Suggestions for use: Resource could be used as a teacher presentation by projecting onto the whiteboard as the writing is visual for board display purposes. Alternatively, the teacher could print out the slides (Set tablets at stations with different slide for each station), the physical equipment can be placed beside the notes so that students can feel, handle and use some of the lab equipment. Students should individually complete the matching exercise with teacher walking around checking student progress on matching exercise.
