Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 15- Impact on wellbeing

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 15- Impact on wellbeing

Lesson 15 for The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security. Looking at Enquiry Question 3. Students start by focusing on an exam question that they should be able to answer by the end of the lesson. They look at precipitation and river regimes (using a journal article for challenge), and then make notes on the Arctic impact using the attached sheet. They then look at how it will affect human wellbeing and categorise the impacts into s/e/e. HW to plan the exam question but could be done in lesson as I think this will run over 1 hour.
