NEW 9-1 AQA Geography Revision Guide - Unit 1

This is a revision companion guide linked with the 'CGP GCSE AQA Geography 9-1 Course' book. The booklet contains personal learning checklists, keywords and exam practice questions. It also contains suggestions for revision techniques and 'top tips' for the exam.
This booklet is for Unit 1 (Physical Paper). It contains the themes of:
- Section A - The Challenge of Natural Hazards
- Section B - The Living World (not cold environments)
- Section C - Physical Landscapes in the UK (not glaciated landscapes)
However the booklet can be easily adapted to add in/take out sections.
The booklet also links in with GCSE Pod with suggested videos and video playlists.

Pupils find this guide extremely useful to help structure their revision and help give them a starting point. It's also good for them to have something to work through ticking off as they go tracking their own progress. It really helped with motivation for outside of school revision. See Unit 2 (Human Paper) Booklet as well!

Geography Revision - AQA Geography A - Tourism Revision Sheet / Booklet

A double sided A3 revision sheet / A4 revision booklet with instruction slides to extend and consolidate learning from the Tourism (AQA Geography A) module. The end result is a concise revision tool.

Double sided A3 worksheet or 5 page A4 booklet > Built around the AQA Geography A specification > A range of activities > Does require exercise books / textbooks > Ideal for revision & cover lessons

The main aim is…
To revise and extend learning from the module by working through a structured revision sheet. The sheet has been built around the outgoing AQA geography A specification.

Key ideas and content…
The whole module!!
Tourism is a case study heavy module, so the revision material has ended up with a lot of tables to simplify the key ideas.

To differentiate…
Model examples and provide support.
Break down into timed sections to allow progress checks.
Students should be encouraged to draw links between sections.

Next steps…
I use this before the module exam.
Use to practise answering some exam questions.

All reviews for our premium resources have been 5/5* (as of 4th March 2017)
