Jekyll and Hyde Revision GCSE Literature AQA

Jekyll and Hyde Revision GCSE Literature AQA

A complete set of 30 questions and accompanying answers. I used these with my top set so they are suitably challenging. Although many uses, I enjoyed setting the class up in four teams, printing off four sets of cards and then creating a relay game where they have to make their way through the pack of cards by trading answers for new cards. This took my classes the whole an hour lesson.
