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

Science end of year quiz

Science end of year quiz

This is a quiz i have made and used with year 7 through to year 11 and the students love it! Half the rounds are science related (periodic table, baby animals, biology, famous scientists, music, sport, brands and more!) I split the students into groups of 3 and keep a running total of marks from each round to give them a bit of competition. The answers are on the powerpoint in the note section so don’t panic! I find it’s a great and engaging, educational end to the year.

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.

Evolution, natural selection and speciation

Evolution, natural selection and speciation

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 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). in reality for students to fully understand this topic I would recommend doing this lesson over two lessons and focusing one lesson on natural selection and the other on speciation.
