for various complicated reasons, I am currently home-schooling both my children, aged 10 and 7, and found that this differentiated task worked well for both. Suggested answers are included, along with a suggested website. Good as a revision or overview activity.
this could also be called verbal tennis/ hockey or whatever, depending on the sex distribution of your class.\n\nI have graded the teacher questions so that you have the option to choose which member of the team answers.\n\nas always, any comments or suggested improvements are greatly appreciated
topics include: refraction (yr 8), the eye (year 8), cells, acids and alkalis (yr 7) and forces and motion (year 7)
useful for revision or as a plenary
desired otucome is consolidation of previously learnt material
for a medium to low ability class. the one leabelled 'les' just has fewer cells in it for lower ability. This could be differentiated further by taking out other cells. I reckonit would be good for a revision lesson or a homework. The students can sort the labels into at table, labelled &'cell&'; (picture), 'function&' and &';adaptations'.
