Year 8 Spring-Summer SOW 2017 Development 5) Ghana Fact File WITH ANSWERS

Year 8 Spring-Summer SOW 2017 Development 5) Ghana Fact File WITH ANSWERS

This lesson is an introduction to Ghana and to make students aware of the physical and human landscape. I use the Geog.3 (coffee cup version). The settler to the lesson is to create two questions to test the student's peers in the starter. This is a team-based game called Butt Head where students ask questions to win balls to throw at a cap worn on the student's head. I have put instructions on the slide. The main (seen opposite) is a series of questions to hook the students about the lack of lights in rural Ghana. The questions have marks and ANSWERS on the next slide to peer or self assess. The main activity in the lesson is to create a poster on Ghana as a fact file in pairs using page 10-15 of the Geog.1 book. There is an extension of an empathetic diary entry of resident living in poverty. The development is a conundrum using a keypad as a puzzle for students. The plenary is called 'Mr Right or Mr Wrong' whereby students have to judge whether the facts are right or wrong. ANSWERS are provided to self or peer assess.

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.

Geography in the News quiz - No.30 21st August 2017 - AUSTRALIAN EDITION

Geography in the News quiz - No.30 21st August 2017 - AUSTRALIAN EDITION

The 21st August 2017 edition of a weekly quiz that focuses on world news of the week from a geographic perspective. The quiz is designed to suit the Australian Curriculum (Years 5 to 10) with questions based on Australian and world news. The quiz is placed on the TES website every Sunday at the beginning of the school week. The quiz is made up of five mapping questions plus fifteen multiple choice questions + answers. (note: the map doesn't display in the previews it is on the second page but the standard of maps can be seen if you look at the preview of the UK versions of the quiz also on my store). The quiz is a PDF that you can download and print for your classes. A separate answer file is included. The Geography in the News quiz for Australian schools is also available as subscription with the 2017 Semester 2 order form available from my website : www.geographyfocus.com How are schools using Geography in the News? 1. As a quiz that can be completed in as little as 6 minutes. 2. Group research. 3. As homework exercises that students can research the answers from a range of news websites. 4. Weekly group competitions within the class over a term or the year. 5. Weekly school geography competitions to promote the subject. 6. As a discussion starter. In whatever way Geography in the News is being used it has been seen to engage students in Geography and improve their geographic knowledge by taking them beyond the classroom. Comments from teachers using the quiz: "..... I have received only positive feedback from my Geography teachers. The students look forward to it each week and it has motivated them to become more aware of world events and current affairs. It doesn’t take too long before they make an effort to watch the news in order to win the title of Geo Hero for the week". "Fantastic idea. My students have become so engaged with world news and learning how geography is applied in the real world".

Oral History: Population Movement 1750 - 1900

Oral History: Population Movement 1750 - 1900

This outstanding lesson has been designed to help students studying population movement 1750 - 1900. It had been field tested and refined many times and is a really fun and engaging lesson, which has a really big impact of students. It can be used with the full spectrum of ability as it includes a range of tasks and activities which can be selected in whole or part to suit your students. You will need access to You Tube in order to be able to access the song. When you download this lesson you will be able to access a Microsoft Word document which contains the lyrics to the song 'Dalesman's Litany' and PowerPoint. There is enough work to fully engage a normal class of students for at least one lesson. The PowerPoint facilitates the lesson and includes aims, objectives, differentiated outcomes, a snowballing starter. The next couple of slides set the scene and explains why Britain's population was on the move. This is followed up by two source activities which could be print off and completed as an investigation or used as part of a class discussion to help set the scene for the main activity. The next slide is a pro and con thinking skills organiser on the problems facing historians when they use oral history as evidence. This could be competed as an activity or as a plenary. I have included a completed version at the end of the presentation. The next activity involves playing the song by clicking on the hyperlink in show mode. I personally would give students a copy of the lyrics to annotate but if you are short on the photocopying budget then you can get around it by getting them in pairs or groups to write down the jobs / places that the person in the folk song has done / lived to help illustrate the impact of the changes on peoples lives.. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Why did Britain have an Industrial Revolution 1750 - 1900? Know: Why was Britain’s population on the move 1750 – 1850? Understand: What factors caused this change? Evaluate: How useful is oral history as evidence about the past? WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Why was Britain’s population of the move? Explain: What factors caused this change? Analyse: How useful is oral history as historical evidence? If you like this lesson then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop. I have unloaded this one for free as its my favourite lesson of all time. If you wish you can also follow 'The History Academy' on Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and Facebook for the latest updates or even to get in touch and chat about how you have used this resource or to ask questions. We aim to produce cheap and affordable resources for either the price of a good cup of coffee or a happy meal so that you can spend more time doing the things that you want. Kind Regards Roy
