GCSE Edexcel The American West: Lesson 4: How did the Plains Indians survive on the Great Plains?

GCSE Edexcel The American West: Lesson 4: How did the Plains Indians survive on the Great Plains?

This lesson requires students to assess the key factors that enabled the Plains Indians to survive in the Great Plains. The lessons begins with a quick intro to the harsh environment that exists on the Plains with a student-led task. The main activity is a group task (can be completed individually but I prefer group discussions and questioning). A warrior brotherhood needs to teach young recruits about survival on the Plains. They only have one hour to convey the key knowledge. Students assess four key factors, weigh up the importance of each by completing decision-making tasks & explaining their decisions before outlining how they would divide the 60 minute lesson. This lesson has plenty of scope for teacher questioning and critical thinking tasks. The lesson concludes with an exam style question (structure strips/ tips included). These lessons take many hours to plan and create, so reviews are greatly appreciated.

NINE-USA CITIES

NINE-USA CITIES

This presentation can be used for children between the ages of 9 and sixteen. There are fifty five slides and thirty nine pages of additional resource materials. I have selected the following cities because of their contrasting site, situation and geographical locations. They are: Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. This selection of cities offers extended studies in both Physical and Human Geography. Included in the slide notes and the resource file are suggested work challenges involving on line work, historical links, geographical writing skills, discussions and other map drawing exercises. The presentation can be targeted at nine and ten year old students but it will be necessary to use the shortened version of the script. Children between the age of eleven and fourteen should be able to cope well with most of the challenges. Key Stage 4 (fourteen to sixteen years) students involved in examinations will be able to link this resource with a large range of the exam topics. Some examples include: Boston and New York - Settlements, site, situation and geographical location. New Orleans - Flooding, Mississippi Drainage Basin, River features including deltas. Detroit - Industrial and population change. Chicago and Detroit - Location, Waterways and Trade, Glaciation and the Great Lakes. Los Angeles and San Francisco - Environmental Hazards and Tourism. Las Vegas - Desert environment, Water resources and the Entertainment Industry. Washington DC - Capital City, history, location, population, government and tourism. There are several IT challenges on offer that involve constructing a quiz word grid, following the course of the River Colorado by using on line maps, developing knowledge of site, situation and geographical location with a starting point in Downtown Chicago. The whole project is aimed at developing a wide range of geographical knowledge along with IT skills and the opportunity to improve writing techniques in preparation for higher level studies. I personally would use this resource for Year 9 groups in preparation for Key Stage 4 Geography. The History content makes it just that little bit more interesting.

Opium Wars' Impact - 20 page lesson pack

Opium Wars' Impact - 20 page lesson pack

This is one of my most detailed lessons and one which students love. After a quick starter activity about the significance of the poppy in British-Chinese relations the class read detailed background notes before being issued one of 23 character cards. These range from tea-magnate Thomas Twining to Confucius! In role the students then extract evidence which their character might use to explain how China became to be ruled by foreigners after the Opium Wars. I always follow this up with either a piece of extended writing or even better a debate. Please watch the short video clip attached to see this lesson in action. The lesson includes a separate plenary Power Point also. I hope your students will gain as much from this lesson as I know mine always do. Enjoy!
