NEW OCR B Enquiring Minds Syllabus Year 9 11) The 7 Impacts of Climate Change PA WITH ANSWERS

NEW OCR B Enquiring Minds Syllabus Year 9 11) The 7 Impacts of Climate Change PA WITH ANSWERS

An improvement to the lesson designed to incorporate exam assessment. The aim of the lessons (usually 2) is to peer assess the presentations designed by the students. The starter activity is an assessment on the homework relating to the WWF page on carbon dioxide emissions. Alternatively, or use this as a second starter in lesson 2, you can use Geography Hangman. The peer assessment sheet is attached. I have provided a modelled example on the IWB slide whereby students take facts to build up knowledge on each of the 7 impacts of climate change and then RAG the students presenting. I have provided extension questions for the students seen below: Research the rise in sea level (page 60-61). Describe a social and environmental impact that results from rising sea level. [4 marks] Explain two ways in which people are affected by climate change (see you research and the one for sea level or other example) [4]. These have a mark scheme and ANSWERS for the student to self assess. Similarly, I have added a slide here with additional questions about Carbon Dioxide Emissions with ANSWERS to further develop students knowledge. The plenary is Taboo (sheet attached) and key word catch to test new literacy from this topic.

Year 8 Spring-Summer SOW 2017 Development 5) Ghana Fact File WITH ANSWERS

Year 8 Spring-Summer SOW 2017 Development 5) Ghana Fact File WITH ANSWERS

This lesson is an introduction to Ghana and to make students aware of the physical and human landscape. I use the Geog.3 (coffee cup version). The settler to the lesson is to create two questions to test the student's peers in the starter. This is a team-based game called Butt Head where students ask questions to win balls to throw at a cap worn on the student's head. I have put instructions on the slide. The main (seen opposite) is a series of questions to hook the students about the lack of lights in rural Ghana. The questions have marks and ANSWERS on the next slide to peer or self assess. The main activity in the lesson is to create a poster on Ghana as a fact file in pairs using page 10-15 of the Geog.1 book. There is an extension of an empathetic diary entry of resident living in poverty. The development is a conundrum using a keypad as a puzzle for students. The plenary is called 'Mr Right or Mr Wrong' whereby students have to judge whether the facts are right or wrong. ANSWERS are provided to self or peer assess.

MAP READING - A USEFUL SKILL FOR GEOGRAPHY - HISTORY AND ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES

MAP READING - A USEFUL SKILL FOR GEOGRAPHY - HISTORY AND ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES

The cover image (right) list three uses of this unit. It can be a ready made standalone unit concentrating on the skill of map reading. The inclusion of black and white and colour attachments provide flexibility in providing hard copies. The visual inclusions of drawings, maps and graphs provide ample opportunity for students to find, consider and provide answers to set questions. Project the maps in the series and discuss the questions in class. Provide the attachments to find out why the the 5th generation descendants of the pioneer settlers decided to leave the farm .However this unit could be used as an introduction to other units which examine the broader issues contained in the Murray-Darling Basin Plan - an issue very much in the current news (2017). For history students this unit touches on the issue of farmers who were "squatters" before the advent of land surveys and titles. For those involved in environmental studies this unit shows impact and change within a river system due to population increase, land use and technology changes. The attachments provide the guidelines for investigation and interpretation. Follow the McNab family through 5 generations of change which a revealed in the map series. Some of the answers are obvious but others may require debate. See how many of the changes your students can discover in the "spot the difference page". Maps reveal visually information that would take many words to provide.

Investigating Cities - Shenzhen, China

Investigating Cities - Shenzhen, China

This is a 4-page worksheet that gets students to investigate the city of Shenzhen in China which has grown from little more than a fishing village in the 1970s to an expanding metropolis of 11 million people today. Shenzhen is commonly known as the "Silicon Valley of China". The worksheet has some mapping questions that look at Shenzen's location and changes in land use over time, some statistics on the climate of the city, and a series of questions on the growth of the city and its impact that can be answered from the BBC News (link is provided). An answer key is provided for teachers. The worksheet would be useful for the Australian Curriculum unit on Liveability and for those jurisdictions where urban development is a focus, perhaps from lower to upper high school Geography.
