Tectonic hazards

Tectonic hazards

This 7 WEEK full scheme of work provides all the teaching and learning materials needed, to deliver the AQA tectonic hazards specification for exams from 2018 onwards. This high quality package starts with an insight into natural hazards and hazard risk. The scheme then investigate the structure of the Earth and plate tectonics, to provide the required background knowledge. The location of both earthquakes and volcanoes in relation to plate boundaries is covered; as well as the physical processes taking place at constructive, conservative, destructive and collision boundaries. Case studies of earthquakes in two counties of contrasting levels of development is included, to show both primary and secondary effects, as well as short and long term responses. Pupils are later taught why people continue to live near these hazards despite the risks, and consider how monitoring, prediction and protection can mitigate their effects.
