REVISION STARTER ACTIVITIES: Entire unit quizzes American West,  Edexcel

These quizzes have been designed as 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 tasks to drop into other lessons.
The idea is to use them as a way to interleave prior knowledge into current topics and ensure that knowledge is returned to frequently to develop knowledge retention.

The 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 structure gives students instant formative assessment in which they can then choose a topic to ‘pledge’ to revise that week as part of their homework. Every quiz has a green pen slide with answers to go through with students to support the teacher.

Students find these tasks very fun and engaging and can see where their strengths and weaknesses across a topic lie.
I have designed the task to revise important concepts briefly at least once by the time they have completed all of the starter activities. The activities could also be used as a building block to help students identify what they will be doing for the rest of the lesson (to be used closer to exams when completing revision tasks).
