Required Practical Display with Exam Style Questions and Photos

This is aimed at 14-16 year old GCSE students to encourage them to practice exam style questions on required practicals anytime during the lesson.

The questions are specifically generic so they can be asked about almost any of the practicals and consequently they do not need to go next to any particular one, producing over 400 combinations of questions with images.

The questions are colour coded for different levels with Red-Hard, Orange-Medium and Green-Easier (one could say differentiated, but one would be stretching the truth).

Also included is the required practical placemat (worth a whole £1!) to help your students answer the questions on the display.

Suggestions for Activities:

  1. I generally sit my students round the display and then ask them to chose a question and I (or another student) choose a practical or vice versa. Then we discuss the answer as a class or nominate another student or practical or question, (or stick them round my board and let the display soak into their minds through osmosis / diffusion or ask a question as a plenary)

  2. The set of images and questions can be printed smaller and students and given to groups of students who turn them face down and turn two over, an image and a question, which they then answer. This game works well and makes the question and required practical more random (like the exam).

Font size is set at 80 pt so that it can be seen at about 10 feet away (Approx 72 pt per 10 ft of distance is the rule)
