Practical Science for 11-16s: Lung biology and dissection
Date: Thursday 1st February 2024
Location: Wesley Hall, Crookes, Sheffield.
Time: 10.00 to 12.00 am
Links to the Edexcel specification 2.50 practical: "investigate breathing in humans, including the release of carbon dioxide"
Students will be supported to investigate the mechanics of breathing and to carry out a dissection on real lungs (lamb). Each student has their own set of lungs to dissect, if they wish. They will have opportunities to further their knowledge and understanding of lung biology, gas exchange and the role of muscular and skeletal system in the mechanics of breathing. They will be guided to develop exam technique and understanding of key words and terminology.
All tasks are carefully differentiated to allow students at any stage of their IGCSE journey to access learning at a level that is suitable to them individually.
Please note that this practical uses real lamb organs. Halaal organs may be supplied upon request. Please add a note to your booking or send an email when you book.
