B10 Principles of Homeostasis

(0)
This is for the AQA B10 Human Nervous System topic and is the first lesson in the topic covering homeostasis. There are two starter activities provided to choose from depending on the ability of your group and their prior knowledge. The lesson takes students through developing definitions of homeostasis and key terms before finishing with a set of questions for which they will need access to textbooks.
B9 Respiration - Responses to Exercise

B9 Respiration - Responses to Exercise

(0)
This is part of the AQA B9 Respiration topic and covers a practical to find out the effect of exercise on the body. This takes students through how to take a pulse and then step by step the practical method. The tables of results are provided for the four stages of the experiment. You will need to have a timer on screen if you are doing it whole class or stopwatches if they are going to work in pairs/individually. There are two sets of questions (using the data and making conclusions) at the end that can either both be completed or just one depending on the ability of your group. This was designed for a middle ability group.

Titrations and Calculations

(16)
A powerpoint to take students through the process of carrying out a titration and the calculations then required. The starter sets up the idea of how a concentration can be calculated and should lead to some discussion. There is then a summary of key terms before explaining how to carry out the titration and the calculations.
Ionic, Covalent and Metallic Bonding

Ionic, Covalent and Metallic Bonding

(53)
Summary assessment lesson for the new AQA GCSE spec. Students assess their prior learning in the starter by choosing a set of questions to answer. In the main activity, they need to make the key notes on the three topics which can be added to from textbooks/ revision guides etc. The topic that they start with is the topic that they ignored because it was too hard in the starter. Once they have made notes, they complete a set of questions before self assessing with the mark scheme. There are differentiated questions for ionic and covalent bonding. Plenary is an exam question to check understanding. I have run this as a challenge race where students record their scores for the 3 topics on the board and prizes are awarded for the highest mark in each section, the highest total mark and the first person to complete all three sections. It has worked well with a low ability and low motivation group.
Digestive System

Digestive System

(12)
This focuses heavily on literacy while learning about the digestive system. You will need access to a lot of Biology textbooks from KS3 to A Level and potentially access to the internet. The starter is a Scrabble based activity where students are challenged to find the words that have the highest score. This can be differentiated by giving students the choice of an unlimited number of letters, no more than 7 letters etc. The main part of the lesson is a research based task in groups. This takes the form of a “FIGHT!” as students will have to decide which is the most important in the body. Groups are allocated an organ to research using the questions on the powerpoint. The groups then nominate a spokesperson to feedback the information from the group. Students then have to vote which organ they think is the most important. There are then questions to answer as the plenary of the lesson. Hope you find this useful!
AQA C1 Atomic Structure Summary and Revision

AQA C1 Atomic Structure Summary and Revision

(0)
This is a summary and revision of the AQA C1 Atomic Structure unit. This is planned for an entire lesson at the end of the topic and covers all of the content in two sections. The first section is the starter and main part of the lesson and covers Atomic Structure, History of the Atom and Separating Techniques. For the starter, students are asked to complete one set of questions. The main part of the lesson allows the students to complete a set of key notes on each topic before answering a set of questions. They are to start with the topic that they ignored in the starter because it was too hard. There are two levels of questions for each topic and the student can either choose their level or be directed by you. Answers are provided for the students to self assess. If they do not meet the minimum requirement to demonstrate understanding, a mini masterclass can be run to reinforce the key topics. An exam style question for each topic is provided. The plenary is about balancing equations and students are given the rules, a brief overview of writing equations and practice questions with answers. I have run this lesson with a challenge for the main part of the lesson. Prizes awarded for the first student to complete all of the notes and questions for each topic; highest mark overall; highest mark for each section etc…
AQA C3 Structure and Bonding Revision
meag197meag197

AQA C3 Structure and Bonding Revision

(0)
Revision for the AQA C3 Structure and Bonding unit. The questions on the sheet cover all of the areas in the topic and will provide a revision sheet for the students once completed. I recommend printing back to back onto A3. I have used it: As a starter to identify areas of weakness. As a final summary before the end of unit test. This can be in class or as homework. A group activity during the lesson. Students work in pairs and take it in turns to answer the questions on the sheet. Once the first person has answered a question, their partner can either answer another one, add to the previous answer or, using a different colour, correct a previous answer.
Naming Organic Compounds

The first lesson for Y12 Organic Chemistry. This should involve refreshing from GCSE but does take the process of naming compounds in a step-by-step manner before giving some compounds to have a go at naming.
Aerobic and Anaerobic Respiration
meag197meag197

Aerobic and Anaerobic Respiration

(0)
Students will learn about the two types of respiration and will carry out a practical in order to find out what is produced in aerobic respiration. The lesson starts with the common misconception that respiration and breathing are the same thing and clarifies the differences. Students then move on to identifying what is produced by aerobic respiration in order to plan an investigation to find out which of two flasks of germinating peas is respiring. A planning template is provided for the students to follow. The experiment can be easily set up by having two sealed vacuum flasks, one with hot water peas and one with room temperature water and peas with thermometers. A delivery tube can also be attached to test for carbon dioxide using a bicarbonate indicator. You may need to “fudge” the set up in order to ensure that carbon dioxide is being produced by the correct flask.

Tissues, Organs and the Digestive System Exam Preparation

(0)
Designed to act as a summary for the Organisation and the Digestive System GCSE topic, this covers the key areas that students need to know. This was tailored for my lower ability GCSE class but can be easily tailored to the needs of your class by changing some of the questions on the last slide as required.
AQA P7 Radioactivity
meag197meag197

AQA P7 Radioactivity

(0)
This was designed as an introductory lesson to radioactivity to a low ability group and covers the first lesson in the AQA P7 Radioactivity topic. Students are taken back to the structure of the atom to ensure that they are confident about the terminology of subatomic particles before moving on to look at the three types of radioactive decay. As a practical is not always possible depending on the policy about radioactive sources in schools, I found a virtual lab online, (link in the presentation and here: http://www.gigaphysics.com/gmtube_lab.html), which allows you to either demonstrate to the whole class or to allow students to carry out investigations on their own. Tables of results are provided. Example data has been put into the tables on the slides to allow discussion. A conclusion is then written about the practical with students having to complete the core question and one other. Students are then given a choice of differentiated questions to complete the lesson. There are some extra slides at the end to help in discussion.
B10 Human Nervous System Summary

B10 Human Nervous System Summary

(0)
This covers all of the key information that students need for the AQA B10 Human Nervous System topic. This can either be given as a graphic organiser to structure homework or as a prompt in lessons to direct revision. I have used it printed out double sided on A3 for students to complete and then keep in a revision folder in preparation for their GCSE exams. The questions in boxes with dotted lines are more challenging.
