It’s that time of year when teachers and students alike start loosing their minds…. the run-up to exam season. In no particular order then…
1 // Geography 5 a day from @Jennnnnn_x
A nice set of resources that encourage students to return to their prior learning; easily adaptable and simple to use. These can easily be set as a starter activity or homework.
2 // Revision Clock from @teachgeogblog
Whilst this resource is not content specific, it’s a simple way to revise. The template breaks an hour down into 12×5 minute slots. Students revise a sub-topic for 5 minutes, making notes in the appropriate chunk of the clock. When I’ve used this before one challenge has been having the entire hour to complete it, in order to overcome this they actually only spend 50 minutes note taking and 2 of the 5 minute sections they fill with key terms or facts, stats and specifics as they review the content.
3 // Memory Geoggers from @InternetGeog
A take on @Jennnnnn_x Geography 5 aday (aka as Geog your Memory) there are a growing number of sheets being added on a regular basis.
4 // Revision Pizza with information toppings from @GeoNewbz
Quite a different approach to revision, the resources provided here help the student to summarise a topic by organising the ‘toppings’ into the correct slice of the pizza with each slice representing a part of the topic. This can be easily adapted to be questions that the students then go on to answer.
5 // Geography Skills 5 minute challenge from @K_M_Campbell
A range of skill based activities which can easily be used as starters tasks to review prior learning and to develop skills.
6 // Geog your Memory… skills and content based exam questions from @MissASearle
This resource provides students with the opportunity to refine their exam technique and identify gaps in their knowledge for the Eduqas B 9-1 spec. A tracker is included which shows the source of each question so that you or the students can access the mark scheme.
7// Videos from @timeforgeog
A variety of videos on a range of topics, suitable content for all exam boards. You need to sign up to watch the videos but they are free to watch.
8 // A question a day from @Geoisamazing
An easy to amend question a day calendar with questions based on AQA paper 1; good for retrieval practice. Hopefully a paper 2 one might be added in due course.
9 // GCSE Case Study and Exam Question Revision Booklet from @MrsHumanities
This is a resource I created recently to support independence in the revision process. Students have a summary template for each case study from the AQA Geography specification and questions that follow. Students fill in the summary templates and use them to answer the questions provided.
10 // GCSE 9-1 Geography Exam Practice Booklet from @MrTomlinsonGeog
This resource is an adaption of my AQA GCSE Case Study and Exam Question Booklet. Students are provided with the case study information and given questions to apply their knowledge and understanding too.
Hope you find a revision resource of use from the collection.
