Science Games Book 4 Earth Science: Relay race revision games for Earth Science topics
SCIENCE GAMES – 5 TITLES IN SERIES By Julia Burton
Here is a fun way for students to revise science topics. Relay race revision games encourage teamwork while students compete to win the race not necessarily by finishing first but by answering the questions thoroughly and accurately. Students develop their communication skills as they discuss the scientific ideas needed to answer the questions correctly. Higher-ability students can extend themselves by tutoring and debating with others. Immensely popular with both students and teachers, these science games are a much more engaging strategy for revision than going through a text book! This ready-made resource, with games across all areas of biology, physics, chemistry, earth science and human biology, is the ideal way to revise and reinforce a whole years worth of learning.
