Conserving Nature: KS3 - Dam Dilemma

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Dam Dilemma

Technological development in low income countries such as Uganda is important for improving the economy and providing a better quality of life for its population. However, quite often these developments carry a risk of negatively affecting the environment and the lives of local people. The work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) aims to ensure that new developments not only ‘do no harm’, but actively bring benefit to both biodiversity and local communities. In this activity students look at the positive and negative impacts of building more hydroelectric dams on Ugandan rivers. They use this information to write a balanced argument. Learning outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and how it can protect biodiversity loss Students learn to write a balanced argument, considering environmental, economic and social issues See more at: https://www.oxfordsparks.ox.ac.uk/content/conserving-nature

(6 resources) ks3 gcse 1-9 geography synoptic food resource production population water people

(6 resources) ks3 gcse 1-9 geography synoptic food resource production population water people

A super lesson that explores the impact the global food production could have upon the planet. Issues such as water, transportation & population growth are covered. A great synoptic task. GCSE style question added to test understanding. 2 styles of teacher feedback (marking) included to save time. Just print off & do yourself or get pupils to peer assess. Students use the information sheet (no need for books) to create an information sheet. I normally use a large piece of sugar paper & get pupils to work on their own. I would recommend printing the information sheet in colour & in A3 & laminating it, to be used again. The cartoon strip is best in A3 too. Links well to much of the new 1-9 specification and was used as part of the KS3 SOW.
