Other activities may want to be included along the way to deepen understanding. The Word workpack is designed from the Powerpoint to allow more independent students to work on the topic at their own speed, also useful for students not in class or for cover lessons. In the style of most teachers not everything here is purely original, the Powerpoint may well have borrowed bits from other resources.
