a fully contained lesson for higher biology - b1b aqa but could be used for other boards. set up as a market place around the room with the posters. students draw a table in the book with the headings: animal, numbers left, reasons for endangered status
A lesson based on how to use research and form hypothesis for the unit 2 btec applied science project. could be used for other types of research too. The only additional resource needed are some printouts of websites that can be used for planning an experiment. I have added the follow on list of stuff that we used to check off what was required for the write up in the next lesson - it may be useful to adapt to fit the assignment written in your school
a lesson based on adaptations for survival. Includes lesson plan and all resources
This is a 30 min lesson that could be easily extened to a full lesson with class feedback and other activities linking energy transfer in a real situation. I did 3 demos of fuels so pupils could see that not all fuels are traditionally though of as fuels. the demos were blowing custard powder/icing sugar into a bunsen, whoosh bottle (big water cooler bottle with a small amount of ethanol and ignite it - it looks like an upside down rocket) and methane bubbles. It really engaged them and they really enjoyed putting ideas about the true or false cards.
An independent learning lesson on the Doppler effect, what it is and how it relates to sound. the power point contains the basic lesson and links to YouTube for the big bang theory and a little explanation clip. I printed out the information cards and placed them around the room for students to collect the information from. The students then were responsible for their learning and collecting the information from around the room.
A full lesson with plan on the big bang, what it is and the evidence behind it. All the resources are there - some have been taken from here and adapted to create a full hours lesson. I used the collins set of textbook for the market place style activity. The questions for quick on the draw were 1-8 from the poster question sheet
Full lesson for evlauating and justifying why recycling is important. The starter links to the ideas of mining and extracting metals from ores. It is an A and B lesson but you easily adapt. The ideas were to show lots of progress in the lesson and this is why the exam question is given before the main activity. I printed out a website with possitive points and negative points. This formed the basis of the main task. Im sorry I dont have it electronically so its not been linked. \n\nThis was done for an observation with B/C graded kids and got an outstanding for progress!
A song that helps students develop their ideas of three different vairables and the corrisponding lesson plan and worksheet to accompany the song. Rocket balloons are inflated balloons stuck to straws and the straw is threaded through a long piece of string. The balloon can then be deflated to send it moving on the string. A number of different variables can be investigated with the eaisest being the amount the balloon is inflated. This is taliored to a low ability set but can easily be adapted by the use of questioning and how much intial support students are given.
A concept cartoon for animal adaptation. All statments are paritally right but the students can use them to discuss the ideas at the start of the lesson or at the end of the lesson to asses progess. I have used it at both the start and the end of a lesson so the students can see how much progress they have made.
slides that can be used to add into your own files with generic activities. different sections such as starters, bell activities, class activities, paired activities, differentiation, extension, afl and quick mini plenaries. There is also power point slides with countdown timers for 1-5min, 10, 15, 20, 25 min timers. Over 100 slides. **All are hyperlinked together so you can navigate between different activities. 90 simple activities included in the slides. Most require no planning and a few require a little editing to put your own topic or questions in. ** hyperlinks don't require control + click, you need to be in slideshow mode and just click on the word to move to the appropriate page - in response to the first review**
a set of slides that can be added into your own lessons to aid differentiation in lessons The six updated areas have six tasks attached to them. These slides can be slightly adapted in a minimal amount of time to fit to the lesson. A few require a little forward planning but nothing more than a quick five minutes.
an hour lesson on types of radiation, properties and introduction to uses - more about applying what they have learnt to situations. you will need to find a quiz off here for the types but there are lots to choose from. The summary sheet was a table off the board with column headings: particle type, stucture, penetration power, ionisation power.
a complete lesson on a power point. video clip from you tube to answer questions from and then students model the process in modelling clay on a sheet. an exam question to finish which can be peer assessed or self assessed. very straightforward. students could be given the choice to draw or make the pictures.
a lesson based on how microbes are transfered. The lesson is based around Semmelweiss and what he discovered. you will need the glow bug powder and a uv light. make sure you sprinkle it on worksheets first to show how its transmitted. it shows what surfaces it gets on to and how one person not washing their hands has a big effect. you can also use the gel to demonstrate how well hand washing needs to be done to remove any traces of microbes.
Complete unit 1 - atomic structure for AQA but could be used for other exam boards. Based on the flipped learning approach - the students do the learning before the lesson and then perform consolidation in the lesson along with exam style questions to assess progress. Includes the lesson plan for each lesson, links and video links, suggested activities for before and during the lesson and then exam style questions for each lesson. Suitable for y1 A level or the AS course. There is no prescribed practical as there is none in unit 1. There are textbook references to advanced chemistry for you with questions given from the textbook that fit with the lesson subject.
Ideas and activities for lessons. they are all my resources that I have put on her individually in one at a combined price. there are two or so activities that overlap.
a set of generic ideas to get engagement from your class. some do require a lot of planning and some require very little. There is a template with some of the scaffolds to help with differentiation and time saving.
This is a 6 page power point with each slide being a mat that can be printed or shown in lessons to sum up the learning. You will need a dice per group/pair. 6 tasks on each slide. slide one - summary/knowledge tasks slide two -number tasks based on consolidating the learning Slide 3 - drawing tasks slide 4 - writing tasks slide 5 - creating a learning task for the lesson slide 6 - helping others task
A lesson based around the higher teir on the Le Blanc Process and chlorine production. More based around evaluating the process and envrionmental impact. Full lesson plans and resources are there. Was intended for a double lesson but could be split into two
a collection of ideas and templates to make lessons more engaging and interesting. most require little planning and have slides or documents that can be adapted and added into different material. some require a little more planning but really are great.
