There are 14 Powerpoint Pages of levelled revision questions on Electricity. 3 questions per page. Rules are below. For a class set, you will need to print them twice. This allows for students to see and answer the same questions repeatedly, allowing for repetition, repetition, repetition!
The topics included are:
AC / DC graphs
National Grid / Transformers
Sankey Diagrams (energy transfer & efficiency)
- Each student finds a pair. The teacher should take part too (can then target/assess key students during the activity)
- On each page, start with question 1 which is the simplest. IF students get it correct, they move onto question 2. If they get it correct, they move onto question 3.
- If they make an error, the conversation STOPS at that question. The person reading the question SHOWS their friend the answer AND reads it out. Reinforces and repetition again for both students.
- Once they have both had a turn, they SWAP pieces of paper and then find a new pairing.
Once completed - takes around 15 minutes, a mini test or quiz can be done to re-inforce what they can recall and describe. A real confidence booster.
After a few goes, students will no longer need reminding to swap - it might take a few attempts, but this is one of the best revision styles that I have ever used in terms for engagement and improving confidence. I also give my students a copy and these can act as their flash cards.
Each question is levelled - this is only for guidance. I wanted students to gain in confidence as the questions get harder. I have **loosely ** called them grades 1-3, 4-6 and 7-9.
