Conserving Nature: KS4 - Conservation Conundrum

Conserving Nature: KS4 - Conservation Conundrum

Technological development in low income countries such as Uganda is important for improving the economy and providing a better quality of life for its population. However, quite often these developments carry a risk of negatively affecting the environment and the lives of local people. The work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) aims to ensure that new developments not only ‘do no harm’, but actively bring benefit to both biodiversity and local communities. In this activity students look at the positive and negative impacts of building more hydroelectric dams on Ugandan rivers. They use this information to write a balanced argument. Learning Outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and how it can protect biodiversity loss Students write a balanced argument, considering environmental, economic and social issues

gcse ks3 geography 1-9 data fieldwork statistics graphs charts presentation

A super lesson that explores the ways to present, analyse & explain data. I got students to create a traffic tally on a local road, whilst keeping then in the school grounds.

Links well to much of the new 1-9 specification and was used as part of the KS3 SOW.

NINE-USA CITIES

NINE-USA CITIES

This presentation can be used for children between the ages of 9 and sixteen. There are fifty five slides and thirty nine pages of additional resource materials. I have selected the following cities because of their contrasting site, situation and geographical locations. They are: Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. This selection of cities offers extended studies in both Physical and Human Geography. Included in the slide notes and the resource file are suggested work challenges involving on line work, historical links, geographical writing skills, discussions and other map drawing exercises. The presentation can be targeted at nine and ten year old students but it will be necessary to use the shortened version of the script. Children between the age of eleven and fourteen should be able to cope well with most of the challenges. Key Stage 4 (fourteen to sixteen years) students involved in examinations will be able to link this resource with a large range of the exam topics. Some examples include: Boston and New York - Settlements, site, situation and geographical location. New Orleans - Flooding, Mississippi Drainage Basin, River features including deltas. Detroit - Industrial and population change. Chicago and Detroit - Location, Waterways and Trade, Glaciation and the Great Lakes. Los Angeles and San Francisco - Environmental Hazards and Tourism. Las Vegas - Desert environment, Water resources and the Entertainment Industry. Washington DC - Capital City, history, location, population, government and tourism. There are several IT challenges on offer that involve constructing a quiz word grid, following the course of the River Colorado by using on line maps, developing knowledge of site, situation and geographical location with a starting point in Downtown Chicago. The whole project is aimed at developing a wide range of geographical knowledge along with IT skills and the opportunity to improve writing techniques in preparation for higher level studies. I personally would use this resource for Year 9 groups in preparation for Key Stage 4 Geography. The History content makes it just that little bit more interesting.

SECONDARY INDUSTRY- Ethical Shopping- Intro and Advert design- ENGAGING AND CREATIVE

SECONDARY INDUSTRY- Ethical Shopping- Intro and Advert design- ENGAGING AND CREATIVE

Used as a joiner lesson between introduction to secondary industry and Nike Sweatshops. The student learn about what Ethical Shopping is and how they as consumers have the power to change industry. They really enjoyed designing their adverts and were very proud when I put them on display. They produced them on computers but some did them on paper, both work as long as it is heavily sampled as many struggle at first with an adverts purpose and layout. The students will have lots of questions and I usually spend 3 lessons on this in total- 1st- introduce term and explain and assess sample ads/start designing. 2nd- Complete design and finish for homework. 3rd- Peer assess each other’s and link it to the environment. They then go on to learn about Nike and their understanding of ethical examples really helped them engage and progress. Please review if you download, thanks :)
