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.
