around their house/condense the topic onto one sheet of paper.
The fluid mosaic model of the cell membrane. Includes activity for students to fill in the functions of each part of the membrane. Designed for OCR AS Biology, to be used in combination with the OCR textbook.
Includes diffusion, carrier and channel proteins, the types of molecule and which way they are transported with regards to the properties of the molecule. Designed to be used for the OCR AS Biology course in combination with the course textbook.
