Rotation Squares

What to do:

The squares are an adaptation of my concentric squares idea. Click here.

The question must be placed in the middle of the page. Around the question are prompts explaining what must be done. Students then rotate around the square completing the question in particular sections.
The idea is for students to understand what is required for a particular question worth a particular amount of marks.

Or the rotation square can be used to show how a question can be worth many marks with a different command word. So the 1 mark version can go in the middle and then the 2 mark, 3 mark and 4 mark around the outside. 

The rotation squares shows the subtle differences between questions and how much they are worth. Exploring exactly what is required from you.
