A Level; Arctic - water and carbon cycle

A Level; Arctic - water and carbon cycle

This bundle contains a series of whole lessons and resources designed for the new A2 Level course. It looks at the Tundra environment before considering the impacts on the water and carbon cycles. Next it considers the impact of gas and oil production and exploration on the water and carbon cycle. Finally, there are strategies to reduce these impacts.

A Level; Arctic - Strategies to reduce the impacts of oil  production on the water and carbon cycles

A Level; Arctic - Strategies to reduce the impacts of oil production on the water and carbon cycles

The includes two lessons. In the first lesson students will research into strategies implemented to reduce the impact of the oil and gas industry on the water and carbon cycles. The second will involve students giving presentations, with PowerPoint presentations and information sheets. The students are split into six groups, each with a strategy such as insulated ice and gravel pads. They split up the three tasks (presentation, speech and information sheet) within their group and are given information about what to research and how they will be marked. All resources are included at the end of the PowerPoint.

A Level; Arctic - Impacts of Gas and oil Production in the Tundra on the water and carbon cycles

A Level; Arctic - Impacts of Gas and oil Production in the Tundra on the water and carbon cycles

Firstly, students are introduced via photos to the causes of permafrost melting in the Tundra. Next the students are given 4-5 impacts and asked to undertake research into these impacts, specifically focusing on the Prudhoe Bay. They are required to explain these, using factual information and then to annotate their findings onto a diagram. Finally, students are asked to evaluate whether the impacts of melting permafrost have a bigger impact on the water or carbon cycle, justifying their explanation.

A Level; Arctic - Oil and gas in the Arctic Tundra - decision making exercise

A Level; Arctic - Oil and gas in the Arctic Tundra - decision making exercise

This is a debate / decision making exercise and should take place over a couple of lessons, one to plan and one to undertake the debate. Firstly, there are two video clips about the oil industry in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska in order to develop the students sense of place. Next, based on a geofile (website for access supplied) students should evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of oil and gas production and consumption in Prudhoe Bay. After that students are split into 4 groups. Each group is given a character card with details about their viewpoint and a writing frame. Using the writing frame and geofile students should develop a speech about their views on oil and gas production and exploration in Prudhoe Bay. This will take 2 lessons. In the third lesson the groups should give their presentations. whilst speaking sheets are provided to take notes on the viewpoints of others and writing down questions to ask them. After every speech undertake a discussion activity based on what has been said. Then debate the two key questions once everyone has spoken. Next the students will be asked to suggest compromises and work towards and agreement, before final voting. AT the end pupils will be asked to complete and opinion line task for both the questions and to feedback the reasons for their opinions. The resources are deigned to increase pupil engagement. All resources are included at the end of the PowerPoint.
