This lesson looks at how to label and use a microscope and calculate magnification
Unit: Cells, tissues and organs
This lesson looks at the definition of unicellular organisms, exploring their structure and outlining the dangers and uses of different types of unicellular organisms.
This lesson defines diffusion, explores factors that affect the rate of diffusion and where diffusion happens in the body
This lesson looks at identifying variables, investigating diffusion and applying working scientifically skills
This lesson looks at the parts that make up a plant cell, their function and how to see a plant cell under the microscope
This lesson looks at plant tissues and organs and how a plant is adapted for photosynthesis
This lesson looks at the structure of an animal cell, how to prepare a human cheek cell slide to view under a microscope and calculating magnification.
This lesson compares the structure of an animal and plant cell, explaining those differences in terms of function and using this to make a reasoned argument.
This lesson explores many types of specialised cells, looking at their function and adaptations.
This lesson looks at how animals are multicellular organisms with organ systems which carry out the 7 life processes. This lesson will explore several human organ systems.
This lesson looks at the organs that make up the digestive system, their function and how the small intestine is adapted for diffusion.
This lesson looks at the respiratory system organs and how they are adapted for efficient gas exchange.
This lesson looks at an investigation of the differences in inhaled and exhaled gas, table drawing and writing conclusions.
This lesson will recap the use of microscopes to see animal and plant cells and calculating magnification
This lesson will review animal and plant cells, specialised cells and levels of organisation
This lesson is dedicated to Betty Hay and looking at her contribution to the world of cell biology.
