What made 9/11 so shocking?

What made 9/11 so shocking?

(7)
There aren't many September 11th lessons out there so here's one! The main objective is for students to gauge how 'complete' a BBC news clip is. The PowerPoint includes task descriptions but please ask if you can't follow the lesson. The bottom of the posters should be folded up so that you can reveal the answers! You choose the plenary. If you know of a short clip which was produced a little after the event that would be useful. Any comments are appreciated! :-) Images acquired through a search engine filtered to "labelled for reuse" BBC own the copyright to the clip in the link. I've been observed in this lesson and graded as outstanding so hopefully this works for you too. (911, 9-11)

Natural Hazards Revision Tarsia
maxblackburnmaxblackburn

Natural Hazards Revision Tarsia

(1)
This Tarsia puzzle covers the theme of Natural Hazards (tectonics, extreme weather, UK weather). Great for 9-1 GCSE revision and intervention sessions. Made for AQA but I'm sure it fits other exam board specs. A Tarsia puzzle requires students to match up sides of triangles to form a hexagonal shape. They are brilliant for revision and get students to think hard. I use these at the starts of ends of lessons and they can take 10-20 minutes depending on your class's confidence in the material. All materials are provided here including student instructions, student puzzle pieces and teacher answers. All images have been acquired through a search engine filtered to labelled for re-use.

Who was Florence Nightingale and what impact did she make? Medicine GCSE

This resource was planned for Edexcel's medicine through time course however it could easily be adapted to suit other boards or lower year groups. Students go through a range of activities to gather and secure their knowledge of Nightingale. Independence is encouraged and students have to work hard to complete all activities within the hour. I use both the Edexcel endorsed brown textbook and the older Edexcel blue and white Dawson textbook in my medicine classes.
