The resource is an excellent lesson firstly introducing keywords critical to this lesson and how antibiotics work and lastly covers the benefits and challenges around the use of antibiotics in today’s setting. An exam question also accompanies this lesson as homework for exam practice.
B10.1 Principles of Homeostasis
sporobolo19sporobolo19

B10.1 Principles of Homeostasis

(0)
Students are firstly introduced to this lesson by putting themselves in an extreme environment and consider their bodily responses. This is then followed by the introduction of the various conditions which need to maintained and the key components which maintain homeostasis. Students then get to consolidate this learning by exploring specific examples of how each condition is maintained in homeostasis. Exam questions further stretches the learners to solidify their understanding of the this subject further.
B10.2 The Human Nervous System
sporobolo19sporobolo19

B10.2 The Human Nervous System

(0)
This lesson could be easily used for a two hour lesson in which the general structure of the nervous system is introduced as well as how the nervous system works. Students then complete a practical on investigating reaction time and consolidate their learning analyzing the data collected from the practical as well as completing exam questions based on these two lessons.
B10.5 The Eyes
sporobolo19sporobolo19

B10.5 The Eyes

(0)
This lessons opens with the polarizing question, ‘what color do you see?’ to engage students. The bundle consists of the main PowerPoint with a wide choice of videos (including an eye dissection) to explore the structure and function of the main parts of the eye and further exploring the eye’s structure through exploration of the eye’s blind spot.
P12.2 The properties of waves
sporobolo19sporobolo19

P12.2 The properties of waves

(0)
This resource could be used for the second or third lesson in P12.2. The first activity focuses on the simple mechanics of the wave equation and then gives students an opportunity to complete relatively simple worded problems to build confidence. A quick multiple choice plenary is also provided for quick assessment of student's progress at the end of the lesson. There is also a focus numeracy skills such as conversions and formula rearrangement to further support students.
The function of the digestive system
sporobolo19sporobolo19

The function of the digestive system

(0)
These resources use a model of the digestive system to engage students in understanding the function of the various organs in the digestive system and further extends them to recall how the various tissue types (muscular glandular and epithelial) covered from the previous lesson in this unit are involved in digestion.
