Thousands of people (including British nationals) have been affected by hurricanes this hurricane season. There is never a better opportunity to teach about hurricanes whether or not it's on your LS for T1. Here we have three (3) lessons that explore the science behind hurricane formation, an analysis of the social and economic impact of hurricanes and finally a look at ways hurricanes can be managed to minimise the loss of lives. All the resources to deliver the lessons are included with the lessons. Just download and teach.

NEW OCR B Enquiring Minds Syllabus Year 9 12) The Impacts of Climate Change WITH ANSWERS

NEW OCR B Enquiring Minds Syllabus Year 9 12) The Impacts of Climate Change WITH ANSWERS

This lesson is designed as a group-based lesson for students to create case studies for their folders. The groups focus on different case studies; a surplus of water in the UK, a deficit of water in the UK and Tuvulu suffering from climate change. The idea is when they are complete to take the three best examples and create a fact file for each student. The textbooks I use is the OCB textbook and the Hodder one(page 56-57) for the OCR B syllabus. The lesson begins with the students assigned to groups. Each activity carries a points system for behaviour management- students can lose or gain points. The team with the most points win a reward at the end of the lesson. The settler (seen opposite) encourages the students to answer a 3 mark question using SEE analysis. The main is there to guide the students. ANSWERS are included. The starter is a keypad conundrum whereby the students need to use the phone key pad to work out the question and to shout the answer for 5 points, The ANSWER is include in the notes on the PowerPoint slide. The mini-plenary activity for higher ability learners is to answer the source-based question: Describe how the UK’s climate will change in the future. Use information from maps B-D in your description. [4] There are ANSWERS which can be peer assessed on the following slide. The main activity is to produce group concept maps on the three case studies listed above. Each team has different role cards (attached) that they complete within the group. The aim is to create a detailed case study using the template and be able to convey this back to the class through the development activity of group geographical hot seating. There is a mini-plenary of group charades for bonus points. The plenary is another mystery activity in the form of famous faces to work out the question and to give the answer. This ANSWER is included in the PowerPoint slide in the notes section.
