Here it is then, this is what all 4 of you voted for! This is my lesson plan for this lesson – it will remind you what you did during the lesson and also give you an insight into the planning process. If you want to comment or suggest any improvements or ideas for further lessons the please do so.
Here also are some notes on the Theory of evolution – you can use these to revise from as they are comprehensive and cover exactly what you need to know.
Vote for what you want to do this week (Mon 03/12 – Fri 7/12)
We can study either:
The theory of evolution via natural selection – there’s a couple of experiments we can do using fake worms made from pasta and food dye and we can make a bird feeding station to feed our fake worms to the birds.
DNA fingerprinting – we can set up a crime that relies on DNA evidence and construct a class DNA fingerprint in a practical activity that mirrors biochemical techniques to produce DNA fingerprints.
Making models of DNA – DNA is a massive molecule but it is made of some very simple components. We could have a class competition to make the best model of DNA from whatever components you can lay your hands on.
