How I use this resource :

In class activity- I use this resource to efficiently and accurately teach the subject knowledge. I then get creative to consolidate the learning. I’ve found that the resources help to free up time for application and higher order thinking skills.

Pre-class flipped learning- The majority of students should be able to access the learning in the resource without teacher support. Why not set this as pre-learning so that students can start a lesson from a position of confidence?

Post class homework and consolidation- Likewise, the resources could be used to consolidate on in-class teacher instruction.

To support EAL students- the resources are supported by structured sentences and key vocabulary.

* To support students who benefit from short, structured activities.

* The resource is aimed at students aged 14-16 although it could be suitable for younger/older.

The resources focus on comprehension of key knowledge and processes. They include a mixture of activities including gap fills, definitions, diagrams and questions.


Each worksheet is supported with a PowerPoint that can be displayed in class and includes possible answers.
