The World News Crossword - July 22nd, 2018

The World News Crossword - July 22nd, 2018

The World News Crossword - July 22nd, 2018 is a 6-page PDF document made up of 4 puzzles based on the events of last week’s news. This resource, used on a weekly basis, is an excellent way to ensure your students’ are** internationally minded** - a fundamental requirement of any of the IB’s 4 programmes. What’s in this week’s document? (1) A crossword based on the events of last week’s news, (2) A crossword all about Japan (which signed a free trade agreement with the EU and also experienced a devastating heatwave), (3) A crossword all about Libya (which closed its border with Tunisia and also did not approve the EU proposals to set up a refugee/migrant processing centre - did you know Libya has no permanent rivers?) and (3) A crossword all about Mother Teresa, whose orphanages in India were being inspected by authorities after accusations that staff had sold babies for adoption. (This puzzle is taken from our soon-to-be-released book, ‘Women who changed the world’.) **What happened in last week’s news? ** The EU fined Google for being very naughty and also signed a free trade agreement with Japan making trade easier. Libya closed its border with Tunisia, making trade impossible. Tourists were hurt by falling lava in Hawaii. Others drowned when their tour boat capsized in Missouri. China’s President went to Africa and the first commercial flight between Eritrea and Ethiopia occurred. Two Dutch men were arrested when they were caught on a boat with 2 tonnes of cocaine in the English Channel and French man was released from an Indonesian prison after 18 years for drug-smuggling. It turns out that Omega-3 won’t keep us safe from strokes and heart attacks, Cristiano Ronaldo is moving to Italy, and New Zealand beat France in the women’s rugby sevens world cup final.

Coriolis Effect - Model making and explanation

Coriolis Effect - Model making and explanation

Model making task to show the effects of the Earth’s rotation on wind patterns. The animated Powerpoint introduces the concept of the distribution of heat around the Earth, followed by animated step-by-step instructions to create their own model. All templates included and simplified as much as possible to allow all students to access. This has been particularly useful to help students visualise the movement of air around the Earth for what is otherwise quite a complex conceptual theory. The created models can then be used alongside the atmospheric circulation theory (Hadley/Ferrel/Polar Cells) to explain why trade winds travel in the direction that they do.

Rivers - Geographical Landforms: Parramatta River

Rivers - Geographical Landforms: Parramatta River

Rivers - Geographical Landforms: Parramatta River - This resource has a notebook and a worksheet. This notebook looks at rivers and their features. It focuses on Parramatta River in Sydney, but you can easily change that feature to your local river. It assists students in using maps. It has a fun activity of dressing Ed Sheeran for fishing in the river. I also used that page and placed my students’ heads on the body, so that it was personalised so they could be dressed on the interactive whiteboard and on paper to fish in the river. There are also some integrated literacy skills to match aspects of the river as well as a writing sheet. It was created for students with special needs (SEN) for teaching life skills but can be used as a valuable resource for early years literacy. There is an accompanying visual symbol board to print.

This unit of work has been written for the start of Year 7, but could be used within any of KS3 or even adapted to Year 6. It starts off with what a place is and describing where we live in the world. It then uses local fieldwork to investigate places and moves on to improving knowledge of the UK, Europe and the World. You will need to adapt the fieldwork lessons slightly due to the local surroundings to your school, but this will only involve a localised google map and a couple of images.

NINE-USA CITIES

NINE-USA CITIES

This presentation can be used for children between the ages of 9 and sixteen. There are fifty five slides and thirty nine pages of additional resource materials. I have selected the following cities because of their contrasting site, situation and geographical locations. They are: Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. This selection of cities offers extended studies in both Physical and Human Geography. Included in the slide notes and the resource file are suggested work challenges involving on line work, historical links, geographical writing skills, discussions and other map drawing exercises. The presentation can be targeted at nine and ten year old students but it will be necessary to use the shortened version of the script. Children between the age of eleven and fourteen should be able to cope well with most of the challenges. Key Stage 4 (fourteen to sixteen years) students involved in examinations will be able to link this resource with a large range of the exam topics. Some examples include: Boston and New York - Settlements, site, situation and geographical location. New Orleans - Flooding, Mississippi Drainage Basin, River features including deltas. Detroit - Industrial and population change. Chicago and Detroit - Location, Waterways and Trade, Glaciation and the Great Lakes. Los Angeles and San Francisco - Environmental Hazards and Tourism. Las Vegas - Desert environment, Water resources and the Entertainment Industry. Washington DC - Capital City, history, location, population, government and tourism. There are several IT challenges on offer that involve constructing a quiz word grid, following the course of the River Colorado by using on line maps, developing knowledge of site, situation and geographical location with a starting point in Downtown Chicago. The whole project is aimed at developing a wide range of geographical knowledge along with IT skills and the opportunity to improve writing techniques in preparation for higher level studies. I personally would use this resource for Year 9 groups in preparation for Key Stage 4 Geography. The History content makes it just that little bit more interesting.
