Revision lessons feeling tired? Need something to engage your students? Revision clocks are just the ticket. This resource is an entire lesson which simply requires you to tell the students every 6 minutes (I teach 50 minute lessons but I have included additional tasks if teaching an hour or wishing to create homework). The multiple tasks require students to work hard and fast if they are to complete the activities. I have used this with my classes and it has been superb. The resource includes the following topics (each their own lessons): Macbeth, An Inspector Calls, A Christmas Carol and the Power and Conflict section of the AQA anthology.
