Year 7 2017 SOW Spring Term Africa 7) Biomes of Africa [SEN and High ability] WITH ANSWERS

Year 7 2017 SOW Spring Term Africa 7) Biomes of Africa [SEN and High ability] WITH ANSWERS

This lesson centres around biomes of Africa. Each question within the PowerPoint has ANSWERS and relates to the NEW Geog.1 textbook at KS3 but in this lesson we use the documents attached. The lessons begins with a simple food chain for Africa. The second settler is called 'Street View' with students creating a food chain using key terms. This aims to introduce new terminology and is also suitable for low ability. Both activities have ANSWERS. Before the starter, to hook students into learning play them the video attached 'The Very Best of Walk on the Wild Side'. The starter is Continental Dash is using the World Map and post-it notes with the different biomes put on them. The students need to find the post-it notes and place on the World map in the correct place before the timer ends. Use the Geog.1 books to aid them or the IWB to aid low ability learners. This activity can be used as a settler the following lessons to recap learning. The main is a group-based activity (seen opposite). For low ability pair higher students with SEN. I target the roles with certain students but give higher ability more choice. The aim is to use the three different biomes attached as worksheets to create an A3 concept map in the students' group. There are role cards for the activity and a chance to find out the facts from the other biomes. I usually give two lessons to do this activity with mini-presentations (see my FREE presentation template). There is an extension activity for higher sets introducing them into distribution questions for GCSE with ANSWERS and SUCCESS CRITERIA. The other development is proclaim and explain in group presentations. The plenary is Anagrams with an Odd one out. ANSWERS are in the notes on the slide.

The options are endless. Included: 10 mix and match, print and go pages Front and back cover for the Global Passport Log for recording countries explored.
