Year 7 2017 SOW Spring Term Africa 7) Biomes of Africa [SEN and High ability] WITH ANSWERS

Year 7 2017 SOW Spring Term Africa 7) Biomes of Africa [SEN and High ability] WITH ANSWERS

This lesson centres around biomes of Africa. Each question within the PowerPoint has ANSWERS and relates to the NEW Geog.1 textbook at KS3 but in this lesson we use the documents attached. The lessons begins with a simple food chain for Africa. The second settler is called 'Street View' with students creating a food chain using key terms. This aims to introduce new terminology and is also suitable for low ability. Both activities have ANSWERS. Before the starter, to hook students into learning play them the video attached 'The Very Best of Walk on the Wild Side'. The starter is Continental Dash is using the World Map and post-it notes with the different biomes put on them. The students need to find the post-it notes and place on the World map in the correct place before the timer ends. Use the Geog.1 books to aid them or the IWB to aid low ability learners. This activity can be used as a settler the following lessons to recap learning. The main is a group-based activity (seen opposite). For low ability pair higher students with SEN. I target the roles with certain students but give higher ability more choice. The aim is to use the three different biomes attached as worksheets to create an A3 concept map in the students' group. There are role cards for the activity and a chance to find out the facts from the other biomes. I usually give two lessons to do this activity with mini-presentations (see my FREE presentation template). There is an extension activity for higher sets introducing them into distribution questions for GCSE with ANSWERS and SUCCESS CRITERIA. The other development is proclaim and explain in group presentations. The plenary is Anagrams with an Odd one out. ANSWERS are in the notes on the slide.

OCR A Level Geography - Disease Dilemmas Part 1b

OCR A Level Geography - Disease Dilemmas Part 1b

This set of resources and activities covers the content from the OCR A Level Geography specification as follows: There is a relationship between physical factors and the prevalence of disease which can change over time. • Global patterns of temperature, precipitation, relief and water sources and how they affect patterns of disease. • Physical factors can influence vectors of disease such as the prevalence of mosquitoes in warm, humid areas close to water sources. • How seasonal variations influence disease outbreaks such as periods of drought or monsoon rains. • Climate change provides the conditions for emerging infectious diseases to spread to new places and new hosts such as West Nile virus, tsetse fly and tick seasons. • The conditions for zoonotic infectious diseases such as bird flu or rabies to establish and spread from animals to humans. The reading handouts are structured to cover each of the above bullet points in detail, and evaluative links are made throughout. Th activities are designed to challenge students to draw together knowledge from these readings (and can also be used in conjunction with Part 1a - also on TES). Many different maps and statistics are included - no extra research/resources would be needed.
