Tissues, Organs and the Digestive System Exam Preparation

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.
Calculating Masses in Reactions, Percentage Composition and Percentage Yield

Calculating Masses in Reactions, Percentage Composition and Percentage Yield

(7)
This lesson takes students through the way to calculate masses in a reaction and covers a very simple definition of a mole. It moves onto Percentage Composition before having a checkpoint for the students to assess their learning and choose which independent learning task that they are going to complete. Worksheets are provided (with answers) for both of these tasks. The plenary is to write a tweet to explain what they have learnt in the lesson.
Digestive System

Digestive System

(10)
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!
Work and Power

Work and Power

(10)
Theory and then active engagement for the students. Teach the theory of work and power and do some worked examples of the calculations. The questions will need to be printed onto different colour paper and placed into envelopes around the room. Working in pairs, students will need to collect one question at a time to answer onto their sheets. Once they have completed one of the questions, they need to return it to the envelope before collecting another one. This is a race to see which pair can complete the challenge first.
AQA CH2 Making Salts

AQA CH2 Making Salts

(4)
A lesson that covers how salts are made with a scavenger hunt for the students. They need to be given a copy of the Notes to Make Sheet and will need to decipher the clues to complete the gaps. The powerpoint then goes through the tasks and the students have an assessment point before they have to decide which route to take. Worksheets needed for these routes are labelled and described in the powerpoint. One of worksheets is from creative-chemistry.org.uk as it was so good, I didn't see the point in reinventing the wheel - it is not my work.
Chemical Equilibrium and Changing Conditions
meag197

Chemical Equilibrium and Changing Conditions

(1)
A lesson focusing on finding out what the students already know about reversible reactions. They then have to self-assess where they are and choose which tasks to complete based on this. The main activity is another choice activity for students to move onto the main part of the lesson and the effect of changing conditions on chemical equilibrium.
Chemical Bonding

Chemical Bonding

(0)
New AQA GCSE spec lesson on chemical bonding. This is the introductory lesson to the topic on structure and bonding and so is more about establishing prior learning and beginning to understand what a bond is. The students can complete an investigation of burning magnesium in air to show that when a reaction takes place, a new substance is formed. Lots of questions and group work for them to complete.

The Role of Non-Statutory Public Services in the UK

(0)
This is part of the L3 BTEC Public Services Unit 3 Citizenship unit and looks at the role of non-statutory public services in the UK. Students are given a recap about the difference between statutory and non-statutory public services before being given some levelled guided research to complete into the different non-statutory public services in the UK and their role supporting society and the statutory public services.
AQA CH2 Electrolysis and Redox
meag197

AQA CH2 Electrolysis and Redox

(0)
A lesson that summarises and assesses electrolysis and redox reactions. Information is given on the powerpoint and then students are given the worksheet for them to choose their working level of questions. Textbooks, revision guides or access to BBC Bitesize (or similar) will be required.
B9 Respiration Summary

B9 Respiration Summary

(0)
Designed for a middle ability group, this is a summary of the AQA B9 Respiration topic. This can either be set as a graphic orgnaiser for homework or used in lesson as a prompt for students to complete their revision.
B10 Principles of Homeostasis

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.
B10 Human Nervous System Summary
meag197

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.
Who Can Stand for Election?

Who Can Stand for Election?

(0)
This is designed for the L3 BTEC Public Services Unit 1 Government and Politics unit and covers the requirements candidates must meet in order to stand for election in the UK. This provides students with the notes that they will need to complete one of the assignments in the unit. The lesson was designed to be an independent study task but can also be taught.
Introduction to Human Rights

Introduction to Human Rights

(0)
This was designed as part of the L3 BTEC Public Services Unit 1 Goverment and Politics unit and is the introduction to the section on Human Rights. This was set as independent study in order to prepare for the lessons but could also be taught as a seminar.
Naming Organic Compounds

Naming Organic Compounds

(0)
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
meag197

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.
B9 Respiration - Responses to Exercise
meag197

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.
