Year 7 Summer Homework

Year 7 Summer Homework

This is a booklet based on the i-spy books where students get points for spotting things in and around their homes and beyond. It covers all the chapters from the geog.1 textbook from OUP, and is designed to be a homework project for Year 7 students to complete during the summer holidays. For each item they find they get points and these points lead to house points, merits, credits, stars (whichever reward system your school uses): I even gave students a certificate for completing it. There are 20 pages which can be printed as an A5 booklet or you can choose which pages you want to use as each chapter from the textbook as a set of activities: my version only has 16 pages as there are some chapters that I don’t get time to cover. There is a word puzzle and a place for the students to keep a record of their points as they collect them, I have a place for parents to sign confirmation that students actually did achieve what they say just in case you get a student that makes it up. There are spaces for images, due to copyright I have removed the pictures that I use, but they can easily by added. The only major thing is the Tourist Information key from an OS map: they will need that.

WJEC/ Eduqas 2016 SPEC- Theme 3- Lesson 7- Managing Tectonic Hazards and Assessed Homework

WJEC/ Eduqas 2016 SPEC- Theme 3- Lesson 7- Managing Tectonic Hazards and Assessed Homework

This is the 7th lesson in the 3rd theme of the new WJEC/Eduqas 2016 specification for geography. This lesson looks at different strategies that can be used to predict volcanic eruptions, what hazard mapping is and the 3P’s. There is an assessed homework that pupils should complete as homework and this is usually given out and handed in before the revision session, so during the revision session I would go through the assessed homework and anything else that pupils didn’t understand. The assessed homework would count towards their overall grade for that theme. A detailed markscheme and grade boundaries are included.

GCSE courtcase L'Aquila earthquake prediction AQA specification

GCSE courtcase L'Aquila earthquake prediction AQA specification

An updated popular resource which had a lot of downloads but only one piece of feedback. This lesson is a role-play/drama activity based on the news story of the scientists in the dock (Oct 2012) about how Italian siesmologists are on trial for not predicting L’Aquila (2009). The information used has come from BBC articles and videos. The powerpoint has notes on how to set the lesson up whilst the word documents are the witness statements and judges questions. It is important that you have done previous work on earthquake prediction, but that they DON’T KNOW what happened with this trial in real life until they’ve been through the courtcase. Works well with top set yr9 or even GCSE. This is a lesson to invite the Head to sit in and be a judge!
