Big Picture Science Magazine


Big Picture is a science magazine from Welcome trust. Published twice a year, it is a free post-16 resource for teachers that explores issues around biology and medicine. Past issues are also available for download. The content is high quality and can be easily used as the main lesson source on given topics. I found that some of the content is even suitable for 14+ ages. There is reference to evolution and Darwinism though, so you will need to be careful in explaining Islamic believes regarding evolution. Topics like Sex and Genders also contain material which may be unsuitable for young learners. And in the Obesity issue, some pictures are not in accordance to Islam. So you will need to review the issue before introducing it to the pupil. There are also some animations available on the site on topics like DNA, parasitic diseases, bacterial diseases etc.
