Revision flashcards

To help with your revision here are a series of downloadable flash cards for a large selection of key terms and their definitions. The Flashcards can be download in PDF format (Adobe Acrobat Reader required)

Downloading and making the flashcards - simply download and print the cards (there are 5 to a side of A4) - cut round the block of 10 boxes - then cut into 5 strips (i.e. keep the key word and definition as a row) - fold in half and hey presto you have a flashcard! (you may need a little glue between the two sides - but should be ok without!)

Population and Settlement Revision

Use this powerpoint for a list of key topics to revise in this module as well as a reminder of a case study of a growing settlement in an MEDC (Linby in North Nottinghamshire) and the effects of migration.

Also use this mind map as an overview of the topic and to guide your revision. Why not print it out and add as much information to it as you can?

Try listening to these ones in particular:
