Revision Cards

Index Cards

Here are some ideas for your index cards. Once you have worked out how to use them you can make them up for any topic you really want to learn. You write the words in RED on one side of the card and the words in BLUE on the other side.

Card ONE:

Photosynthesis: is the conversion of carbon dioxide and water into a sugar called glucose using sunlight energy. Oxygen is produced as a waste product.

Chlorophyll: is the green chemical needed by plants for this process.

Card TWO:

Respiration: is the release of energy from glucose or another organic chemical.

Aerobic Respiration: requires oxygen.

Anaerobic Respiration: does not require oxygen and releases less energy.


A balanced diet: is one which contains carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, mineral salts and fibre in the correct proportions.

You will find more suggestions like these at the bottom of other pages. So when you have read the page, you can make up your index card and add it to your revision pack.

When you have two or three minutes to spare, take the card from the top of the pack and read one side. Can you remember what it says on the other side. Great, now you can put the card to the bottom of the pack and go on to the next card. If you cannot remember the definition, you have to turn the card over and then repeat the information several times before you put the card back on top of the pack.
