Why all the hate for Edexcel B? I recently moved from WJEC B to Edexcel and really enjoy teaching it. I'd be interested to hear your points of view on thisI'm with you Paul, as you probably know... in fact I even feel hurt when people say they 'hate' Edexcel B (rather than 'the style of questioning doesn't suit my students because...', which I'm happy to accept - I like OCR A - old Pilot - in principle, but it wouldn't suit my students...).
I adapted resources from http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Bear-Grylls-Sahara-Survivor-6089228/
I get the pupils to use this info, their own research and info from lessons/books etc to create a survival guide in a 'Bear Grylls' stylee i.e. including anecdotes and top tips... they then cover the following sections in their guide: general desert information, navigation, staying cool, food, water and what to do at night.
Usually produces some good results. The bingo is a simple grid (can use Bear clips from you tube and complete as a mini activity) which they have to fill in based on 1. Bear does something dangerous, 2. Bear eats/drinks something disgusting and 3. Bear gives survival advice. They have to note an example for each one, so when they get 'bingo' they can explain why. It works for paying attention and fits with pretty much any episode of Bear Grylls.
