I have been a secondary school science teacher for 9 years and have just started using more resources that pupils can use in their interactive notebooks. I have found these are going down very well with pupils and they are using them throughout the year to revise and recap. All my resources are tried and tested and are up to date with the new curriculum at KS3 and KS4.

Reflex Arc Foldable - two versions/differentiated

(0)
Just one sheet of A4 to print out. Pupils cut along all the dotted lines and fold down the middle. They then stick the key words onto the outside to give the pathway of the reflex arc. It includes stimulus/receptor/sensory neurone/synapse/relay neurone/synapse/motor neurone/ effector/response. There are two versions, one has an example on the other side so they can put it into context. Pupils can also colour in the key words if they want to.

Start/End of topic quiz/test for Energy - KS3

I use this with my year 7's to show progress and to plan for future lessons. At the start of the topic they do the test by just highlighting the answers they think, we quickly mark and make a note of what they get. At the end of the topic we do the test again to show how far they've come. It's really motivational for lower ability students as they might get lower marks but they usually always make progress which boosts confidence. See my other resources for similar tests.

Digestive System and Enzymes - WHOLE LESSON AQA New 2016 GCSE Biology

(0)
Everything you need for the Human Digestion System - very independent lesson with plenty of resources, starter and plenaries. Not complicated at all and can be used at all levels. Start by printing out an A2 coloured digestive system poster found on the powerpoint - run a poster challenge where pupils are put into groups and take it in turns to look at the poster outside of the room for 30 second - the whole team have to try and recreate the poster in a certain time - prize for the winner. The give the pupils the worksheet - have the posters for the digestive system printed and laminated around the room OR upload the powerpoint to iPads or laptops - pupils use these to condense the information on the Digestive System Worksheet. Then give pupils the enzyme foldable and leave the slide of chemicals in the digestive system on the board - they use this to create a foldable for Protease, Lipase, Carbohydrase, bile and hydrochloric acid. As a plenary pupils can do word search and/or crossword which are differentiated. Then they can go through the tick list for the topic to review their learning. Ideas for plenaries are also on the powerpoint. Also a results table for the required practical. I have done this lesson with all of my GCSE classes and they loved all of the activities. All printed and laminated resources can be saved and used for years to come!

The PowerPoint goes through images taken from an electron microscope. It then shows the differences between an electron and lit microscope. For this there is a card sort with the answers on the PowerPoint. It then goes through how to work out magnification and there is a worksheet on working out magnification and actual size. Answers are in the PowerPoint. Pupils have loved this, especially the images at the start and the card sort.
