AQA 9-1 Paper 1 Key Recall Questions

AQA 9-1 Paper 1 Key Recall Questions

A series of questions to test recall for all topics on the AQA Trilogy Paper 1 for Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. Questions come in blocks of 10, with either one or two sets for each topic. These are accompanied by a table for students to track their own progress. I am currently using these with all my GCSE groups. Students complete the same test at the start of each lesson and record their results. This is repeated until all the class are successful, I then mix up the questions and repeat the process.

Investigating Igneous Rocks - Crystals

Investigating Igneous Rocks - Crystals

This is a full lesson that investigates how igneous rocks are formed with different sized crystals in them. It can be a stand alone lesson or follow on from another resource on the site that investigates the viscosity of lava. In this lesson; - Bell work - Objectives - Literacy activity to improve a description - Investigation into crystal sizes with worksheet - Applying understanding to a real volcano - Planning a further investigation into crystal colours

Investigating Igneous Rock - Viscosity

Investigating Igneous Rock - Viscosity

This is a full lesson that follows on from the structure of the Earth and investigates how igneous rocks are formed and how the composition of the lava affects the shape of a volcano. It includes; - Bell work - Objectives & Key words - Modelling igneous rock formation - Developing descriptions (including DIRT) - Types of igneous rock - Investigating the viscosity of lava - Applying findings to volcano shape I also have available the following lesson that investigates crystal size in igneous rocks.

Immunity Description

Immunity Description

Students sort the images into a cartoon strip that shows how WBCs fight pathogens. They then match up the description with the diagram. I followed this up by showing my own description of how this happens without using keywords. Students then rewrote my description using better language.
