Plate tectonics (Galapagos study)

Plate tectonics (Galapagos study)

Plate tectonics is the concept that explains the movement of continents across hundreds of millions of years and a method for predicting areas at risk of volcanoes and earthquakes. Investigate more here. Suitable for KS3. Linked to current National Curriculum. You can find more plans and activities on the Discovering Galapagos website.

TECTONIC HAZARDS - 12. Reducing the risk of earthquakes

TECTONIC HAZARDS - 12. Reducing the risk of earthquakes

This lesson has been designed to address 'Tectonic Hazards', as per the AQA GCSE Geography specification. This lesson explores the ways in which we can reduce the risks of earthquakes. The PowerPoint is clearly structured with; - Starter tasks to assess prior knowledge and link to the lessons learning through a mystery style task. - Clear learning objectives and success criteria linked to AQA specification. - Key new information with activities with supporting hand-outs at the end of the PPT, this includes an exam style question to apply learning. - Plenary - consolidation and review of learning task.

TECTONIC HAZARDS - 11. Living at risk

TECTONIC HAZARDS - 11. Living at risk

This lesson has been designed to address 'Tectonic Hazards', as per the AQA GCSE Geography specification. This lesson explores why people continue to live in areas at risk from tectonic activity. The PowerPoint is clearly structured with; - Starter tasks to assess prior knowledge and link to the lessons learning. - Clear learning objectives and success criteria linked to AQA specification. - Key new information with activities with supporting hand-outs at the end of the PPT - the main task being an around the room activity with information to stick up around the room. - Plenary - consolidation and review of learning task.

TECTONIC HAZARDS - 9 + 10. Earthquake case study + comparison (San Francisco + Haiti)

TECTONIC HAZARDS - 9 + 10. Earthquake case study + comparison (San Francisco + Haiti)

This lesson has been designed to address 'Tectonic Hazards', as per the AQA GCSE Geography specification. There are 2 lessons, 1 to induce and research the San Francisco case study and then the 2nd to compare San Francisco to Haiti. The PowerPoint is clearly structured with; - Starter tasks to assess prior knowledge and link to the lessons learning. - Clear learning objectives and success criteria linked to AQA specification. - Key new information with hyperlinked video resources and activities with supporting hand-outs at the end of the PPT. The comparison lesson includes exam practice with supporting mark scheme and peer marking guidance. - Plenary - consolidation and review of learning task.

TECTONIC HAZARDS - 8. Responses to Haiti earthquake

TECTONIC HAZARDS - 8. Responses to Haiti earthquake

This lesson has been designed to address 'Tectonic Hazards', as per the AQA GCSE Geography specification. This lesson explores the responses to the Haiti earthquake. The PowerPoint is clearly structured with; - Starter tasks with responses to an image of the Haiti earthquake. - Clear learning objectives and success criteria linked to AQA specification. - Key new information with hyperlinked video resources and activities about the Haiti earthquake and then the immediate and long-term responses - the hyperlinked video is a vimeo resource and does have some images of the dead, although in relation to images/videos linked to Haiti this is mild but I have attached a warning to the slide. - Plenary - consolidation and review of learning task

Plate tectonics + Volcanoes

Plate tectonics + Volcanoes

I used this lesson for an interview lesson and the basis was to review and recap plate tectonics and then do a whistle stop tour of a volcanic eruption case study (Mt Merapi). Within the lesson convection currents (as a starter task) and then onward the structure of the earth and briefly plate tectonics are briefly reviewed and explored using hyperlinked video and maps/images. The volcanic eruption case study is introduced, as with a reminder on primary and secondary effects with a consolidation learning task to categorised some key primary and secondary effects. On the supporting differentiated workshet there is a challenge task. Plenary task - to summarise learning from the lesson. FYI - the lesson was a huge success and I got the job!

NATURAL HAZARDS - 2. Risk factors

NATURAL HAZARDS - 2. Risk factors

This lesson has been designed to introduce students to factors affecting risk linked to natural hazards, as per the AQA GCSE Geography specification. - Starter tasks to assess prior knowledge, with supporting hand-outs at the end of the PPT. - Clear learning objectives and success criteria linked to AQA specification. - Variety of activities and new information to introduce factors affecting risk. - Main learning task a card sort activity that is provided free by AQA, hence why this resource is free despite my inclusion of my own resources and formatting (differentiated worksheets found at the end of the PPT). - Plenary - consolidation and review of learning task.

NATURAL HAZARDS - 1. Defining natural hazards

NATURAL HAZARDS - 1. Defining natural hazards

This lesson has been designed to introduce students to natural hazards, as per the AQA GCSE Geography specification. This lesson usually takes two lessons to deliver. The PowerPoint is clearly structured with; - Starter tasks to assess prior knowledge, with supporting hand-outs at the end of the PPT. Following lesson starter is a clues word-search (included as an attached word document). - Clear learning objectives and success criteria linked to AQA specification. - Variety of activities and new information to introduce natural hazards and key definitions, with supporting examples. - Main learning task is Internet based reseach and includes a differentiated worksheet for students to complete (on a seperate PPT document included). - Plenary - consolidation and review of learning task.

Introduction To Earthquake

Introduction To Earthquake

Introduction To Earthquake Learning objectives: At the end of the lesson the students should be able to : (i) Define the term earthquakes (ii) Explain the causes of earthquakes (iii) Give examples of earthquakes (iv) Explain the effects and impacts of earthquakes (v) Examine the case study on an earthquake in an LEDC and MEDC This slide examines the topic and should be used to teach students of geography and environmental management in KS 3,4 & 5 . It is written, with graphically illustration and revision questions at the end meant for assessment. A must have for teachers of geography and environmental management in KS 3-5.
