Created to support the teaching of Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Medicine Through Time.
These printable resources, (prints 1 per A4 sheet) are ideal starter or plenary tasks, allowing assessment for learning, checking recall of key vocabulary, spelling and content. A step beyond standard wordsearches, these demand pupils provide a definition of the words they are searching for.
These can be revisited at any point during the teaching of the unit to assess pupil knowledge retention of concepts and content.
Wordsearches produced using an algorithm which checks and avoids any inappropriate words appearing in the grid, however, your own proofreading is a final check for the placement of any unintended words created by random letter combinations.
Also included are animated powerpoint slides, enabling self assessment or peer assessment. Word placement in the grid appears first, allowing teacher questioning of pupils to provide their definitions, which appear after a further click. Just drop these into your own presentations or check back for full lesson resources when these are uploaded.
Wordsearch and define resources cover : Causes, Ideas and Beliefs, and Individuals, Inventions and Institutions 1500 - 1700.
