Activity for any Science video

Activity for any Science video

Use this sheet to focus students through a video of any length and give a chance of assessment. While watching the video students come up with 10 (or more if you add rows) questions and write the answers on the back. After watching, they swap and answer each others quizzes, hand them back and get them marked. There is space for feedback as well. I never let students watch videos without a purpose and as this is generic it can be kept behind the desk as a back up.

Flipped HW - light dependent reactions of photosynthesis

Flipped HW - light dependent reactions of photosynthesis

First side: 10 short answer questions about the light dependent reactions of photosynthesis. Space to write notes from the lessson. Second side: Links to YouTube video and website for further research into the next lesson (light independent reactions of photosynthesis) with space to make notes. Useful for a regular and structured homework ensuring review and research is done from lesson to lesson. My pupils really like the routine and know exactly what to do - it is manageable too but i tell them its a minimum.

Flipped learning homework template

Flipped learning homework template

The first sheet has space for 10 questions based on the lesson just taught on the left and space for summaries of the key ideas on the right. The second sheet (the back sheet if copied front to back) has space on the left to write a link to a YouTube video and space for notes with suggested styles of note taking at the bottom. The same is laid out on the right for a website link. My A-Level students really liked the structure for keeping up to date with notes and preparation for the next lesson but could be used or adapted for KS3 and KS4. It can be taken in the following lesson and/or self assessed as the starter giving you a chance to go around and check completion.

A-Level Biology - All HW for Mass transport topic - Flipped style

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

Photosynthesis - The Light Dependent Reactions (A-Level Biology)

Photosynthesis - The Light Dependent Reactions (A-Level Biology)

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
