KS3 Science (Biology): Variation
These live and interactive lessons are based on the KS3 Science National Curriculum, they will help students prepare for GCSE Biology or other similar qualifications.
The lessons are typically suited to students aged approximately 10-14 years of age. Small groups (capped at 10) ensure students get the opportunity to interact with the tutor and have their questions answered.
Lessons can be taken as a whole topic (recommended) or individually, if preferred, as they are written to make sense on a lesson by lesson basis.
Lesson 1 (Thurs 22 April): Introduction to Variation – learn about how both DNA and the environment affect an organisms characteristics
Lesson 2 (Thurs 29 April): Genetic variation – learn how the inheritance of different types of genes (alleles) lead to variation within a species
Lesson 3 (Thurs 6 May): Selective breeding – learn how humans have changed plants and animals over thousands of years
Lesson 4 (Thurs 13 May): Dog breeds – learn how different dog breeds have been developed and the health problems that sometimes arise
Lesson 5 (Thurs 20 May): Darwin’s theory of evolution – learn how Darwin’s research deepened our understanding of why there are so many species
Lesson 6 (Thurs 27 May): Mutations – learn what a genetic mutation is and how they affect different organisms
