National Day of the People's Republic of China - PowerPoint + 31 Ways To Use This Resource In Class

National Day of the People's Republic of China - PowerPoint + 31 Ways To Use This Resource In Class

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different materials being shown in each of the photos. I have added a second PowerPoint presentation which shows you how you could use this teaching resource in 31 different, fun ways in the classroom to make sure you get the most out of this teaching resource. I also create a Chinese Landscape Painting book for students. The basics are laid out to help them and then they can use water colours to complete the picture. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about China. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different Chinese activities. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

WATER AND CARBON CYCLES-End of topic assessment

WATER AND CARBON CYCLES-End of topic assessment

This assessment has been created to test the learning of the AQA Geography A-Level topic 'Water and Carbon'. The assessment is made up of my own questions, which are written in the style of the sample material shared by AQA. I have also constructed a mark scheme, where again I looked at the AQA example and then tailored it to the questions asked.

Climate change - Global temperature changes, evidence for CC and natural causes - Eduqas and AQA

Climate change - Global temperature changes, evidence for CC and natural causes - Eduqas and AQA

This lesson covers an overview to changing global temperatures where students describe the data on the graph. This is then followed by looking at the various sources of evidence for climate change and students evaluate each and consolidate this with an examination question. Students then move on to look at natural causes of climate change and consider the validity of the theories. Students then consolidate their learning with a series of examination questions.
