Rivers - Understanding the impact of floods and droughts

Rivers - Understanding the impact of floods and droughts

This resource is aimed at upper KS2 or lower KS3 and is part of a wider Rivers unit (see ‘Rivers - medium term plan’). First the presentation asks children to look at rainfall patterns in the UK. It then goes on to investigate how flooding can occur when too much rain falls in a short period of time. Different types of flooding (e.g. tidal flooding) are also covered. Then children explore the consequences of too little rain - i.e. drought - and the effects this can have. In the comprehension activity, children answer questions based on a text called ‘Floods and Droughts’. It is differentiated two ways: LA: Easier comprehension questions with an extension (pre-reading the text is also recommended). MA/UA: Harder comprehension questions with an extension. If you like this resource, please review it. I will happily send you a free resource of your choice in return for a review or useful suggestions/feedback. Contact me at eddiebray@yahoo.co.uk

(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.
