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

KS2 Geography – Discover the Arctic Circle powerpoint lesson of 24 slides.

KS2 Geography – Discover the Arctic Circle powerpoint lesson of 24 slides.

KS2 Geography – Discover the Arctic Circle powerpoint lesson of 24 slides. Learning Objectives I must find the Arctic in my atlas. I must recognise the symbols for the points on a compass. I should identify the lines of latitude and longitude on a map or globe. I should explain the term ‘Arctic Circle’. I could describe where the Arctic Circle is in the world using geographical vocabulary and name some places located there. The lesson uses pupil starting points and encourages partner and group discussion. Written tasks are built into each stage of the lesson following a discussion task, map or globe work. The introduction asks pupils to describe the arctic landscape and arctic animals using a selection of photographs. They use this information to build up a picture to guess the place –the Arctic! The lesson moves onto a simple explanation of latitude and longitude and the points on the compass. Pupils will need a map or globe to explore the tasks fully and identify the Arctic Circle. There are 2 YouTube links – a latitude and longitude song (great fun!) and a short clip about Arctic wildlife which could be used as a starter for a follow up lesson. There is a simple optional assessment task at the end of the lesson.
