I have been teaching a number of years in a secondary state academy school. Teaching and learning is something very important to me and i strive to produce high quality resources. I have recently worked with a publication team for Pearson to design innovative resources for teachers teaching the new GCSE edexcel specification and have reviewed many A level specifications in partnership with them too. More resources will follow as i get started with the new specifications!
This resource I have used as a card sorting activity. Students were then able to compare their answers with a master answer sheet that I displayed on an interactive whiteboard. In order for them to know the knowledge, all students were provided with a series of materials to help them work out where each statement went. Students then stuck this in their book. Obviously for less able more than one statement can be out together. For example, carbohydrates and provides energy could be cut out together. An extension activity I used was for students to research other examples of that food type in their diet. We then linked to an exam question and peer marked this.
