About This PDF
This series helps students to become critical thinkers and independent, creative problem-solvers by stimulating student thinking beyond factual recall and procedural levels.
The activities engage students in higher order thinking, which involves the application, synthesis and evaluation of knowledge and skills. For example, students will not only be able to recognise Newton's laws, but will understand them and be able to apply them to solve new problems.
Use the Instant Lessons to supplement your existing resources, to extend student capabilities, for revision purposes, or for class work when the regular teacher is absent.
