Climate Change Scheme of work -  outstanding ofsted

Climate Change Scheme of work - outstanding ofsted

This is a topic that I have updated recently as a result of significant media attention. The lessons follow a logical structure and offer imaginative and creative ideas to help pupils understand all corners of the topic. Not only do pupils understand the causes and effects, they examine evidence as to whether or not climate change is real or a hoax. The lessons are as follows: Lesson 1- Intro to climate change Lesson 2- Climate Change, real or hoax Lesson 3- The Ice Age Debate Lesson 4- Worst Case Scenario Lesson 5,6- Impacts of Climate Change Lesson 7- Impacts on the UK This content is suitable for year 9 but is taught to a high level and is more than suitable to use for GCSE. Most content is taken from our GCSE lessons

Cold Environments

Cold Environments

This is a bundle of 11 lessons and covers the "Cold Environments" option from the new AQA GCSE. Includes Homeworks and an end of unit assessment. Also included is a lesson on Sir John Franklin's mission to discover the Northwest Passage. It's not in the spec, but I've always wanted to plan and teach it. This unit took well over 50 hours to plan, so please save yourself some time... (and buy me a beer). My lessons are planned and taught using Smart Notebook, but PDFs are also included. The Case Study used for development opportunities and challenges is ALASKA. Please note: A couple of these lessons require the Arctic with Bruce Parry DVD. (£6-7 from Amazon). It's excellent. Thanks for looking.

Development Challenges in Alaska

Development Challenges in Alaska

Title: Why isn't everyone rushing to Alaska? Aim: To create a video outlining 4 challenges to development in Alaska. HOMEWORK INCLUDED - 9 Mark case study question with plan. (Same as previous lesson, but now it's time to set it). Worth knowing... This lesson has two parts. The first part is a game I designed which the kids love and you'll use over and over again. This alone can take a lesson. The second part requires them to make group videos outlining challenges to development. We have flip cams at my school, but the students could use their phones. Lego/playdough also helps.
