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.

Card Sort: Bangladesh Floods

Card Sort: Bangladesh Floods

This card sort activity has been designed to help students understand the ‘causes’ and ‘effects’ of the Bangladesh floods as well as well the ‘solutions’ that the government has tried to put in place to help manage them. It is designed to be used along side any main stream textbook or video and focuses mainly on the floods in 2004 and 2007. I have also built in some extension exercises which get student to classify the causes of the floods into ‘climate’, ‘human’ and ‘relief’ factors as well as to try and assess how successful the ‘solutions’ that have been put in place have been between 2004 and 2007. When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a fully editable Microsoft document which includes a learning objective, instructions, three heading cards labelled ‘Causes’ , ‘Effects’ and ‘Solutions’ as well as thirty four information cards that can be sorted under them. The document is designed so that you can easily add or remove any of the information cards. This resource makes a great starter or plenary to be completed in pairs or groups. It can be cut up by the students or placed into envelopes for use with several classes or even set as a piece of homework. Alternatively, your students could draw a table with the three headings cards and copy out the information under them. The aims and objectives are: Theme: Flooding Know: What are the causes and effects of the Bangladesh Floods? Understand: Which causes are linked to climate, human and relief? Evaluate: Why have the solutions focused on managing the effects of the floods rather than their causes? WILF - What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: The causes and effects of the Bangladesh Floods? Explain: Which causes are linked to climate, human and relief? Analyse: Why have the solutions focused on managing the effects of the floods rather than their causes?

KS3 Geography Maths Revision: Bloodhound SSC Mapping Activity 11-14/KS3

KS3 Geography Maths Revision: Bloodhound SSC Mapping Activity 11-14/KS3

This is a revision, interactive activity, where pupils read a variety of maps, use scales, symbols, and plot and plan routes. Watch the introductory video, explain the rules, then assemble to class into small groups. Give each group a challenge card, they work together to solve it. If they answer right, they are awarded points and given a new challenge, if they are wrong send them back with some advice to improve their answers. Each Powerpoint slide may be printed out, (I recommend 5 copies of each challenge) and laminated if you wish, to create the challenge cards. Or you may prefer to keep it as a didactic presentation to introduce the topics with more guidance. Differentiation: Challenge 3 is a straight forward card sort, Challenge 5 an in-depth project requiring independent research. National Curriculum Links: KS3 Geography: Build on their knowledge of globes, maps and atlases and apply and develop this knowledge routinely in the classroom and in the field. Interpret Ordnance Survey maps in the classroom and the field, including using grid references and scale, topographical and other thematic mapping, and aerial and satellite photographs. Use Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to view, analyse and interpret places and data.

Flooding Case Study Sheet

Flooding Case Study Sheet

This resource should be used in conjunction with the Channel 4 documentary ‘Britain’s Worst Weather: Flood’. It provides a basic structure for students to note the key components of five of the UK’s major flood events. Students found it exceptionally helpful to have a number of different case studies, broken down into their key parts. This resource can be easily built upon by then giving students a selection of mock exam questions based on the content on the sheet.
