Deforestation Scenario game for AQA GCSE Biology and Science Trilogy

(2)
This engaging game was a hit with my class. You can use this game to teach about the reasons and consequences for deforestation. The class are given the following scenario: “You form the government of a small country that contains a large rainforest. Due to years of war and instability, the country is not popular with tourists. With very few other industries, the country is running out of money. All that you have is forest so you will need to decide whether to sell a portion. Whenever you sell forest, cross off the squares you have sold on your forest board using a marker pen. You have been borrowing money from other countries and have a debt of £2 000 000 which needs to be paid by the end of the game.” They will then work in small groups to make as much money as possible from their rainforest. There will be consequences for their team depending on how much rainforest they choose to sell. They will learn about the reasons behind deforestation and the problems it creates. Follow up questions are included.

Exam style calculations for module 2 of new OCR Chemistry A Level

Exam style calculations for module 2 of new OCR Chemistry A Level

(0)
Suitable for assessment for learning, an end of module test or for revision. After looking at the specimen and practice exam papers for the new OCR Specification, I noticed that the calculation questions have become more challenging than the old spec. I have written 18 questions and based them on a similar format to the new style of question (and included several ideal gas equation questions). I have included a markscheme which shows clearly how each answer is calculated, and suggested how many marks each question should be worth (the total number or marks for the questions is 126) but you can edit this as you see fit. I have checked the questions and answers several times (and tested them on my pupils) to make sure they are correct but if you notice any errors please let me know. Please also leave feedback if you find this resource helpful.
