Space revision activities KS3

Space revision activities KS3

This resource is differentiated by task and also by time to be spent on each. Red activities = hardest, Orange = medium demand Green = easy The stars represent the time to be spent on each ( I change this depending on the ability of the group/ student e.g. each star represents 2 minutes) I usually display on the board and students work on A3 or print for lower ability classes.

AQA Biology Trilogy Checkpoints

AQA Biology Trilogy Checkpoints

In an effort to reduce marking I have put together these checkpoints for the B1-4 Trilogy topics. (can also be used for triple Biology.) I use them as starters or plenaries. B1 Cell biology B2 Organisation B3 Infection and response B4 Bioenergetics Students complete TG, an effort grade, a student comment for how they are getting on or any questions and a 'science specific target'. I usually get these printed on coloured paper to make them stand out, in the power point, they are clear to allow you to do this.
