Possible Ways to Review

There are many different ways that you could review your work but just reading through it never really works.

            1. Go through geogalot to make sure you have completed all of the tasks.
            2. You could make notes from your notes.
            3. Perhaps create cue cards for the different terms you have learnt. This can also be done for reviewing the different processes and elements of the ocean.
            4. Create a summary of the detailed examples we have studied by writing notes in bullet form on A6 paper.
