Planetary investigation - data analysis

Planetary investigation - data analysis

Includes data/information (e.g. oxygen levels, temperature, amount of vegetation/water, predators, gravity) on 6 imaginary planets - and Earth. Info on Earth is roughly accurate. This info is presented in the form of a table and as a range of graphs (e.g. pie/bar charts). Aim of lesson is to first work out which graphs represent which planet. Children can then decided whether a planet is inhabitable (by comparing it to Earth's data). (Includes brief lesson plan).

Command word list for Edexcel 9-1 - simplified a bit!

Command word list for Edexcel 9-1 - simplified a bit!

Grey ones are to make it easier to remove some for use with low ability groups. Modified for slightly simpler language from Edexcel published resources. Lots of possible revision activities: Keyword matching: Match word to meaning (laminated/cut and stick) Foldable: Fold cut between the definitions and fold over to learn the meanings Grouping: by no. marks awarded/difficulty Examples: Come up with question from topic X using keyword Y Design mark scheme for Q X based on keyword Y Practise: (Low ability) objects such as sloths/choc bars – put the word and description next to it e.g. compare, evaluate etc Low ability could remove grey ones before begin activities Discuss/ MWB/choose which words from WB: What language would you use for keyword X? If this is the answer… what was the command word...? (fairly open questioning)
