      • This is a well-constructed presentation with plenty of activities and opportunities for peer review. The only downside is that it mentions a worksheet that isn’t included in the resource.

      • This is a great start to deserts and encourages students to reflect on prior learning and self-assess their knowledge. Useful exam style questions throughout. Easily adaptable to suit different specifications.
