Homework activity that could be a class activity. Space for teacher comments / assessment Two methods (with images) for the same hypothesis Task: Choose the best Justify decision Suggest further improvements Extension: Create one of your own controlling as many variables as possible
Self contained task which: Tests knowledge of the required practicals Graph drawing skills (with self assessable mark scheme) Descriptions, explanations and extension questions All tasks have marking criteria with scores Three slides that are easy to print off and write on Fourth slide includes all answers to mark-able features.
From Classroomdoodles.com and Crayola.com that have free colouring in sheets for loads of subjects. Perfect for extra little interest and engagement for lessons. I have downloaded the free resources and named them for easier access but have no ownership over them. Enjoy!
PowerPoint, lesson plan and printable (differentiated) resources for lesson on temperature regulation. Includes: - Starter - Practical - 6 Marker with mark scheme - Plenary
Templates for you to duplicate and use through Forms or set through Teams. Great for flipped learning from September - mostly self marking, just have to give feedback for longer answer questions. Each one follows the general format of: Upload your notes on Carbohydrates from your text books and the link below: WEBLINK Answer the multiple choice questions that follow the video, Answer the longer question at the end, Write a target based on the task. You will have to change the Theme as it is our schools logo. Have been really useful during lock down and could be good to share - I think I have included the right links to let you use these correctly. Let me know if there are any issues. If you haven’t used Forms through Teams before you have to set the task, then go into the Teams version of that “quiz” and reset the File upload question so that it creates a SharePoint area to save it. If that makes no sense, maybe replace the File upload questions with something like “Have you spent 20 minutes + making notes?” and a Yes or No tick box question.
PowerPoint slide that could be printed A3 for a KS3 class to use when revising the solar system topic. Includes: Compass points Satellites Comets Data handling task Identifying solar system from image Time of day Gravity
Three questions on the topic of particle theory (AQA - A Level Biology - Immunity) that are on a nicely laid out sheet for completion and sticking into books. Includes self assessment at the bottom to allow them to choose which topic requires attention based on their score, not just their feelings towards it. The next slide has the answers in the wrong order so they actually have to read them not just copy them! Included is a blank version you could use for other topics. [image is just an example of others I have done]
Can use as a stand alone lesson or can set as cover if the cover teacher has access to a computer and projector. Includes: Cover form / Lesson plan PowerPoint presentation Worksheet Printables Starter: Odd one out Rules for DT and VT graphs Answers Main task explained 4 tables to draw as either DT or VT graphs and tasks to do (calculate gradient etc.) Worksheet Review rules Plenary key terms
Series of 50 mark tests with mark schemes for the following topics: - Biological molecules - Exchanges with the environment - Heart and lungs - Pathogens and immunology - Transport systems Really useful before end of unit, application tests to check they fully understand the topics. Went down really well with the students!
Good structure for flipped learning, especially for beginners and the kids really liked the consistency, not just “research the next lesson”. Set of linking homeworks for the mass transport topic in the AQA A-Level Biology course. Structure is 10 short answer questions on a lesson on the left. Then a suggested YouTube link (and description) and Website link (and description) for further research about the next lesson. Includes: Two blank templates to use for the future The first name is what the questions are about and the second is what the research is on: Tissue fluid / Haemoglobin Haemoglobin / Oxygen dissociation curves Oxygen dissociation curves / Xylem and Phloem Xylem and Phloem / Mass Flow Hypothesis Mass Flow Hypothesis / Transpiration Transpiration / Limiting water loss
Fully planned lesson including: - Settler question - Starter diagram to label (solid, liquid, gas) - Animation - Ball and hoop demonstration (with levelled answers to question) - Lighting a match using a metal bar held in a retort stand and heated with Bunsen (with levelled answers to question) - Revisit settler question and learning objectives - Extra resources (word match etc.) for extension
Lesson Aimed at KS3 Smoking. Lesson plan included (without student details). PowerPoint includes all printable resources. Structure: Settler Starter "Become an expert" task with explanation of task Questions to answer as a group or individually to suit the class Plenary to show progress

Fully planned lesson including: - Settler: Link to lava lamp clip - Starter: question re: conduction with mark scheme on next slide - Think: Question with vowels removed to get pupils to come up with the question: "how does a radiator work?" - Link: Great video introducing idea of plate tectonics to link to real world - Various questions - Convection tube demo (or link to video of one) - Match sentence to position on convection tube diagram (can print or write on own) - Linked to radiator and other questions to sum depending on time - Come back to learning objectives
Lesson structure at the beginning to explain what will be covered: - Pose, pause, pounce, bounce. - Review of presentations (could edit this to suit a previous piece of work) - Double blind trials - RAG the specification (included) - Essay title, structure for planning and detailed mark scheme and feedback form included on presentation.
Fully planned lesson including: - Quick quiz - Answers - Optical illusions to get pupils thinking about light rays and the path of light - Theory of refraction and fill in the blanks - Method (which needs demonstrating) for refraction using a glass / Perspex block - True false plenary
Easy to follow lesson using several activities: - Settler: Odd one out - Starter: plant and animal label recap - Fact finding task - Venn diagram - Plenary with three different question styles to show evidence of learning All resources are within PPT or at the end of it (including the information for fact finding task)
Well resourced lesson with lesson plan, homework and printable resources. Includes: - Settler: quick quiz - Starter: spot the differences on the graph - Graph drawing activity - Mark scheme presented as a "toolkit" - Plenary - Homework
Used as an observed lesson (so have included lesson plan without student details). I used repetition in small stages to gradually build the picture of the thylakoid membrane and the students seemed very confident at the end. Use the knowledge based questions to check basic understanding before going on to the longer answer questions. PowerPoint Lesson Plan Knowledge based questions Longer answer questions
