Big idea: Heredity and life cycles
Each generation of organisms inherits characteristics from the one before, which arise from genetic information stored in the DNA of the genome and are affected by the environment. Organisms grow and change as they get older; they pass genetic information to their offspring when they reproduce, and the life cycle begins again.
Is there a recommended teaching order?
The Best Evidence Science Teaching resources can be used with your existing scheme of work, if desired.
However, we have used research evidence on learning pathways and effective sequencing of ideas to develop subject maps for biology, chemistry, earth science and physics.
