GCSE 9-1; Ecosystems case study - Value of  the Peruvian rainforests & human threats to biodiversity

GCSE 9-1; Ecosystems case study - Value of the Peruvian rainforests & human threats to biodiversity

This lesson is part of a series of lessons that can be bought as a bundle. In this lesson the students are asked to think first about how a range of biotic and abiotic factors in the rainforest are interdependent. Some are modelled for the students, who will need to add to the diagram. Next the students are required to locate the Peruvian Amazon and note down some facts about it, as background information to their case study. Next the students are asked to complete a top and tail activity to identify the value of the rainforests to humans. The main activity of the lesson involves the students working in small groups to interpret a range of images about 4 threats to biodiversity (gas production, oil production, gold mining and forest clearance for farm land) before independently writing their own PEE paragraphs. There is a writing frame and set of connectives to help the students to structure their written work if they need it. Finally there is a mark scheme to allow the students/teach to assess the students work.

GCSE 9-1; Ecosystems- tropical rainforest water cycle and nutrient cycle

GCSE 9-1; Ecosystems- tropical rainforest water cycle and nutrient cycle

This lesson is part of a series of lessons available as a bundle. The lesson starts by reminding the students about the water cycle, which they will have studied previously. Next they are read a description of a the weather during a day in the rainforest, which they will use to construct a timeline. this will lead into an explanation of convectional rainfall by the teacher, which is support by diagrams and a video clip. After that the students will demonstrate their understanding by annotating a diagram. Next, pupils will annotate a diagram of the water cycle in the rainforest. After that a video clip and a range of diagrams about the nutrient cycle is included. Students should interpret these independently to create their own nutrient cycle diagram. Finally, there is a quiz to test the pupils knowledge of what they have learned. All resources are provided at the end of the PowerPoint presentation.
