Investigating Vernalisation and Creating Genetic Crosses

Vernalisation offers an interesting example of the way that plants have evolved to exploit the predictability of seasonal change and, in this case, to ensure that flowering occurs at an appropriate time. It also gives an example of how environmental factors control and...

Koch's Postulates

This protocol allows students to demonstrate and test Koch’s Postulates using apples infected with the fungus Penicillium expansum. The required experimental work extends over 3 to 4 weeks, but the essential steps can be demonstrated in a single practical session if students are provided with cultures and infected...

Chemistry Experiments

Chemistry Experiments contains a varied collection of labcards and worksheets from which teachers can choose in order to build up a programme of chemistry practical work for use in the school laboratory. The labcards include labelled diagrams and questions which are...

Fertility Tourism

Produced by Debating Matters, this topic guide contains background information to encourage discussion and debate on issues associated with fertility, surrogacy and IVF treatment. Specifically, the resource focuses on whether commercial surrogacy is dehumanising and exploitative or whether it is a win-win...

Special Relativity

This animated clip describes Einstein’s theory of special relativity: if the speed of light is constant then time and space must be experienced differently, depending on the observer. Richard Feynman showed how this can be proved using a moving light clock compared to stationary clock. 


This animated clip explains that the Crab Nebula that we see today was from a supernova in the year 1054. The star that went supernova is now a neutron star with very high density. The clip explains that elements are created in a supernova that go on to form planets and life itself.

Working Together: Teaching Assistants and Assessment for Learning

The materials in this National Strategies resource help teaching assistants to develop their role in supporting assessment for learning (AfL) in the classroom by promoting and embedding good practice in partnership with teachers.

Throughout the resource, teaching assistants reflect on and evaluate their role...

Behaviour for Learning in Science

This training resource from the National Strategies considers the causes of poor behaviour for learning as well as staff behaviour and its impact on learning. The aim is for teachers to: • Develop an understanding of how both student and teacher emotions can impact on learning. • Develop some strategies to avoid...

Strengthening Teaching and Learning in Science through Using Different Pedagogies: Unit 3 - Improving the Learning Climate

This study unit offers practical suggestions for use in the classroom when considering the climate for learning in the laboratory. All the strategies suggested have been tried and tested by teachers in their classrooms.

Contents include:

*Improving the physical environment in the laboratory

Elements of an Industry
