Welcome to this week’s revision assignment. This week you will be revising natural hazards and the structure of the Earth as part of The Challenge of Natural Hazards unit. Your challenge is to be able to:

  1. Define the natural hazard and other key terms
  2. Identify the different types of natural hazard
  3. Know the factors affecting hazard risk
  4. Know the structure of the Earth

You’ll be using the 4Rs of Revision technique to complete this. This method of revising is based on the latest learning science, and you can find out more about it here (if you’re really bored!).

Step 1 – Review

To begin with, you will see what you already know about this course area by completing the review below. Don’t worry, this is just to identify your strengths and areas to focus your revision on. Once you’ve completed the review, move on to step 2.

Step 2 – Revise

You can now identify what you need to focus your revision on. The question numbers from the review have been added below so you can prioritise what you will revise. Focus on the areas where you didn’t do too well!

  1. Define the natural hazard and other key terms (Question 1)
  2. Identify the different types of natural hazard (Questions 2-5)
  3. Know the factors affecting hazard risk (Questions 6-10)
  4. Know the structure of the Earth (Questions 11-20)

Part 1 – Choose your revision technique

It’s time to start revising! Not sure how to revise? There are lots of techniques available to you. We’ve put together a guide to the most effective revision techniques, which you can have a look at!

Part 2 – Produce your revision materials

Once you’ve chosen your revision technique, have a look at the background information we’ve got on this topic (and start preparing your revision materials):

  1. Define the natural hazard and other key terms
  2. Identify the different types of natural hazard
  3. Know the factors affecting hazard risk
  4. Know the structure of the Earth

Part 3 – Check your learning

When you feel more confident about this topic area, why not head over to the Interactive Revision area and try out the revision activities under the NATURAL HAZARDS and STRUCTURE OF EARTH headings and check your understanding?

Step 3 – Reassess

Part 1

Once you’ve completed your revision and have revisited it a few times, reassess yourself using the questions below.

Part 2

Have a go at exam-style questions. Your teacher may have provided some for you. If not, ask!
