Hi! I'm a secondary science teacher who's specialism is biology but teach all three sciences. I teach KS3 and 4 of all abilities and always teach from powerpoint. Every lesson I post in here I have planned myself and taught to at least one of my classes. Often I find that I am able to use the same powerpoint for various classes and just adapt my teaching and explanations to suit my class! Hopefully my lessons will cut your planning time! Please review them and let me know what you think of them

Half-life

Half-life

This is the seventh lesson for the P4 - Atomic structure for the AQA 2018 specification. This is a fully planned lesson with learning checkpoints, tasks, information and activities for students to do. Usually works best with whiteboards but can be adapted for without. Should be able to be adapted to any class with minimal effort. Has examples and exam questions which have answers.

Genetic inheritance

Genetic inheritance

This lesson is for the B6 - Inheritance and evolution module for the new AQA specification for exams in 2018. It contains a fully resourced lesson including a differentiation aid for weaker individuals, learning checkpoints, information, activities and is directly linked to the AQA guidelines. I have used this resources with a middle/high ability group but have also used it with a lower ability group in the pasts (just adapted my teaching but used the same resource). The lesson goes through all the key words including Homozygous, heterozygous, alleles, genes, phenotype, genotype etc. as well as begins to look at basic punnet squares.
