Answer by heart4teaching
Play Jeopardy–you review a lot of questions in a short period of time. Your topics can be the Jeopardy categories.
Have students work in pairs or small groups to review one of the sections and come up with 5-10 questions for that section. Then copy the questions for all the other groups to answer for homework.
In science, most tests written by the curriculum company can be passed easily if the students know vocabulary. Have the students make a study sheet of the vocabulary from those chapters or units.
Have them draw and label diagrams of any processes.
I hope that helps some.
