Here is an absolutely superb set of resources provided by Rose at our Science Network Meeting. These resources are based on Thinker’s Keys, originally developed by Tony Ryan. These Resource Packs for KS3 and KS4 have been produced by Anne Pilling, Peter Robinson, Fran Killian, Jean Egerton, and Dawn Jones.

Martyn is constructing some online revision materials for KS3 Science. The activities are totally interactive, and promote AfL and independent learning. They can be done anywhere students have access to a computer. The software is HotPotatoes, and it only takes less than 10 minutes to get familiar with this superb program. Activities can be stored on computers, printed out, or uploaded for total interactive experience. The activities include Cloze, Crossword, Matching Exercises, Jumbled Sentences, Multiple Choice Questions. So, these exercises can be used as suitable for starter and/or consolidation activities in lessons. There are useful online guides on how to make your own exercises. You can download Hot Potatoes Software from http://hotpot.uvic.ca/ .
Here are some sample exercises recently constructed for 21st Century Science :
