In this lesson, students will learn about biodiversity and how animals are adapted to live in their surroundings.
This will support an understanding of the reasons for species becoming extinct and what could be done to reduce the rate of extinctions currently taking place.
Students will also investigate whether science can bring species back from extinction.

Panic-filled headlines about winter vomiting bugs, swine flu and resistant antibiotics are becoming more and more commonplace in the media, but is there a real reason to worry or panic, and what can we do about it?
This lesson plan will inspire pupils to dig beneath the scare stories and identify both genuine areas of concern, and ways in which these could be addressed.
In this lesson plan, students assume the role of disease prevention experts and are tasked with devising a strategy to contain the spread of Ebola in parts of West Africa, in the process learning about the region’s various cultural and economic factors that serve to make an already complex situation even more challenging.
Dr Joanna Rhodes has been watching wildlife – and it’s given her some brilliant ideas for teaching about learned and innate animal behaviours.
In this lesson plan students will think about attraction and how and why animals perform elaborate rituals to attract a mate.
It can be challenging for teachers to prepare lessons on new parts of the biology specification, such as neuroscience and the functions of the brain.
New material such as the synthesis of monoclonal antibodies is a topic that has made it to KS4 from university research level and beyond, for example.
During this lesson students will complete a number of discrete activities which focus on the newest content from a range of examination boards at KS4 biology.
You could break up the activities, using them individually as they fit into the larger scheme of learning, or deliver them as a more intense experience suited for separate science taster lessons or as revision towards the end of the course.
In this exploration of evolution, students begin by investigating family trees starting with the great apes, move on to the selective breeding of cabbages and, finally, create their own family tree.
In the next activity they retrace Darwin’s steps in the Beagle and model his work with finches on the island using an exciting hands-on approach.
An engaging follow-up looks at adaptation in more depth with Build-a-Beast, which provides the opportunity to create a lost world classroom display of animals the students have created shown in the environments they are adapted to survive in.
Dr Joanna Rhodes invites your pupils to study the private life of plants and observe first-hand how their determination to live, grow, feed and compete for territory rivals that of any animal.
