Please find the slides from yesterday’s lesson on the water cycle revision page. They include my plans for the two questions, but remember that there are a number of case studies and different approaches to these questions.
Also remember that if you would like to complete an exam question and send it over, I will mark it and give you some quick feedback if this helps with your revision.
To find revision resources / sample exam questions for the Water Cycle topic (this will be the topic for Miss Bosson’s / Mr Reader’s side of the course in the January mock) click on the Water Cycle tab, and there is a link you can follow. Here you will also find a revision checklist for the topic and a list of the case studies you need to learn.
As a couple of you asked about this, please find the table to help with your ‘evaluate’ question in the test on Friday. I’ve also put some of my ideas and notes on the second page to get you started. If you see this, please mention to the others that this is here to help them!
