Revision Guides

I am putting together a revision guide for Water on the Land. Can anyone please help me with respect to diagrams for the various physical features. I am not sure what to include to make sure students can hit the top marks. I want the guide to be as straight forward as possible. I would really appreciate it if anyone could point me in the right direction. I went on the exam marking course online from AQA and am honestly even more confused about what constitutes a good answer. Many, many thanks.See More
