Conserving Nature: KS4 - Uganda Case Study

Conserving Nature: KS4 - Uganda Case Study

Economic development in low income countries leads to significant social, environmental and cultural change. One scheme in Uganda is to increase electricity generation by building more hydroelectric dams. The work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) aims to ensure that new developments such as this not only ‘do no harm’, but actively bring benefit to both the environment and local communities. In this activity students use a range of resources to build a case study about the positive and negative impacts of this scheme. Learning Outcomes: Students learn about the environmental and social effects of an economic development initiative in a LIC. Students write a case study looking at the positive and negative impacts

Conserving Nature: KS4 - Conservation Conundrum

Conserving Nature: KS4 - Conservation Conundrum

Technological development in low income countries such as Uganda is important for improving the economy and providing a better quality of life for its population. However, quite often these developments carry a risk of negatively affecting the environment and the lives of local people. The work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) aims to ensure that new developments not only ‘do no harm’, but actively bring benefit to both biodiversity and local communities. In this activity students look at the positive and negative impacts of building more hydroelectric dams on Ugandan rivers. They use this information to write a balanced argument. Learning Outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and how it can protect biodiversity loss Students write a balanced argument, considering environmental, economic and social issues

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Development Decisions

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Development Decisions

The balance between providing resources for a growing and technologically advanced population and protecting biodiversity is an ever-increasing problem. In this activity, students gain an insight into the work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) and model the conflict between development and the needs of people and the environment. They role play a stakeholder meeting between local villagers and developers, mediated by conservation researchers, to see if they can come to an agreement on proposed development ideas. Learning Outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and why it is important Students discuss negative and positive environmental and social impacts of development to make a decision.

Thinking about the different ways we use water

Thinking about the different ways we use water

This resource is aimed at upper KS2 or lower KS3 and is part of a wider Rivers unit (see ‘Rivers - medium term plan’). The presentation asks children to think about all the different ways we use water and where we get it from. Are these uses necessary (needs) or luxury (wants)? Children then categorise these uses as commercial/industrial, agricultural, recreational or community. Lastly, they are asked to consider how we can balance human water requirements with those of Earth’s wildlife. In the activity children sort photos of different water uses into six different categories. The extension then challenges them to classify each water use as either necessary or luxury and explain their reasoning. 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

Card Sort: What were the arguments for and against pit closures in 1992?

Card Sort: What were the arguments for and against pit closures in 1992?

In late 1992, the UK government announced that it would begin a process to close its remaining 31 coal mines with the loss of 30,000 jobs. The government argued that Britain no longer needed British coal as it could import its energy sources such as a lot more cheaply from elsewhere. This led to a ‘Dash for Gas’ with Britain’s once mighty coal industry being shut down. There were many other benefits and downsides to closing the pits. This outstanding card sort is designed to help students understand and assess some of the arguments for and against closing the pits in 1992. It can be used as a starter, plenary or main activity to accompany any main stream text book or resource on this topic. The nature of the task means that it appeals to the full range of ability. When you purchase this resource, you will be able to download a single page Word Document which contains a learning objective, instructions, two heading cards as well as fourteen fully editable statements that can sorted under them. I have also linked in video clip from the parliamentary debate on this issue with a speech from Tony Ben, which are worthwhile watching with your students, depending on their ability. The aims of this lesson / activity are: Know: Why did the UK government decide to close its remaining coal mines in 1992? Understand: What were the arguments for and against pit closures? Evaluate: Should the British government have decided to close down the coal industry in 1992? WILF - What am I Looking For? Identify & describe: Why did the UK government decide to close its remaining coal mines in 1992? Explain: What were the arguments for and against pit closures? Analyse: Should the British government have decided to close down the coal industry in 1992? If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop. We aim to produce cheap and affordable resources for either the price of a good cup of coffee or a happy meal so that you can spend more quality time with the people who matter. Anyway, have fun and stay in touch via social media for the latest updates. Kind Regards Roy

ks3 gcse 1-9 geography carbon footprint calculator science environmental climate global warming

ks3 gcse 1-9 geography carbon footprint calculator science environmental climate global warming

A lesson that gets pupils to calculate their own carbon footprint based on a series of life style questions. There are lots of on-line versions, but I wanted one that didn’t need any IT access. Pupils create a pledge that demonstrates ways that they will try to reduce their own carbon footprint. There is also a more complex GCSE style question that promotes an understanding of the global picture & why more developed countries would have a larger carbon footprint than developing countries. Or this may be set to change in relation to (often more costly) energy saving devices. Used as part of the KS3 SOW.

(8 resources) 1-9 gcse ks3 geography use modify landscape for water environment scheme

A lesson that explores the social, economic & environmental impacts of the Elan Valley to Birmingham water transfer scheme. Students use the information sheet (no need for books). Promotes independent learning. Pupils have a choice of tasks. Assessment task also provided. I would recommend printing the information sheet in colour & in A3 & laminating it, to be used again. Links well to much of the new 1-9 specification and was used as part of the KS3 SOW.

(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.
