SI units converter - order of magnitude

A card for LA students to support conversion of SI units, (conversion of picometres, nanometres, micrometres and millimetres). Made for the NEW AQA Biology Trilogy Combined spec - Biology chapter 1: Order of magnitude. Will fit other exam board/specs. I usually print and laminate as a desktop resource, but can be stuck into books or used differently.

Mutation find an answer starter (Editable to use for any topic)

(1)
Perfect for any topic to check students' prior knowledge or check progress from prior lessons. Editable by adding new questions into each box. Pupils are given 5 minutes to move around the classroom and find a student who can answer each question, they must find a different pupil to answer each question. This checks pupils' progress or prior understanding as they must each answer most of the questions for other students. These can then be peer marked, self assessed or marked by the teacher for a progress check.

QWC or DIRT task renewable non-renewable resources

(0)
Used along with a sustainability/renewable resources Y8 lesson, this QWC or DIRT task can be used to assess pupils in-depth. I used it in conjunction with our KS3 textbook, however it is adaptable to meet your spec. Get students to follow the criteria and then tick off what they have done when you mark it so you can easily level it, then get them to do any SPAG improvements and additions to their work - simple.
