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.
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
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!

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
