Product Description
Important Information – the first slide of each lesson in this unit bundle starts with a quick quiz/test based on the previous lesson/s learning. Your pupils should answer the questions in a different colored pen in their books. The second slide gives the answers and your pupils should self-assess or peer mark. This then gives you – the teacher – formative assessment on your pupils progress – recorded in their books. FOR EVERY LESSON. Which is fantastic evidence for book checks. Also I ask my pupils to take photographs with their phones of each lesson and homework is to revise that lesson. Not only do you as a teacher tick so many boxes but most importantly your pupil’s progression in this subject improves.

Thank you for taking the time to view my premium resource. It is designed to provide you with a lesson in which pupil’s progress, the lessons follow a pathway; prepare for learning, lesson objectives, present new information, construct on that information, apply and demonstrate, review and consolidate.

Most of my premium resources follow the same format, which is:-

All power points to tell a story
Learning objectives clearly and uniquely visually linked, short, relevant and punchy, revised a minimum of 3 time a lesson.
Fun pictures all over to help tell the tale.
All slides plain black background font comic sans minimum 24 for contrast and easy to read at the back.
As many fun, creative and original practical’s built in to lessons as could be implemented.
All resources produced and stored for each lesson.
Practical instructions given along with prep room requests.
TEEP embedded, alongside philosophies from working with the Stimulating Physics program.

Check out my bundle offers where you can get amazing discounts on lessons and worksheets.

I have also listed my 2 x Exam prep lessons which can be adapted to any topic, along with 16 test prep activities which really get the students engaged. I want above all else for students to progress and achieve, so I have listed theses at a hugely discounted price of just$3.00 for 2 lessons and 16 activities, check them out in my shop.

I strongly believe in fun education, see for yourself and check out my blog over on www.marinebiologybook.com there is loads of science for kids and big kids too, along with a splurge of marine biology.

This resource will provide you with a great lesson and save you that precious commodity – time
