Rainforest Protection and Use Decision Making Task

Rainforest Protection and Use Decision Making Task

Ideal for KS3 or KS4. The worksheet deals with land use in the Indonesian rainforest and asks pupils to read about the standpoints of different groups including miners, farmers, local council members and others and make a decision on how to use the rainforest most effectively. This culminates in pupils using a map of Borneo (given on the worksheet) to zone different land uses in the most appropriate places and explain why they chose each area. The sheet can work as an activity on its own or could be used to scaffold a debate task. Resource created for the Environmental Management part of Geography IGCSE Theme 3 but could be used at various levels as the language in the task is not too challenging.

WJEC/ WJEC Eduqas 2016 SPEC- Theme 5- Lesson 17- Sustainable Management of Savannah and Assessed H/W

WJEC/ WJEC Eduqas 2016 SPEC- Theme 5- Lesson 17- Sustainable Management of Savannah and Assessed H/W

This lesson is the 17th lesson in the fifth theme of the new WJEC/ WJEC Eduqas 2016 specification for geography. This lesson looks at how the savannah can be managed sustainably. The 10 minutes on sheet helps students engage and recap on previous lessons work on the savannah- the sheet idea came from Jen Monk. Most of the activities are on the powerpoint. As this is the last teaching lesson, pupils will as homework have to complete the assessed homework, which helps them to focus their revision on areas of weakness after it is marked. The markscheme is detailed which will help you as teachers to be able to mark the assessed homework with ease. The other homework is to research a small scale ecosystem of sand dunes (this can obviously be changed). Any feedback on this lesson would be a great help for future lessons uploaded onto here.

Tropical rainforest Management in the Amazon

Tropical rainforest Management in the Amazon

This is a great visual revision resource for GCSE AQA Spec, covering the basics on causes, effects and sustainable management strategies for the Amazon Rainforest case study. I initially gave students blank copies of a tree and asked them to fill in their own knowlege, then gave my filled out version to lower ability students. They then used this infomation to help answer a range of past paper questions on the case study. There are 2 exam questions below the work sheet to test their understanding.

CHINA- Creative and independent activities- SEN/ G+TFRIENDLY

CHINA- Creative and independent activities- SEN/ G+TFRIENDLY

Collection of lessons and worksheets that I created for a particularly challenging year 7, with a wide academic gap and poor literacy skills. The students really enjoyed learning about China and it’s particularly good to run the SoW over the Chinese New Year. Green Pen and reflective tasks to help the students progress alongside engaging topics and lot of high level vocab. All tasks scaffolded and ppts have teacher instructions and samples. Extension tasks with every lesson. Please review if you download! Thanks :)

Chinese Panda Conservation- Geography Literacy based activity- fully SCAFFOLDED.

An independent entire lesson that I set as cover work. The students engage well with this activity and enjoy learning about the Panda’s and the vocabulary which is varied to challenge G+T students. There are 3 separate tasks, which have potential to be peer assessed and shared, the last task is arguing against a quote and with sentence starters success criteria. Please review if downloaded! Thanks!

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of  CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

Students consistently enjoy this lesson and enjoy learning about the unique animals and plants of each region. Depending on the class, this carousel could last 1-2 lessons and involves each student travelling to different habitats and completing a range of diverse and engaging tasks indepedently. You will need to set up the classroom into 4 large tables which can seat 1/4 of the class. I usually blue tack the sheets to the desks and surrounding walls and double print so that everyone can choose which tasks they’d like to complete at each station. Lots of potential for PA of answers and I usually put this work on display and talk through the IUCN red list/show them videos of the animals in China.
