Sustainable tourism assessment

Sustainable tourism assessment

This is a short ( 3 mins approx) mid-unit test to check students understanding on the concept of sustainable tourism. It could also easily be set as a classwork or homework task. Students must show they can define sustainable tourism, explain the negative impacts of mass tourism, and annotate an ecolodge with its sustainable features. This was originally written for year 9 as an introduction to the Unit 1 travel and Tourism Btec course ( and unit 1 examination). It could also easily be used for Ks3 Geography. Would go well with my other resource on ’ Sustainable tourism & Ecolodges’.

To Plastic or Paper Bag... A matter of waste... Version  2.0

To Plastic or Paper Bag... A matter of waste... Version 2.0

To Plastic or Paper Bag… A matter of waste… Nersion 2.0 Plastic bag bans appear to be on the way to a supermarket near you or around the rest of the world. Resource investigates this problem. A list of web links are given to start pupils on their own research. I have also included a series of links to YouTube Vids - I would watch the documentary and then have pupils rate the social media comments. Do they like or dislike them. Then each has to be reasoned with a reply. I have tried to use as near as possible actual comments. Sorry to those people who have already downloaded this, but I really felt that it could do with a feedback page from a colleague/friend of the pupil completing the worksheet

Rainforest Protection and Use Decision Making Task

Ideal for KS3 or KS4. The worksheet deals with land use in the Indonesian rainforest and asks pupils to read about the standpoints of different groups including miners, farmers, local council members and others and make a decision on how to use the rainforest most effectively. This culminates in pupils using a map of Borneo (given on the worksheet) to zone different land uses in the most appropriate places and explain why they chose each area. The sheet can work as an activity on its own or could be used to scaffold a debate task. Resource created for the Environmental Management part of Geography IGCSE Theme 3 but could be used at various levels as the language in the task is not too challenging.

WJEC/ WJEC Eduqas 2016 SPEC- Theme 5- Lesson 17- Sustainable Management of Savannah and Assessed H/W

This lesson is the 17th lesson in the fifth theme of the new WJEC/ WJEC Eduqas 2016 specification for geography. This lesson looks at how the savannah can be managed sustainably. The 10 minutes on sheet helps students engage and recap on previous lessons work on the savannah- the sheet idea came from Jen Monk. Most of the activities are on the powerpoint. As this is the last teaching lesson, pupils will as homework have to complete the assessed homework, which helps them to focus their revision on areas of weakness after it is marked. The markscheme is detailed which will help you as teachers to be able to mark the assessed homework with ease. The other homework is to research a small scale ecosystem of sand dunes (this can obviously be changed). Any feedback on this lesson would be a great help for future lessons uploaded onto here.
