AQA GCSE Biology Bioenergetics Learning Grid

AQA GCSE Biology Bioenergetics Learning Grid

This resource is intended as a collaborative revision activity. It is suitable for the Bioenergetics topic (4.4) in the new AQA GCSE Biology qualification. Students work in small groups and take turns to roll 2 dice in order to determine a square on the grid. The student must then describe/explain the contents of the square to the rest of the group. This can be made more challenging by determining two separate squares and making links between them both. Differentiated for Foundation and Higher students, with versions of each containing ? squares to allow for the use of exam-style questions in addition. Includes a learning checklist for the topic.

Edexcel A-Level Chemistry: Atomic Structure Learning Grid

Edexcel A-Level Chemistry: Atomic Structure Learning Grid

Designed as a revision task for Topic 1 - Atomic structure. The learning grid allows groups of 2 or 3 students to work together to review the topic. Each student rolls 2 dice to get a ‘grid reference’ and they then have to explain what is contained in that square. This can be made more challenging by rolling the dice twice and making links between the 2 squares identified. There is also a second version, where students must answer an exam-style question if they land on the ? square. Learning checklist included to check initial understanding and progress made. Now also includes suggested answers.

AQA A-Level Chemistry DNA & Anticancer Drugs

AQA A-Level Chemistry DNA & Anticancer Drugs

I have found this part of the new specification to be lacking good resources, so I am slowly building mine up for this area of the course. So far this bundle comprises a PowerPoint on the structure of DNA and the action of the anticancer drug cisplatin; a set of 15 MCQs with answers; and a learning grid which makes a great revision resource on the topic. Check back soon for additions to this bundle

AQA A-Level Chemistry DNA & Action of Anticancer Drugs Multiple Choice Questions

AQA A-Level Chemistry DNA & Action of Anticancer Drugs Multiple Choice Questions

There seems to be very little in the way of resources for this new section of the AQA A-Level Chemistry course on DNA. I have tried here to put together a resource of 15 MCQs testing the ideas needed for this part of the spec. Reflecting the enhanced level of maths in the course, some of the questions require some calculation too. Full set of answers provided.

AQA GCSE Chemistry (9-1) Learning Grids Collection

AQA GCSE Chemistry (9-1) Learning Grids Collection

Every single learning grid to cover all topics for the new AQA GCSE Chemistry (9-1) specification - that’s 11 topic areas and over 30 different grid types. The learning grids are ideal for end of topic revision and exam preparation. Students work in small groups and roll 2 dice to determine a square on the grid. They then have to explain to the rest of the group what is contained in the square. An alternative to make this more challenging is to roll both dice 2 times and determine 2 squares. The student then has to make a link between the contents of both squares. Each grid has a second grid containing 6 ? If students land on one of these squares they must answer an exam-style question on the topic. Each learning grid is differentiated for H and F where appropriate and come with a revision checklist also.
