Climate Change Scheme of work -  outstanding ofsted

Climate Change Scheme of work - outstanding ofsted

This is a topic that I have updated recently as a result of significant media attention. The lessons follow a logical structure and offer imaginative and creative ideas to help pupils understand all corners of the topic. Not only do pupils understand the causes and effects, they examine evidence as to whether or not climate change is real or a hoax. The lessons are as follows: Lesson 1- Intro to climate change Lesson 2- Climate Change, real or hoax Lesson 3- The Ice Age Debate Lesson 4- Worst Case Scenario Lesson 5,6- Impacts of Climate Change Lesson 7- Impacts on the UK This content is suitable for year 9 but is taught to a high level and is more than suitable to use for GCSE. Most content is taken from our GCSE lessons

A Level; case study of a rainforest - impacts of management on water and carbon cycles

A Level; case study of a rainforest - impacts of management on water and carbon cycles

Firstly students are introduced to shifting cultivation, as a sustainable way for tribes to live in the rainforest. Students are then asked to use the information provided to undertake comprehension activities on 3 schemes; reforestation, conservation and improvements in agriculture in the Amazon. there is also a youtube video link to accompany the conservation scheme. Students are provided with note taking sheets and should ensure their notes focus on the impacts of the 3 schemes on the carbon and water cycles. To finish students evaluate the 3 schemes before reaching a conclusion as to which is the most effective. This is part of a series of lessons and is available as a bundle.

A Level; case study of a rainforest - human factors affecting water and carbon cycles

A Level; case study of a rainforest - human factors affecting water and carbon cycles

To start students will be asked to recall the water and carbon cycles in the rainforest. They will then be asked to interpret graphs showing the rate of deforestation and the reasons for deforestation. Next are a series of photos which can be used to promote discussion about the reasons for deforestation. Students will then need to draw diagrams and take notes on the effects of human activity in the water and carbon cycles. Finally, they will be asked to evaluate whether the impact on the carbon or water cycles is greatest. More able students should be encouraged to bring in the idea of longer and shorter term impacts. This lesson is part of a series of lesson and can be purchased as a bundle.

A Level; case study of a rainforest - carbon cycles in the Amazon Rainforest

A Level; case study of a rainforest - carbon cycles in the Amazon Rainforest

This lesson will start by asking the students to recall the stores and flows in the carbon cycle. They will then be shown diagrams of the carbon cycle for the rainforest, tundra/taiga and deciduous forests. They will compare these and suggest reasons for the differences, before drawing their own carbon cycle to scale. They will be given information on carbon exchanges in the rainforest before identifying the impact of an individual tree on the carbon cycle, which will require them to apply the knowledge they have gained form the lesson. this lesson forms part of a series of lessons and is available as a bundle.
