Coastal Management - Conflict of Interest

Coastal Management - Conflict of Interest

Coastal management depends on the understanding and pulling together of the different people who use the coastline to cope with the physical processes impacting on the area. The different techniques used will have positive and negative impacts depending on their interests. Tourism, industry, fishing, trade and transport are all land uses along the coastline but with varying interests. These worksheets helps students to understand these different interests and how they can cause problems to one another. The different types fo hard and soft enginerring techniques are discussed as well as whether they think our coastlines should be protected or left to develop naturally.

Snow White Activity Pack

Snow White Activity Pack

A detailed and wide range of activities based on the traditional version of Snow White. This is an overview of a unit of work, which can be used in conjunction with the story or a trip to the pantomime and is most suitable for children from EYFS to lower Key Stage 2, although the ideas may be cherry picked and developed for older pupils. Most of the activities are based in drama, art & technology and literacy, and there are opportunities for outdoor learning which encompass geography and design technology. Included in the pack are background notes on the history and changes to the text since it first appeared in print, suggested further reading and almost unnecessary references to Chris Hemsworth. I have included detailed notes on how I would approach telling the tale to a class as a oral tale - where I would have breaks for discussions and to create tension. More detailed lesson plans based on these ideas are now available to purchase. Please check them out!
