GTAC resources of the month – February

Each month we will be featuring a number of GTAC VCE Biology resources that are freely available for teachers and students. These resources are great to use as learning and/or revision tasks.

VCE Biology Unit 1

Modelling cell specialisations

This teaching resource consists of a series of activities where students construct 2D and 3D model cells to explore the roles of organelles and the structure and functions of specialised cells. Click here to view these activities in the Teaching Resources section of the website.

 

Transformation of energy in cells

This teaching resources consists of a suite of activities in which students construct models of photosynthesis and respiration, then plan and conduct investigations to interrogate their models. Click here to view these activities in the Teaching Resources section of the website.

VCE Biology Unit 3

An investigation of movement of substances across membranes

A practical investigation in which students investigate the ability of four different solutes to diffuse across a semi-permiable membrane. Click here for more information on this resource in the Teaching Resources section of the website.

 

Exploring the structure of DNA

A short online course in which students deconstruct the DNA molecule and examine its structure and components. Students can access this resource by clicking Students > Online courses on the GTAC homepage. Click here to view this resource.

 

 

The many colours of photosynthesis

An online course in which students identify and manipulate the key inputs and outputs of photosynthesis. Students can access this resource by clicking Students > Online courses on the GTAC homepage. Click here to view this resource.
