Whole lessons created by Cardiff University Otter Project can be found on the TES teaching resources page. These highlight the impacts that contaminants have on the UKs largest carnivore, whilst tying in with WJEC curriculum. Pupils are guided through the concepts of food chains and bioaccumulation in the context of real life and current research examples. The food chain lesson is aimed at a KS2/KS3 level and has differentiation for lower and higher ability incorporated within the lesson through both differentiation by task and support. There are two bioaccumulation lessons, one aimed at a KS3/ lower ability KS4 and the other which is aimed at higher ability KS3/ KS4. Also available are Literacy, Numeracy and thinking short activities for starters and plenaries. Developing vocabulary, Odd One Out, Source Square, Memory Graph and Cloze activity. All themed around otters and how they are at risk from pollution.
All resources have been developed in collaboration with a secondary school biology teacher. The PowerPoints run through the entire lesson, with separate supporting information for teachers.
