Andrew Marr - Mega Cities - Ep1 - Living in the Cities - Worksheet to support the BBC documentary

(1)
Andrew Marr - Mega Cities - Ep1 - Living in the Cities - Worksheet to support the BBC documentary ‘For the first time in history, more people live in cities than the countryside. Across the globe, we have 21 cities with more than 10 million people, and these numbers are set to increase - busy, noisy, crowded megacities are the future. In a fascinating three-part series, Andrew Marr finds out how these heaving mega-metropolises feed, protect and move their citizens. In the first episode, Andrew looks at how people live in five of the world’s biggest megacities: London, one of the world’s oldest megacities; Dhaka, the world’s fastest-growing megacity; Tokyo, the largest megacity on Earth; Mexico City, one of the most dangerous cities in the world; and Shanghai, arguably the financial capital of the world.’ The worksheet is written to provide independent learning and enrichment opportunities through a variety data collection and analytical tasks. The worksheet has been written in Publisher to an A3 format but can be amended and printed as a PDF to accomodate A4 printing. I have included an A4 Word document version to allow for use in Google Classroom

BBC - Extinction - David Attenborough - Worksheet to support the BBC Documentary

(1)
BBC - Extinction - David Attenborough - Worksheet to support the BBC Documentary With a million species at risk of extinction, Sir David Attenborough explores how this crisis of biodiversity has consequences for us all, threatening food and water security, undermining our ability to control our climate and even putting us at greater risk of pandemic diseases. Extinction is now happening up to 100 times faster than the natural evolutionary rate, but the issue is about more than the loss of individual species. Everything in the natural world is connected in networks that support the whole of life on earth, including us, and we are losing many of the benefits that nature provides to us. The loss of insects is threatening the pollination of crops, while the loss of biodiversity in the soil also threatens plants growth. Plants underpin many of the things that we need, and yet one in four is now threatened with extinction. Last year, a UN report identified the key drivers of biodiversity loss, including overfishing, climate change and pollution. But the single biggest driver of biodiversity loss is the destruction of natural habitats. Seventy-five per cent of Earth’s land surface (where not covered by ice) has been changed by humans, much of it for agriculture, and as consumers we may unwittingly be contributing towards the loss of species through what we buy in the supermarket. Our destructive relationship with the natural world isn’t just putting the ecosystems that we rely on at risk. Human activities like the trade in animals and the destruction of habitats drive the emergence of diseases. Disease ecologists believe that if we continue on this pathway, this year’s pandemic will not be a one-off event.

The period up to and after the Norman invasion was perhaps the most turbulent in the history of law. But in the 150 years from 1066, the legal system was transformed. This period saw the signing of the Magna Carta and the establishment of the three major planks of a modern legal system: independent judges, trial by jury, and English common law.

The sheet is written in Publisher, formatted to A3. It can be edited and amended for saving as a PDF for A4 printing In the second of this three-part series, Professor Robert Bartlett explores the impact of the Norman conquest of Britain and Ireland. Bartlett shows how William the Conqueror imposed a new aristocracy, savagely cut down opposition and built scores of castles and cathedrals to intimidate and control. He also commissioned the Domesday Book, the greatest national survey of England that had ever been attempted. England adapted to its new masters and both the language and culture were transformed as the Normans and the English intermarried. Bartlett shows how the political and cultural landscape of Scotland, Wales and Ireland were also forged by the Normans and argues that the Normans created the blueprint for colonialism in the modern world.

EDEXCEL 9-1GCSE - Topic 3: 1750-1900 SUMMARY 'TOPIC ON A PAGE’ consolidation, revision, resource This resource provides students with a 'TOPIC ON A PAGE’ summary for the WESTERN FRONT ENVIRONMENTAL STUDY for Paper 1 of the Medicine Through Time and the Environmental Study on the Trenches Unit. It fully covers the syllabus content for each topic and can be used by students and teachers to: a) consolidate knowledge and understanding to encourage student mastery (embedding academic language and concepts)after students have completed a topic in class or as a homework task, helping them identify areas of strengths and weaknesses b) as a quick starter activity to review prior learning or weeks/months later as a spaced retrieval practice task. I regularly take sections from the placemats and use them to support spiralled learning. c) to encourage relevant exam responses - specifically targeting the themes of explaining the cause of illness, methods of prevention, treatments, care of the sick, public health, important individuals and factors effecting change. d) the question squares can be completed and then cut up into cards to form KAGAN Quiz/Quiz Trade Question and Answer Cards e) as a useful revision aid before the final exam. (Many of my Year 11 students rely on these sheets in the final weeks and days of revision and have commented that they have helped make factual recall of the huge volume of the syllabus content more achievable. The resource includes prompt pictures to appeal to visual learners and can be used as a standalone resource or in conjunction with the Edexcel Pearson Revision Guide, where all of the answers can be found. This resource can also be used in conjunction with the topic placemats that I have produced to support students in lessons. The first box contains the same summary picture for the whole topic. In particular, I have successfully used the TOPIC ON A PAGE summaries with the ‘EXAM TECHNIQUE’ side of the placemats so when students are given exam questions, they can quickly find relevant supporting knowledge to use in a response. I have used this resource successfully with students targeted Levels 4 - 9. It could be easily adapted for students working on or below L3. The ‘fill in the gaps’ prompts can be removed for higher ability students.

Hong Kong World's Busiest Cities - Worksheet to support the BBC Documentary

(0)
More than half of us now live in cities. Crowded, chaotic and bursting with life - these are places under pressure. In this series, Dan Snow, Anita Rani and Ade Adepitan go behind the scenes to reveal the hidden systems and armies of people running some of the greatest cities on earth. This time, they are in Hong Kong, where space is at a premium and real estate is the most expensive in the world, so Ade heads into the high rises to find people living in tiny spaces no larger than a cupboard. This former British colony, handed back to the Chinese in 1997, is a city driven by trade and commerce and Dan discovers how it is adapting to life in China’s embrace, while Anita learns about the city’s many traditions - from bamboo scaffolding to banishing bad spirits on the daily commute. Ade heads to the races at Happy Valley, and Dan discovers the history of the origins of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation - HSBC. Hong Kong is crowded, chaotic and facing an uncertain future. How does this city of contrasts manage the delicate daily balancing act that keeps it on track?
