Places Unit of work 7 lessons including test

Places Unit of work 7 lessons including test

This unit of work has been written for the start of Year 7, but could be used within any of KS3 or even adapted to Year 6. It starts off with what a place is and describing where we live in the world. It then uses local fieldwork to investigate places and moves on to improving knowledge of the UK, Europe and the World. You will need to adapt the fieldwork lessons slightly due to the local surroundings to your school, but this will only involve a localised google map and a couple of images. There is a test at the end of the unit.

KARUMBA - THE ONLY MAJOR PORT ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA AUSTRALIA

KARUMBA - THE ONLY MAJOR PORT ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA AUSTRALIA

Through a series of 5 stories students will gain an understanding of the layout and function of this remote port. Many Australians are aware that Karumba exists but regard it as a destination for fishing for Barramundi and crocodile spotting. The “Gery nomads” - retired travellers usually towing caravans or arriving in motor homes - often put Karumba on their bucket list of places to visit. There is much more to Karumba than fishing and crocodile viewing. Take your students along the stretch of the Karumba Port near the mouth of the Norman River and there are large buildings which indicate other functions. Learn about Krys the crocodile of unbelievable proportions. Pass the rusting wreck in the mangroves and wonder how it arrived there. Go past the sign where cattle yards exist and recognise the prohibited access. Go past the dredge as it moves back into deeper water to dredge the channel from the deeper waters of the Gulf of Carpentaria and recognise by research how important that process to the population of the town. Look inland to discover the very large Century zinc mine at Lawn Hill and find out how it is connected to the zinc pellet processing plant at Karumba. Then, like the recent advertising programme from the local tourist operators, become aware of the environmental assets in landscape and a range of bird life. Understand why they have included their heading “There’s more to Karumba than fishing and crocodiles”. Find out why those visiting Karumba need to come in the cooler months of the year and avoid the hotter summer months. The attachments assist student understanding. The fill-in attachments could be used to support a type of tutorial approach where the numbered sections matching the page numbers could be screened and the students with some discussion could fill in the answers to provide a record of Karumba. Enjoy the excursion to Karumba but if you are involved in bird watching in the mangroves or on the lowland marshes on the entry road from Normanton, take time to read the warning -“crocodiles eat birds and bird watchers”.

THE EPIC 1844-45 EXPLORATION EXPEDITION OF LUDWIG LEICHHARDT ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN SAVANNA

THE EPIC 1844-45 EXPLORATION EXPEDITION OF LUDWIG LEICHHARDT ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN SAVANNA

The German explorer Ludwig Leichhardt joins the group of European explorers who made long and arduous journeys across the “Great unknown” interior. Well - unknown to Europeans and colonists with settlements along the coastline. Join his epic exploration from Moreton Bay (Brisbane) to the very remote colonial settlement of Victoria on the shores of Port Essington. Follow his progress by map and description. Assist your students to become aware of the dangers faced. Understand why this long journey which was expected to take 4-6 months ended up taking nearly 14 months. Find evidence along the route by photographic inclusions. Recognise the challenges faced by members of the exploration party. Find out why the ultimate success of this exploration depended on the skills of two aboriginal guides in the group. Find out how Leichhardt contributed to the naming of features within the Australian Savanna. Work out why this expedition has been given the title of “epic”. The description, maps and photographs provide a record of the journey that had been labelled as “a failure” was to be praised as “a success”. The attachments are provided for the provision of hard copies. Your students can develop their own expedition map and the screens are numbered so that answers to the set questions can be located and filled in. You may decide to use the attachments as you screen the pages in class or you may used them as check questions when the unit has been completed. Ludwig Leichhardt is generally less well known than Burke and Wills and McDouall Stuart but this expedition places him alongside them in terms of length, difficulty and achievement. Find out why. This unit can lead on to one of the great mysteries of Australian European exploration - the mystery surrounding the disappearance of all members of Leichhardt’s exploration group on the 1848 exploration attempt to reach the Swan River Settlement from Moreton Bay (Brisbane).

