KS3 B3.2 Microscopes

KS3 B3.2 Microscopes

For my year 7's this lesson is one of the first lessons they have with me, its a great opportunity to demonstrate that they are being trusted with expensive equipment but that there are big expectations to live up to, genuinely they are nearly always totally shocked once they see some onion cells or pondwater.https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it!My style of teaching isn’t for everyone, I’m a dyslexic teacher who’s heard it all, my lessons are all catered towards accessibility (because if they were not I’d never be able to read them myself). Everything is short sharp and to the point, I don’t believe in endless writing, reams of printing, spoon feeding diagrams or pointless activities. Every minute matters!Be sure to check out all my other resources, as a personal goal I intend to share all my resources at least once because hey, the government isn’t going to make it easier and we both know you are reading this way outside of your work hours.Enjoy, comment or rate if you can, but most of all hang in there, they need you way more than you realise!

Types of Soil: An Inquiry Study

Types of Soil: An Inquiry Study

Students in grades 3-8 will locate types of soil using several resources provided in the lesson plan:Students will engage in ten methods of inquiry to study the various types of soil collected. Soil is an important part of our ecosystem and various types of soil are useful for specific reasons. Using inquiry students will discover the differences in the types of soil and how each type interacts within the environment, how various types of soil provide things needed for our survival, and how we can preserve and care for our soil. While engaged in observation, collection, and interaction with various types of soil and their properties, students will engage in scientific inquiry as specified in the standards."Science as inquiry is basic to science education and a controlling principle in the ultimate organization and selection of students' activities. The standards on inquiry highlight the ability to conduct inquiry and develop understanding about scientific inquiry. Students at all grade levels and in every domain of science should have the opportunity to use scientific inquiry and develop the ability to think and act in ways associated with inquiry, including asking questions, planning and conducting investigations, using appropriate tools and techniques to gather data, thinking critically and logically about relationships between evidence and explanations, constructing and analyzing alternative explanations, and communicating scientific arguments. The science as inquiry standards are described in terms of activities resulting in student development of certain abilities and in terms of student understanding of inquiry.

KS3 Biology Key Word Revision Cards

KS3 Biology Key Word Revision Cards

These are general biology key word cards, print them double sided then cut out the cards. The key words are on one side and the definitions on the back. They are brilliant for all sorts.Pupils can test each other, test themselves. Some of my pupils have blank cards and draw images to go with each term then play pairs with them. They are very versatile and very effective. I use them with KS3 but they could be used with any year group/key stage.
