Tarsia Puzzles for AS and A Level AQA Economics
Absorbing topic-by-topic activities ensure students get to grips with the essential theory for Year 1 Economics. Break up the monotony of note-taking and essay writing – but still focus students on core economics!
Students match factors of production to examples, complete a sentence with its logical conclusion, or match cause to effect. The cards form a satisfying grid when the edges are correctly matched – challenging economic knowledge and problem-solving skills.
- Kinaesthetic activities for starters/plenaries, groupwork or revision
- Differentiated to challenge all abilities: two versions of each topic
- Photocopiable – students simply cut out and use for individual or pair work (laminate for longevity!)
