I am teaching this topic for the first time ever and I'm GCSE Edexcel 9-1. I really want to make this an awesome topic for the students as they've worked hard on Development (even though they didn't love it and really found it hard) so I want them to really enjoy this next topic. Can anyone give me pointers / resources ' ideas to help me make this a successful topic? I'd appreciate anything!!!

Lots of really good online sleep tests e.g. https://www.nhs.uk/Tools/Pages/Sleep-self-assessment.aspx

Also Lark/owl test https://www.surrey.ac.uk/features/sleep-quiz-are-you-owl-or-lark

Get students to keep a sleep and dream diary. Also some very good documentaries out there on sleep, dreaming and sleep disorders.

I taught this last year and they really enjoyed analysing one anothers dreams after keeping their dream diaries! I think i downloaded the dream dictionary from here.
