AQA 9-1 Paper 1 Key Recall Questions
yatess79yatess79

AQA 9-1 Paper 1 Key Recall Questions

(0)
A series of questions to test recall for all topics on the AQA Trilogy Paper 1 for Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. Questions come in blocks of 10, with either one or two sets for each topic. These are accompanied by a table for students to track their own progress. I am currently using these with all my GCSE groups. Students complete the same test at the start of each lesson and record their results. This is repeated until all the class are successful, I then mix up the questions and repeat the process.
Immunity Description

Immunity Description

(0)
Students sort the images into a cartoon strip that shows how WBCs fight pathogens. They then match up the description with the diagram. I followed this up by showing my own description of how this happens without using keywords. Students then rewrote my description using better language.
