AQA A Level Business - Unit 1 - Businesses and the External Environment

AQA A Level Business - Unit 1 - Businesses and the External Environment

This lesson and activities cover a 2 hour lesson on how the external environment affect businesses. It is designed for the AQA A-Level Business, and has a series of teacher led and student led activities. It worked very well for my observation lesson for my performance management, and allowed for clear differentiation and challenge. Also includes a main end activity which allows students to build on their exam skills.
