Protein Synthesis - Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes *suitable for home teaching*

From Nelson Thornes, these activities encourage students to examine the process of protein synthesis. They look at the differences in this process in prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. Students are asked to consider the detailed mechanisms and assess the benefits of the different methods. These biology resources...

Cell Signalling *suitable for home teaching*

Produced in 2014, this resource looks at cell signalling when the hormone adrenaline binds to receptors on the surface of the target cell. The resource sheets describe how the original hormonal signal is amplified through a cascade reaction.

Galapagos Conservation (Ages 16-19) *suitable for home teaching*

From ARKive, these resources help students to learn about the Galapagos Islands, their biodiversity and conservation. Through a series of activities, students look at: * the scientific history and importance of the Galapagos Islands * the species that inhabit the islands including the concept of endemic species *...

Biodiversity *suitable for home teaching*

Sovon, a Dutch bird protection organisation, counts birds. The number of greylag geese is increasing. Students are asked to investigate whether this increase is worrying for the diversity of water bird species? Students explore what the concept biodiversity means, how it can be described mathematically and what are...

Redox Titration *suitable for home teaching*

From Nelson Thornes, these materials are aimed at A2 level students and help them to reinforce and practise their understanding of redox titration calculations. These include redox titrations involving iron, copper, manganate, sulfate and dichromate ions.

Reaction Rates and Mechanisms *suitable for home teaching*

From Nelson Thornes, these resources help students to reinforce understanding about reaction rates, orders of reactions and the rate-determining step of a reaction. The activity challenges students to determine the order of a reaction from experimental data and deduce the reaction mechanism from this data. These...

Born-Haber Cycles *suitable for home teaching*

From Nelson Thornes, these materials are aimed at A2 level students and help them to understand the energy changes involved in Born-Haber cycles. The student activity sheet follows on from the study of Born-Haber cycles and the calculation of lattice enthalpies. The activities requires students to apply this...

Nocturnal Animals (Age 5-7)

Produced by ARKive, this hands-on activity is designed to teach 5-7 year olds about nocturnal animals and the senses they employ to navigate life in the dark. Humans rely heavily upon the sense of sight and these activities explore the ways other animals have become adapted to life where and when light is less...

ARKive School Museum (Age 11-14)

Produced by ARKive, this series of activities teaches students about endangered species through the creation of an interactive museum.

ARKive School Museum

Produced by ARKive, this series of activities teaches students about endangered species through the creation of an interactive museum. Children learn about endangered species through the ARKive School Museum presentation and then choose an endangered species to research. They then produce an exhibit by creatively...
