At the end of this Scavenger hunt students will be able to learn about the science of plate tectonics with different theories, types of boundaries and effects of it on earth along with its vocabulary. Its a great tool to review any subject units. Colorful and neat images on cards will create a deep interest among kids to perform the game with great visualization. Task cards are a great alternative to worksheets. They allow students for random movement in the classroom, which brain research shows increases achievement! It works well with partners or individually. Preview images may have reduced picture quality due to jpeg file. But original .pdf file contains clear images. Topics covered are: What are plate tectonics? Lithosphere Physical and thermal structure and sub layer of Earth Two types of crust (or tectonics plates) Major and Minor Tectonic Plates Theory of plate tectonics & Convection currents and Plate movements Types of plate boundaries: Continental drift theory and Alfred Wegener Pangea (all land mass) Wegener’s Evidence for Continental Drift: Sea floor spreading Mid-Ocean ridge & Mid-Atlantic ridge: Harry Hess’s ideas on sea-floor spreading Evidence of sea floor spreading: How to Use: Print the 24 Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock or brightly -colored paper and cut them apart along the black lines. Make copies of the Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet. Each student needs a copy. Place the Scavenger Hunt cards around your classroom where students will be able to find them. You can put them on chairs, on the computer keyboard, on the back of your classroom door, on the sides of student desks, on the chalkboard or wherever you like. Students have to search the room and find all of the sentence cards to answer the questions. You can differentiate by having students work alone or with a classmate. © 2015 Brilliant Classes This purchase is for one teacher and for classroom use only. All rights reserved.

WJEC 2016 SPECIFICATION MOCK EXAM PAPER for PAPER 1 (FULL PAPER THEME 1-3 and MARKSCHEME)

WJEC 2016 SPECIFICATION MOCK EXAM PAPER for PAPER 1 (FULL PAPER THEME 1-3 and MARKSCHEME)

It’s that time of the year again when we prepare our students with mock exams to see how well they know their stuff. In this mock exam pack, I have created a very detailed mark scheme that looks very similar to the real mark schemes that are used by WJEC examiners. In addition to this I have also added grade boundaries to help consistency with the department awarding process, but also I have looked at previous exam grade boundaries and given the best estimate to what they could be like in the summer. The mock paper includes only the first three themes and includes a range of different questions that help to show pupils the different ways that they could ask a question in the exam. Theme 1 uses the additional questions that have been uploaded to the WJEC websites, Theme 2 and 3 uses a range of past paper questions and exam style questions from the revision guide. The paper is set out like what the real exam paper would be set out like, giving students the opportunity to get a feel of what the real paper would be like. NB, I have decided to print my exam paper in booklet form on A3 paper as I feel like this would give pupils more of a feel for the exam, but you don’t have to do that Any feedback would be great!
