Cold Environments - An Introduction for AQA GCSE 9-1

Cold Environments - An Introduction for AQA GCSE 9-1

This lesson is designed to introduce the polar ice caps and tundra biomes to GCSE level students. It starts by looking at the distribution of these biomes, then looks at the climate, the flora and the fauna that are found there. The presentation then gets students to think about the structure of the soil in the tundra and about the problems people might have when the soil is constantly freezing and thawing. There are some maps, graphs, diagrams and images that could form the basis for further work.

China's Climate

China's Climate

As China is such a large country it’s not surprising to find that the climate varies from place to place and that these variations have different impacts of people’s lives. These worksheets help students to understand climate graphs, how to read ad draw them. They also give them a chance to develop their own graph and peer mark eachothers ideas with supporting comments.
