Biology KS3 & KS4: Pregnancy and multiple births
From a single fertilised cell to a fully grown baby, this short film mixes CGI with real-life images to paint a picture of how we develop inside the womb.
The examples focus on real life caesarean multiple births as extreme examples of normal development.
Footage includes synchronised divers and a caesarean section.
It gives an example of both identical and non-identical multiple births.
This short film is from the BBC series, Inside the Human Body.
You could use this short film as part of a lesson in human reproduction, as an example of how a woman's biology sometimes leads to more unusual reproductive outcomes.
Identical twins could be used to explore ideas of variation and inheritance.
Family photos could be used to compare physical features and demonstrate the difference between twins and other siblings.
This short film will be relevant for teaching biology at KS3 and KS4/GCSE in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 4/5 in Scotland. Appears in AQA, OCR, EDEXCEL, CCEA, WJEC, SQA
