This lesson is based around the new AQA A Level specification. This is a lesson in the unit titled Water and Carbon Cycles. The main aim of this lesson is to cover the following element of the specification: 3.1.1.4 – The key role of the carbon and water stores and cycles in supporting life on Earth with particular reference to climate. The relationship between the water cycle and carbon cycle in the atmosphere. The role of feedbacks within and between cycles and their link to climate change and implications for life on Earth.

NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

The dissected sandstone plateau of the Southern Lost City of Limmen National Park provide a distinctive habitat for a range of native wildlife. This unit has a focus on survival and adaptation to this area. The Limmen National Park was proclaimed in 2012 and research is in its early years. Those with an interest in the natural environment who ventured into the area when it was used as for cattle raising (pastoral leases) made lists of wildlife observed. In the environment within and around the Southern Lost City they began to record that certain native species were increasingly difficult to sight. Coinciding with these observations were the increasing sightings of intruding feral animals such as cane toads, feral cats and feral pigs. Their conclusion was that the feral intruders were having an affect on the survival rates of native wildlife by habitat modification and food resource reduction. Future research into this situation will shed further light on these impacts. Of particular concern were the reductions of 3 species covered in this unit. They have reached the "endangered" list and were heading for extinction within this area. Of particular concern were sightings of feral cats. Though not yet numerous in this park their numbers were likely to increase and their efficient hunting and killing skills would place native bird and small mammal species under threat. The feral cat situation is covered in another unit entitled "The feral cat menace - impact on Australian native wildlife". This unit can stand alone as an introduction to the impact of feral animals on native wildlife. It cat be used to introduce the topic of tha considerable problem caused by the increasing population and spread of feral cats which are regarded as the top predator affecting native Australian wildlife. That unit will also consider programmes carried out by the AWC (Australian Wildlife Conservancy) to conserve and protect native wildlife of Australia and avoid (if possible)adding names to the list of species that have become extinct. The worksheets (colour and black and white) are included so that hard copies can be distributed.

Landforms Scavenger Hunt Activity

Landforms Scavenger Hunt Activity

Landforms Scavenger Hunt Activity: At the end of this Scavenger hunt students will be able to learn about the various Landforms with science of their formation along with its useful vocabulary. Its a great tool to review any subject units. Colorful and neat images on cards will create a deep interest among kids to perform the game with great visualization. Task cards are a great alternative to worksheets. They allow students for random movement in the classroom, which brain research shows increases achievement! It works well with partners or individually. Preview images may have reduced picture quality due to jpeg file. But original .pdf file contains clear images. How to Use: Print the 28 Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock or brightly -coloured paper and cut them apart along the black lines. Make copies of the Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet. Each student needs a copy. Place the Scavenger Hunt cards around your classroom where students will be able to find them. You can put them on chairs, on the computer keyboard, on the back of your classroom door, on the sides of student desks, on the chalkboard or wherever you like. Students have to search the room and find all of the sentence cards to answer the questions. You can differentiate by having students work alone or with a classmate. © 2015 Brilliant Classes This purchase is for one teacher and for classroom use only. All rights reserved.

Rivers - Identifying characteristics of the three stages of a river

Rivers - Identifying characteristics of the three stages of a river

This resource is aimed at upper KS2 or lower KS3 children and is part of a wider Rivers unit (see Rivers - medium term plan). In the presentation, children are first introduced to the three stages of a river - the upper course, middle course and lower course - and some of the key features of each. It then challenges children to think about the characteristics of rivers in these different stages (e.g. altitude, channel width, water speed and amount of erosion). The related activity asks children to match descriptions to each stage of a river. It is differentiated two ways: MA/UA - Children have descriptions which they match to either the upper, middle or lower course of a river. LA - Children have colour coded descriptions to make comparing them easier. If you like this resource, please review it. I will happily send you a free resource of your choice in return for a review or useful suggestions/feedback. Contact me at eddiebray@yahoo.co.uk

Assessment for Year 3 geography and history objectives linked to Active Planet/Volcanoes topic

Assessment for Year 3 geography and history objectives linked to Active Planet/Volcanoes topic

This resource can be used either at the start of a topic as a baseline or at the end of a topic to assess learning. The questions relate to different Year 3 geography and history objectives such as identifying the equator, naming the 7 continents, comparing lives of people in the past etc. Most of the questions place these skills in the context of volcanoes, e.g. Pompeii This resource may also give you ideas for linking objectives to this topic and activities you could do in the classroom.

AUSTRALIAN LANDFORM - THE DISSECTED SEDIMENTARY SANDSTONE PLATEAU OF LIMMEN

AUSTRALIAN LANDFORM - THE DISSECTED SEDIMENTARY SANDSTONE PLATEAU OF LIMMEN

This is a unit that fits into the study of landforms. If you have geomorpholgy as part of your course then this unit will be a useful addition. This unit can stand alone or it could be used as an interest in tourism within the newly proclaimed Limmen National Park of the Northern Territory of Australia. Take your students off the main unsealed central road of the Limmen National Park and you will find the so-called “Lost Southern City”. It has formed over 150 million years through the processes and actions of weathering, transportation, erosion. The diagram sequence will explain the formation of the sandstone columns, pillars and intervening valleys. The photo interpretation worksheet (colour or black and white) is added to check the level of understanding of your students. If you are searching for a unit that is relatively short, contains interest and isa ready-to-handout package then this unit will ease your pressure of preparation time. Photographs, diagrams and maps are included.

ks3 gcse 1-9 weathering erosion lesson biological freeze thaw solution chemical mechanical

ks3 gcse 1-9 weathering erosion lesson biological freeze thaw solution chemical mechanical

A lesson that explores the different processes of erosion. Students use the information sheet (no need for books) to create a cartoon strip. I would recommend printing the information sheet in colour & in A3 & laminating it, to be used again. The cartoon strip is best in A3 too. There is a basis test sheet, but it’s not really needed. Links well to much of the new 1-9 specification and was used as part of the KS3 SOW.

The Amazing Race Geog Revision

The Amazing Race Geog Revision

This is a Geography Revision tool for GCSE. Students have to guess specific locations (previously studied) then complete 1 of 2 tasks in order to move on to the next location. There are also road block tasks where the winner can nominate a team to complete BOTH tasks in the next leg. This is a 6 leg journey covering The Philippines (Typhoon Haiyan) UK (Birmingham opportunities) Pakistan (Thar Desert - adaptations and food webs) India (Mumbai/Dharavi) DRC (Nyiragongo) Kiribati (Climate change) It does take a lot of time to set up but well worth it! I have already started to create a second one as the kids enjoyed it so much. included is all activities needed to complete plus blank templates. They come in an unprotected format so you can adapt to fit your SOL. Enjoy
