This download includes:

  • A starter
  • A full lesson PowerPoint
  • A stakeholder groupwork activity (differentiated)
  • A Plenary to round off the lesson

All necessary resources to run the lesson are included in this download and all my lessons are for a double lesson i.e. to take around 1hour and fifty minutes so they can be separated into two single lessons if required.

The aim of all my resources is to provide lessons / activities of good quality that will add value to your lessons / schemes of work without any extra planning.

All activities and resources have been used in class and any errors will be fixed and resources updated as soon as I am aware of any errors. I have priced my resources at what I consider to be a reasonable cost based upon the amount of effort and work I have put into them but all comments and suggestions are very welcome and will be used to improve future resources.

Please do leave a review and if you have an idea for a topic / resource that you would like to see (or improvement for this resource), feel free to contact me.
