This book provides exercises for levels 4-10 of National Curriculum Attainment Targets: the variety of life and five human influences on the earth. The skills and processes required to carry out these investigations correspond to Attainment Target 1, Exploration of Science. The book meets the practical requirements for all GCSE Biology syllabuses, with the aims of each investigation cross-referenced to the relevant attainment targets of the National Curriculum. The investigations in this book are based on ten habitats which are likely to occur around schools. Most investigations are short and can be carried out in groups with a minimum of equipment. The photocopiable sheets for pupils include an introduction to the environment followed by the techniques used and procedure. The corresponding teacher's notes give cross-referencing of the aims of each investigation to the relevant Attainment Targets and a planning and management strategy with guidance for assessment. The arrangement of each chapter follows a standard pattern. It begins with a brief introduction to a particular habitat with emphasis on its possibilities for teaching and learning. This is followed by two or more separate but related investigations accompanied by teacher's notes and pupils' investigations. At the end of each chapter there are follow-up investigations. Their purpose is to broaden the scope of the enquiries by posing slightly more testing problems suitable for the abler students.
