Biology KS3/4: Human fertilisation

An insight into the journey of sperm and the process of fertilisation.

Following the journey of both sperm and egg, CGI graphics provide a brilliant insight into the topic and includes research along with the key facts and processes that students need to know.

Some key elements of ejaculation, ovulation, monthly cycles and fertilisation are mentioned.

Teacher Notes

Sexual reproduction in humans could be compared to that of other organisms and to asexual reproduction.

Encourage the class to research and discuss different methods and relate these to success rates and species survival.

Students may find it useful to create flow diagrams that describe the different processes that have to occur for each type of reproduction to succeed.

This should inform their comparisons.
