Urban sustainability: Ideas from the Solar Decathlon 2017

Urban sustainability: Ideas from the Solar Decathlon 2017

I had the opportunity to visit the Solar Decathlon in Denver 2017. I put together this resource to match the part of most GCSE Geography syllabuses that focus on urban growth and sustainability. Some slides are region-based (east of England) and for the AQA syllabus, but the main learning objectives are very relevant for a range of scales and locations. This powerpoint can be used front-facing; as an independent learning resource or flipped homework task. I strongly recommend you search for and browse the official website, it is very informative!

1. Taiga: plant and animal adaptations to climate Edexcel B 8.2a

1. Taiga: plant and animal adaptations to climate Edexcel B 8.2a

This lesson starts with matching biomes. Then is a market place activity. The resources are a post card from their teacher who 'went to Canada'. You can add in your school name and children's names to the post cards in the blanks. I also advise organising the groups into 6 before the class, there is space for this in the ppt. You could differentiate because the climate post card is easier than the plants and animals post card. The key words have been highlighted in all. They make visual posters from their post card and teach each other about their information. Afterwards they have to write back to the teacher being explicit about how abiotic and biotic features are interdependent. This covers the new Edexcel B 8.2a Specification. I used it for year 10's. Some people call Taiga the Boreal forest.
