Biology Lesson Starters - Do Science Now - Ages 11 to 14

Biology Lesson Starters - Do Science Now - Ages 11 to 14

49 lesson openers for your powerpoint needs! A collection of DO NOW activities for biology lessons (age range 11 to 14, though it can work for some GCSE lessons too). A DO NOW is any activity that you have at the very beginning of class that helps you set the tone for that day. The powerpoint is fully linked to a menu and animated where appropriate. It's very much a download-and-use resource. There is a rationale slide and how to use/things to avoid slide as well. There are 49 different activities that can be used as starters (or plenaries if you like) covering biology topics below: Microscopy Cell Structure Cell Function Plants vs animal cells cellular diffusion unicellular organisms multicellular hierarchy skeletal functions muscles and skeletons muscular function balanced diet energy requirements unbalanced diet digestive system bacteria and digestion plants, carbs, and photosynthesis gas exchange breathing mechanisms exercise, asthma, and smoking stomata and gas exchange reproductive organs menstrual cycle fertilisation gestation to birth plant and flower structure pollination plant fertilization seeds and fruit photosynthesis photosynthetic organisms leaf adaptation recreational drugs substance misuse aerobic respiration anaerobic respiration fermentation aerobic vs anaerobic food webs insect pollinated crops bioaccumulation inheritance DNA Watson, Crick, Wilkins, Franklin Biodiversity Variation Natural Selection Extinction Gene Banks Generic DO NOW activity
