GCSE AQA 9-1: Climate Change - The  Evidence for Climate Change.Quick View

GCSE AQA 9-1: Climate Change - The Evidence for Climate Change.

This lesson concentrates on the wide range of evidence available for climate change . It covers the historical evidence, glacial retreat, ice cores, direct temperature readings through to recent changes in sea ice coverage. It is designed to be used with the Oxford Textbook but other sources can be used instead. A range of options are included to cover the material, depending on sources available. A graphic organiser has been kept relatively generic to allow for a variety of texts/sources to be used but it is ideal if using the new Oxford Textbook. Differentiated questions have also been included. Leave a review and pick any other resource for free. Either PM me or e-mail me with your choice (see last slide of the powerpoint).

Climate Change and Disease

Mystery-style lesson on the links between climate change and the increased risk of malaria in the UK. Pupils have to work in groups to sort through a variety of evidence (provided on clues and worldmapper sheets) to come up with theories about what killed 'Big Kev'. Some higher level thinker skills are definitely required for what has been a very enjoyable KS3 lesson the past few years.

CLIMATE CHANGE - 5. Managing climate change - Adaptation

This lesson has been designed to ensure students understand ways in which humans can adapt to the effects of climate change, as per the AQA GCSE Geography specification. The PowerPoint is clearly structured with; - Starter tasks to assess prior knowledge - there are 2 because this takes me 2 lessons to complete. - Clear learning objectives with success criteria and links to the exam specification - Variety of activities and new information supported by a hyperlinked video and worksheet (found at the end of the PPT). - Plenary - consolidation task to enable students to think about and discuss key points learnt and their implications.

Climate Change

A series of lessons looking at climate change and global warming. Lesson 1: Causes- what global warming is, what greenhouse gases are, are humans the cause, deforestation and fossil fuels. Lesson 2: Effects- data about climate change, sea level rise, ocean acidification, warming oceans, shrinking ice sheets, extreme weather events, effects on health and a graph drawing exercise. Lesson 3: Solutions- what can governments do, the Paris agreement, what businesses can do and renewable energy. Lesson 4: Solutions- what individuals can do to combat climate change. There are lots of exercises and information included in each lesson and it could easily be condensed down into fewer lessons by excluding some tasks. Likewise some of the tasks could be stretched out across several lesson depending upon the time you have. All worksheets/resources needed are within the PowerPoint as hidden slides.

Climate change evidence of global warming and natural causes of climate change

A series of three lessons introducing climate and change at ks3, I used this for year 9. The lessons cover how our past climates have changed using graphs, pupils will create their own data graph to determine patterns which leads on to natural causes including sun spots, orbital changes and volcanic activity. There is an extended writing opportunity within the evidence of past climate change lesson which has a writing frame to support pupils. It is fully resourced with all the relevant worksheets and information sheets.

Climate Change SoW

Here is an entire Scheme / Unit of work for a Climate Change topic in Geography. This was delivered to Year 9 KS3. Some resources have been adapted from various powerpoints. All resources have been attached. There are a variety of activities included in this SoW (Diamond 9, sorting tasks, colour coding, discussions, ICT task). I would really appreciate any feedback. No lesson plans are attached but it should be quite straight forward. Climate Change Evidence requires the youtube video "6 degrees - Our future on a hotter planet"