This guided reading resource includes a pair of texts about Australasia with four comprehension skills sheets to complete, providing reading passages and questions that are challenging and engaging. Using the ‘LIMS’ approach, students work through Literal, Inference, Meaning and Summary questions to ensure that in the course of a week, they have practised skills in reading right across the Common Core. Text is differentiated and an answer scheme is provided. Suggested itinerary: Day 1 (30 mins) – Read both texts as a class. Highlight key parts. Discuss together. What have we learned? What do we want know more about? It is worth asking the students to write down any questions they have about the texts and putting them on display. Day 2 (30 mins) – Literal sheet Day 3 (30 mins) – Inference sheet (or meaning sheet if you prefer) Day 4 (30 mins) – Meaning sheet (or inference sheet if you prefer) Day 5 (45 mins) – Summary sheet and looking back at questions from the start of the week. This is the second in a series of Paired text resources looking at the seven continents of the world. Keep an eye on my store. Differentiation: All questions are the same, which should make marking easier! However, the texts differ, with asterisks in the bottom right corner indicating the reading level.

OUTSTANDING TRF Debate lesson- 'Should we contact the last remaining tribes on Earth?'

OUTSTANDING TRF Debate lesson- 'Should we contact the last remaining tribes on Earth?'

This lesson is always enjoyable as the students are fascinated by the content and are always up for debating each other! Depending on the group, this usually involves 1 prep lesson, with lots of videos (links in the ppt) and discussion and then the debate lesson 2- which I usually finish the biosphere/TRF topic with. Works really well if you choose the mediators/judges based on their personalties and abilities and ask senior staff to join you for it and be a part of one of the teams/judges. This lesson works for various ages as the question is very open to their own views and your role is to facilitate their ideas. Enjoy & please review if you download :)

OCEAN PLASTIC- 3 whole lessons with IT based pairs activity- fully scaffolded & engaging!

This resource could be used as part of an Environmental Issues SoW. The aims are to reduce the amount of plastic used in your school through the class creating persuasive adverts encouraging their peers to buy reusable bottles. Each lesson uses a variety of learning techniques based on enquiry and all video links are in the notes section of each slide. I will then display the students work around the school and see if it has any impact! Water consumption is incredibly important for concentration and should be encouraged within the school environment. These lessons could also be used to create cross curricular links in DT and Art and potentially provide the design for school merchandise! Please review if you download! Enjoy :)

Intro to COASTS- Ideal for assessing independent learning ability. Diverse and lengthy tasks!

Intro to COASTS- Ideal for assessing independent learning ability. Diverse and lengthy tasks!

I created this for my students as a more engaging alternative to textbook activities. It introduces the coast, key vocab, types of waves, true/false quiz, and discusses pebble vs sans beaches using beaches in the UK. The tasks are extremely diverse and tackle a range of geography skills. Every task is differentiated with a challenge task and examples. Should be printed on A3 in colour and given 1 per pair. Will take at least one full hour, if not two! The second worksheet is matched to the video which is about the South Australian coastline and contains a series of questions matched to the video and the tasks slowly get more difficult, ending with a persuasive exercise about species management. -FULL LESSON Please review if you download!

World Traveler Social Studies & Math Research Project Continents Elapsed Time

World Traveler Social Studies & Math Research Project Continents Elapsed Time

This is a research-based learning project that integrates social studies, math, and writing. To complete this project, students will go on a world tour of six different countries around the world. Through their travels, they will learn the location of these countries along with important facts. To get to each destination, students must use their budgeted money to buy plane tickets. They will use subtraction to calculate how much money they have left after each purchase and determine the length of each flight (elapsed time). They will also mark each location on a world map and label the continents. After traveling to all six destinations, students will use 3-digit addition to calculate the total money spent. They will also write a descriptive paragraph about a landmark of their choice and an opinion paragraph about the location they would like to visit again. Includes: ✓ Teacher instructions ✓ World map in color and black/white ✓ 12-page passport booklet ✓ Customs stamps for each country ✓ Boarding passes/airline tickets ✓ Travel book to hold tickets and stamps ✓ Answer keys The passport book is where students will record their work. They will research each location to complete its page in the passport. They will find the country, continent, capital city, official language, currency, climate, and important landmark. Kid-safe website suggestions for conducting research are included. The first page of the passport is the travel budget. Students will use this page to keep track of their tickets and calculate how much money they have left after each purchase. The last three pages of the passport include a landmark matching activity, a page with addition, subtraction, and elapsed time questions, and the descriptive and opinion writing activities. The countries students will visit include: • Australia • Brazil • China • Egypt • Germany • Russia

20 x Countries Wordsearch Geography Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

20 x Wordsearches on the theme of ‘Countries’. Countries are: African Countries Australia Austria Canada Croatia Egypt Greece India Ireland Italy Lithuania Luxembourg Malta Mexico Norway Peru Portugal Russia Spain Thailand Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
