Teacher Pack: Coastal Engineering and management

Teacher Pack: Coastal Engineering and management

In this pack you will find a range of ideas, activities, resources and lesson plans, designed to allow you to engage students on the topic of Coastal Management & Engineering, facilitate learning and maximise understanding of natural coastal processes and management strategies for the local beaches, foreshores and dunes on the Gold Coast. Resources are created for targeted year groups and include clear curriculum links. Coastlines are dynamic environments, constantly changing as a result of coastal processes and varying weather patterns. Under calm conditions, the sand may shift just a millimetre or so and during an extreme storm event, beaches can change rapidly as sand is moved offshore. Historically, storm events have driven innovation in coastal engineering in order to protect our city. However, as population has grown on the Gold Coast, so too has development along our beaches. A range of coastal management techniques are being implemented across the Gold Coast to meet the varying challenges faced by each area, depending on environmental conditions and the extent of development. The resources in this pack allow you and your students to explore Coastal Management & Engineering on the Gold Coast, through engaging and thought provoking activities.

Indonesia Scheme of Work

Indonesia Scheme of Work

A short scheme of work on Indonesia. Targeted at low ability (SEN) year 7 but easily adapted (with some differentiation worksheet options included and suggestions offered). It could work well for primary students as well as KS3. This covered about 10 lessons and was easily extended by using additional tasks - again, some suggested. The unit explores the basic physical geography of Indonesia and looks at tectonic plates leading to a bit of research on the 2004 tsunami. The created some lovely work from this that resulted in a colourful display. The students also read Running Wild alongside completing this task.
