GEOGRAPHY NEW GCSE THE LIVING WORLD FULL SOW

GEOGRAPHY NEW GCSE THE LIVING WORLD FULL SOW

This is the entire Living World Spec for the new Geography GCSE. The lessons are well planned out covering all content required. Exam questions are built into the topic using both self, peer and teacher assessment. The tasks are imaginative and use a range of teaching strategies such as Sticky teaching, talkless teaching and growth mind set. I taught this to my year 10 class last year and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Lesson 1 -Introduction to ecosystems Lesson 2- Global ecosystems Lesson 3- Rain forest ecosystem Lesson 4-The Causes and Effects of deforestation Lesson 5- Managing Rain forests Sustainably Lesson 6- Hot Desert Ecosystem Lesson 7- Opportunities in the Western Desert Lesson 8- Challenges in the Western Desert Lesson 9- The causes of desertification Lesson 10- Managing desertification

OCR A Level Geography - Disease Dilemmas Part 1b

OCR A Level Geography - Disease Dilemmas Part 1b

This set of resources and activities covers the content from the OCR A Level Geography specification as follows: There is a relationship between physical factors and the prevalence of disease which can change over time. • Global patterns of temperature, precipitation, relief and water sources and how they affect patterns of disease. • Physical factors can influence vectors of disease such as the prevalence of mosquitoes in warm, humid areas close to water sources. • How seasonal variations influence disease outbreaks such as periods of drought or monsoon rains. • Climate change provides the conditions for emerging infectious diseases to spread to new places and new hosts such as West Nile virus, tsetse fly and tick seasons. • The conditions for zoonotic infectious diseases such as bird flu or rabies to establish and spread from animals to humans. The reading handouts are structured to cover each of the above bullet points in detail, and evaluative links are made throughout. Th activities are designed to challenge students to draw together knowledge from these readings (and can also be used in conjunction with Part 1a - also on TES). Many different maps and statistics are included - no extra research/resources would be needed.

Tectonic hazards

Tectonic hazards

This 7 WEEK full scheme of work provides all the teaching and learning materials needed, to deliver the AQA tectonic hazards specification for exams from 2018 onwards. This high quality package starts with an insight into natural hazards and hazard risk. The scheme then investigate the structure of the Earth and plate tectonics, to provide the required background knowledge. The location of both earthquakes and volcanoes in relation to plate boundaries is covered; as well as the physical processes taking place at constructive, conservative, destructive and collision boundaries. Case studies of earthquakes in two counties of contrasting levels of development is included, to show both primary and secondary effects, as well as short and long term responses. Pupils are later taught why people continue to live near these hazards despite the risks, and consider how monitoring, prediction and protection can mitigate their effects.
