4 revision sheets with questions covering Crude oil, alkenes, alcohols, carboxylic acids & esters from the 9-1 GCSE specification.

The sheet is designed to be worked through independently by students allowing teacher to provide support during the revision lesson to the students in most need.

This revision activity will take most of the lesson to complete. The later slides in the slide pack are the mark schemes. These can either be printed out for the students to self-assess or projected by the teacher.
