“Could you explain this to someone else ? ” Neurones, Action potentials, synapses and resting potentials - Revision and understanding through self explanation

Research shows the effectiveness of self explanation ie could you explain this to someone else

Try using these cards with a partner to revise nerves, action potentials, resting potentials and synapses


  • Print onto card. Cut out, place face down in a pack.

  • Pick up a card

  • Explain the concept with a whiteboard or paper.

  • Use all of the words on each card
