To help Year 11 with their recall of A01 they have been using sweets to model the nervous system and the structure of DNA.
For the topic of homeostasis, students have to learn about the nervous system. They were shown an animation, given a diagram and then time to memorise the structures. They had to select the sweets that they felt best represented the different components of the nervous system. They then had to model it and label it. They were then given different exam style questions.
They also had to do this to model the structure of DNA. This is to help them understand that DNA is made of two strands and is twisted to form a double helix. Again, they were given exam questions to answer on this.
