Printable revision cards for pupils. They can cut them up and fold them in half so the questions are on one side and the answers on the other. I have used Chile and Nepal for the case study questions but these can be edited to suit what you have studied.

Plate tectonic question cards

Plate tectonic question cards

Question cards for plate tectonic topic (diverging, converging, conservative plate boundaries, earthquakes, tsunamis volcanoes etc.). This resource allows students to revise and even teach themselves. When they have the answer to help their colleague their levels of retention are much higher than just reading through notes. It is a very good way to allow the students revise by themselves and involves very little teacher involvement.Very important: When printing this resource, in order for it to work you need to:1) Go to Print.2) Print on both sides and flip on short edge.If you do not follow the above steps the answers will not appear on the flip side of the questions.
