Natural Hazards Revision Tarsia

Natural Hazards Revision Tarsia

This Tarsia puzzle covers the theme of Natural Hazards (tectonics, extreme weather, UK weather). Great for 9-1 GCSE revision and intervention sessions. Made for AQA but I'm sure it fits other exam board specs.A Tarsia puzzle requires students to match up sides of triangles to form a hexagonal shape. They are brilliant for revision and get students to think hard. I use these at the starts of ends of lessons and they can take 10-20 minutes depending on your class's confidence in the material. All materials are provided here including student instructions, student puzzle pieces and teacher answers. All images have been acquired through a search engine filtered to labelled for re-use. Enjoy!
