Principles of Homeostasis

Principles of Homeostasis

(3)
THIS RESOURCE IS NOW PAID - I HAVE ONLY LEFT THE LESSON PLAN. PLEASE HAVE A LOOK FOR THE FULL LESSON IN MY STORE. IT IS A 5 STAR RESOURCE, AS SHOWN BY THE REVIEWS FROM PEOPLE BEFORE THE RESOURCES WERE REMOVED This lesson is suitable for an interview or observation. Students recently completed a progress check on photosynthesis and respiration. This lesson introduces homeostasis to the students, from the topic Bioenergetics. LOs: (We are learning …) • What homeostasis is. Literacy Objective: • To apply key words; homeostasis, temperature, enzyme, hypothalamus, receptor, stimuli, effector, coordination centre Differentiated for learners: All students will be able to explain what is meant by homeostasis Most students will be able to explain why it is important to control the internal environment Some students will go even further and be able to describe the interactions of the key elements of control systems Legal Resolutions As usual, I respect copyright so as a result I have not included some resources for this lesson. A handout for students included would have been a mixture of relevant resources from Boardworks and Footprints. For copyright reasons I have not included this. Use other resources, such as textbooks or the internet to gain this research if these resources cannot be obtained. Question table obtained from Q4 of this lesson on www.kerboodle.com with your school’s username and password, again you will need to sign up for this for copyright reasons.

Enthalpy/Energy/Hess's Law/Thermodynamics Hand written revision Notes

(0)
Detailed notes for the A-Level Chemistry student on Enthalpy (32 A4 Pages). Can also be used by a teacher for refreshing their knowledge or to gain some examples to use with their students. These notes have been on the most part HAND WRITTEN and SCANNED IN, HOWEVER there are a few typed pages at the end. Includes: -Definitions -Enthalpy diagrams and interpretation -Enthalpies of Combustion and Formation -Enthalpy of Neutralisation -Experimental Measurement of Enthalpy Changes (includes calculations, explanations of variations in results and a hand-drawn diagram -Measuring enthalpy changes for reactions in solution (with method and worked calculation) -Hess’s Law and Calculation of Enthalpy (lots of examples and calculations and different methods of calculation using cycles) -Average bond enthalpies -Entropy -Thermodynamic vs Kinetic Stability -Suggested resources (links to videos and websites etc.)
Polymers Interview Lesson

Polymers Interview Lesson

(0)
Contents Complete with interview lesson plan, this lesson was originally developed for Section C1 of the now discontinued ‘Science A’ AQA Specification for Year 10 Core Exams, however this is still in the specification for the new 9-1 Chemistry (triple) exam, particularly higher tier. Learning Objective • To explain how polymers are made from monomers and the difference between alkanes and alkenes. Differentiated for learners: All students will be able to recognise the primary difference between an alkene and an alkane and know the difference between a monomer and a polymer Most students will be able to describe how a polymer is formed and how to show this using structural formulae Some students will go even further and be able to express some of the complex environmental issues surrounding the production of polymers and how these can be resolved. Notes The lesson can be pulled off in as little as 50 minutes with good pace but has enough material for more. You will require the ‘coloured card’ method of using various coloured cards with letters on them (A, B, C or D) to match appropriately with the quiz questions. The sea of colours helps to quickly identify any students who don’t understand, and demonstrate to the observer that progress is being made.

Structure and Bonding (Observed Lesson)

Structure and Bonding (Observed Lesson)

(0)
This is a chemistry lesson focused on properties of simple, giant ionic and giant covalent bonds. It will require a bit of teacher led input (there isn’t a powerpoint) but the lesson should be pretty straightforward, make sure you have access to water, salt and a power pack for a practical demo on conductivity. Bonne chance!!
Food Tests (AQA 9-1 Required Practical 4)

Food Tests (AQA 9-1 Required Practical 4)

(0)
This lesson is aimed for a double lesson, but can be amended as necessary. Students recently completed a series of lessons on diabetes. This lesson is a required practical covering food tests. It will be written up in their lab books.This is ‘Required Practical 4’. LOs: (We are learning …) • How foods can be classified • What a positive test looks like for each of the food types • How to carry out qualitative tests to detect the presence of sugars (Benedict’s Test), starch (Iodine Test), proteins (Biuret Test) and lipids (Sudan III Test) Literacy Objective: • To apply key terms in order to write up a scientific investigation; reducing sugars, glucose, starch, positive/negative test result, iodine, biuret, lipids Ideally for this resource you should have access to Kerboodle. I have not included these worksheets for copyright reasons but you can access these through your school to obtain the differentiated practical sheets. Alternatively, you may use the standard AQA one in their official required practical booklet, freely downloadable on their website. Credit for the methods and photos to CGP Books, from where the scanned images and answers were obtained.

Electrical Safety Hazard Symbols

(0)
A list of electrical safety hazard symbols and their meanings for students to refer to during GCSE electronics or any Physics topic in GCSE Alternatively you could purchase the other lesson in the store ‘Introduction to WJEC GCSE Electronics’ which includes this resource

Atomic Structure Summary A3 Posters and Mind Map

(0)
A3 Poster Summary of Atomic Structure for A Level students - also probably useful for GCSE (Higher papers). Great to laminate and put around your classroom or science department. Enjoy! -The Titration Technique (and associated calculations and definitions) -Periodic Table, States of Matter and Bonding (with definitions) -States of Matter -Allotropes -Electronegativity -Why water expands when cooled -Notes expanded from the mind map -Useful links to websites and videos
Exploring Electrical Components (Lesson 1 of WJEC Electronics Course)

Exploring Electrical Components (Lesson 1 of WJEC Electronics Course)

(0)
This lesson allows students to explore the different functions of components they may come across during the electronics course, and as such is more detailed than Physics GCSE. It took me a long time to make this resource since no one has made this kind of resource before. Hence the price. It features everything from the potentiometer to the LDR and simple lamp. It is a very student led lesson with teacher guidance. It makes things very easy for a teacher to deliver. It requires access to the internet. Worksheets can be sent to students so they fill these in directly due to covid etc. As is standard practice with lessons, always check you are happy with the video resource before showing it to students. So no complaints on this please Video used is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEL5laB3hfU It has: Starter Short - CAPTURE INTEREST - video clip Activity (bulk of lesson) Answers to this activity Match up mini plenary Answers to this Exam question (taken from actual WJEC paper) Answers to this. A worksheet and its filled out form is detailed inside with occasional tips on each slide. This is a 50-60 minute lesson. Enjoy your lesson, please rate and review :)

Reading Schematics (Lesson 2 of WJEC GCSE Electronics)

(0)
Students will learn how to read schematic diagrams as opposed to just traditional circuit diagrams. They will learn how to infer voltage from given questions. They will learn how to interchange between traditional circuit diagrams and schematic diagrams. They will finish with an exam question originating from the exam board. Opportunities for self/peer assessment are within the lesson. A link to a relevant video is within the lesson.
