Biology GCSE Key-Word Revision Sessions [Crosswords & Games] (Exam Preparation)

Biology GCSE Key-Word Revision Sessions [Crosswords & Games] (Exam Preparation)

This revision session is designed for GCSE Biology teachers who want to lead revision sessions focussed on key-words and literacy. The download features:-A full PowerPoint to guide the session (with a starter, objectives, main task, a game, & AfL)-A colourful and fun double-sided worksheet (with 2 x key-word crosswords)-A teacher’s answersheetIt serves as a fun and relaxed way for students to revise key-words and allows you to gauge their knowledge of key-words based on how fast they can complete the task.Ideally, you should have a time where students work alone at first (so that you can gauge their level of knowledge) and then co-operatively (in pairs) so that they can learn.All activities in this session are focussed on key-words so if you feel your students need to revise key-words this is the perfect resource for them!

GCSE Pupil-Led Activity Pack on the Respiratory System

GCSE Pupil-Led Activity Pack on the Respiratory System

A pack of three pupil-led activities designed to engage learners in the classroom whilst studying the respiratory system topic.Activity 1 - Card sort on breathing and lung structure.You could either print this on paper and then cut/guillotine so that pupils could then order them in the correct sequence and glue into their classbook.Or alternatively print onto card or laminate if on paper to create a resource that can be used again and again. Activity 2 - Card sort on the mechanism of breathing. There is a differentiated version of this activity with the higher tier version featuring the internal and external intercostal muscles.Activity 3 - Loop game on the topic of the respiratory system and respiration. There is a differentiated version of this activity with the higher tier version featuring the internal and external intercostal muscles.The idea of this activity is that the pupils have to pay close attention to the question being read out as they may have the correct answer to the question. Pupils seem to really enjoy this activity and it not only helps their learning but is fun too. Either print on card or laminate if on paper to make a reusable resource for the classroom. These activities would be useful as a plenary at the end of the topic or as part of a revision lesson. Activities such as these are praised in observed lessons as the activity is pupil-led rather than teacher-led; great for when being inspected :)

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate Unit w/ 12 lesson plans, PPT, and MORE!

If you’ve never read The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate (“EvCT”) by Jacqueline Kelly, you are in for a treat. My sixth graders love EvCT and I LOVE teaching it! It works well as a cross-curricular unit with science OR history- and the author’s voice is simply incredible.71 pages + 91 PowerPoint slides = 162 page resource!This product contains everything you need for a great unit and aligns with the Common Core State Standards.This product includes:• TWELVE lessons, each with a worksheet (study guide) featuring vocabulary. Answer keys are included. Most lessons also include extra activities to supplement the lesson (For example, one chapter features a PALS activity, complete with instructions; another chapter features a figurative lesson worksheet and activity.). The lesson plans are grouped as: 1. EvCT Ch 1 2. EvCT Ch 2 3. EvCT Ch 3 4 5 4. EvCT Ch 6 7 5. EvCT Ch 8 9 6. EvCT Ch 10 11 7. EvCT Ch 12 13 8. EvCT Ch 14 15 16 9. EvCT Ch 17 18 19 10. EvCT Ch 20 21 22 11. EvCT Ch 23 24 25 12. EvCT Ch 26 27 28 EvCT POWERPOINT (90 slides) The PPT gives visual references for background information (pinafore, kerosene lamp, Wounded Knee Massacre, author background, etc.), discussion questions, Venn diagrams, exit tickets and much more. Students also get to guess the prices from the 1890’s (my students love this activity!)EvCT Final Test (Answer Key included)Bookmarks What student doesn't like a little gift? Packed with EvCT info (and vocab!), this bookmark is a handy "cheat sheet" to use with the worksheets ~and possibly the final test (IF the teacher allows it...).This product also features several opportunities for figurative language practice (EvCT has a ton of figurative language: perfect for mini-lessons!) and a semi-colon study. Some worksheets (study guides) offer “challenge questions.” There are opportunities for differentiated learning. You can use challenge questions for students who are absent or as an activity for cooperative learning…). There are also suggestions for research. PLUS- writing prompts!This product is editable, if you prefer to customize any part. Final test, writing prompts, and extra activities are included! The Common Core Standards cited are for 6th grade, but other grades are largely interchangeable. Recommended for grades 5-8, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate is a 2010 Newbery Honor Book and the winner of the 2010 Bank Street - Josette Frank Award.I spent over 100 hours on this product. I pride myself on creating a unit that offers user-friendly, thought-provoking lessons and creative activities. Click this link to buy all of my
