Stomata spotting in GCSE Biology

Eyes on to spot stomata on leaves! 

This practical enabled students to apply and build on previously learnt microscope knowledge to practice the skill of effective microscope use. Students were looking at Stomata and Guard Cells on the underside of the leaf to enhance their new learning about the adaptations of the leaf for photosynthesis and gas exchange. Students then brilliantly linked this new learning to how plants can minimise water loss. #PracticalBiology #AQA #BuildingSchema #Progression #Application #AskTheQuestionWhy #TeamPark
