Five large Crosswords each with two interactive webpages. The crosswords cover the keyword definitions for these A-level and IB topics: 1. Biological Molecules, 2. Cells, 3. Enzymes, 4. Membranes and Transport, DNA and Protein synthesis.
For each of the Five Core topics there are two interactive webpages and a text document:
The text document is in PDF and word format.
a. Page 1 is the crossword.
b. Pages 2 and 3 the Across and Down clues.
c. Page 4 is the crossword grid with the answers filled in.
d. Page 5 is an alphabetical list of the keywords, which can be given out with the crossword making it easier for students who have just studied the topic
The interactive webpages allow the crosswords to be done online and can be put on an intranet site such as Moodle. The webpages come in two forms:
a. A crossword, with a time limit and no hints.
b. A crossword, untimed and with a hints button
I have found crosswords to be a very useful resource to use for revision, an extension activity and during practical work while students are waiting for results.
Crosswords a particularly useful in lessons and practicals when students are working at a different pace.
