Coasts: Types of Waves

(0)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at how waves are formed and different types of waves. We start with a differentiated photo starter where the pupils can create questions for themselves or the teacher to answer on coastal erosion. We then introduce waves by watching big wave surfers at Nazare in Portugal. This is where the largest onshore waves in the world are found. The pupils then make an annotated step by step guide to how ripples turn into large waves. We then look at what happens when the waves arrive on-shore. The pupils make an annotated diagram. We then look at constructive and destructive waves. The pupils make pop-up versions of both wave types to go into their books with annotations. We finish we a simple 4-mark question on the differences between constructive and destructive waves with some guidance. In a nutshell lesson includes: Photo interpretation question creator starter Annotated step by step diagrams of wave formation Diagram of the process of waves breaking Pop-up destructive and constructive waves.

Coasts: Headlands and Bays

(1)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at the formation of headlands and bays through the process of differential erosion. We start with a simple retrieval practice quiz. We then introduce the concept of differential erosion and how geology can play big role in the formation of bays and headlands. the pupils are introduced to the features then use a trace outline diagram to alter the coastline to predict what it might look like in the future. The pupils then label the diagrams to show how headlands and bays are formed. We then look at concordant and discordant coastlines. We start by analysing a map of the Swanage coastline, the pupils questioned as to why the coast has different features and shapes. The pupils make a geological map of the area using an outline map, they them annotate where the two types of coastline are. We finish with a GCSE-style question on the role of geology in the formation of landforms on the coast. In a nutshell lesson includes: Retrieval practice starter Trace it 3-step diagram on the formation of bays and headlands. A geological outline map of the Dorset coastline activity. 6 mark GCSE-style question with guidance should the pupils need it.

Coasts: Processes of Erosion and Transportation

(1)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at the processes of erosion and transportation (Note we don’t do longshore drift until the next lesson, too much for one lesson!) We start with a retrieval practice grid from the previous lesson (good for spaced practice). We then introduce the concept of erosion, we watch a short video clip of he problems at Dawlish several years ago to get the pupils thinking about why erosion is important. We then look at erosion first, the pupils have a worksheet which shows the processes. They need to describe the process, locate the process on the map with an arrow and as a bonus they get to colour the diagram in (They still love doing this in year 11). We briefly look at the four processes of transportation and they do the same thing on the diagram. Next we explore what factors might affect the rate of these processes occurring. I get the pupils to do a spray diagram or spider diagram. The pupils then use this to answer the question on the worksheet. In a nutshell lesson includes: Retrieval practice starter Worksheet on the processes of erosion and transportation. Activity on factors influencing these processes Video clips where appropriate GCSE-style question with guidance on answering Hope this saves you some valuable planning time. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/markthegeographer

Coasts: Longshore Drift and Deposition

(1)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at the processes of longshore drift, deposition and wave refraction. We start with a retrieval practice grid which can be filled in with your own questions. We then introduce the concept of longshore drift. We watch a video clip, look at some sequential diagrams, and also consider why some parts of the coastline do not experience longshore drift, yet other parts do. The pupils use this knowledge to complete a worksheet which has several tasks such as explaining, drawing sequential diagrams and annotating. We then move onto deposition and wave refraction. We consider how wave refraction can create areas of erosion and deposition. The pupils create a diagram, which we label and annotate as we go along. There are several extension questions for the pupils to consider too. We finish with a simple post-it plenary on groynes and longshore drift. In a nutshell lesson includes: Retrieval practice starter Worksheet on the process of longshore drift with several activities. Annotated diagram of wave refraction. Video clips where appropriate Post-it plenary. Hope this saves you some valuable planning time. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/markthegeographer

Coasts: Spits and Bars

(1)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at spits and bars together with the processes that lead to their formation. The starter is a true or false type quiz where the pupils have to find the landforms and processes associated with erosion. We have a brief reminder of what longshore drift and deposition are. We have a quiz around a photo of Spurn Head and then watch a video clip. The pupils then create annotated diagrams of spits, bars and tombolos. This is usually teacher led in my lessons, but would work as an info hunt/share. We then draw an annotated field sketch from a photograph of Dawlish Warren Spit. The pupils then label the feature of the spit and fill in the blanks on the paragraph. We finish with a 6 mark GCSE-style question: “Explain how the processes of deposition lead to the formation of distinctive landforms”. The pupils have some guidance in answering this. In a nutshell lesson includes: Retrieval practice true or false starter Video clip Annotated diagrams on formation of spits, bars and tombolos. Features of a field sketch from photograph with an example. 6 mark GCSE-style question with guidance should the pupils need it.

Coasts: Hard Engineering

(2)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at types of hard engineering and where they are best applied. The starter is a quiz where the pupils need to select the squares that have a depositional landform. There are sound effects too so it’s all very exciting. We begin by looking at why certain areas of the coast need protecting and what factors go into consideration when planners are deciding whether or not to protect the coastline. The pupils are then given some information cards and a worksheet to fill in on the different types of hard engineering, they also have a visual scale to shade in for each one according to it’s effectiveness and durability, cost and sustainability. This can be done in a number of ways (group work, round the room, carousel etc). We then seek to apply this knowledge though the pupils completing a decision making exercise. This is based on a fictional town (Sandytown). The town has been divided into zones, the pupils read the information on each zone and decide what type fo hard engineering that zone needs and justify this. We finish with a 6 mark question on hard engineering with some guidance on how they can answer this. In a nutshell lesson includes: Interactive starter quiz on depositional landforms. Video clip. Hard engineering worksheet with visual scale. Decision making exercise activity. 6-mark GCSE-style question with guidance should the pupils need it.

Coasts: Beaches and Sand Dunes

(1)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at beaches and how their profiles can be altered and sand dune succession and formation… We start with a simple retrieval practice grid which is good for spaced practice. We then discuss why some beaches have different profiles to other beaches and what difference the size of sediment makes. We then look at the different types of waves and how they affect beach profiles. The pupils will make annotated diagrams of winter and summer beaches. We move onto sand dune systems. The pupils have an outline profile of sand dune succession. We use info slides which can either be teacher led, or use as a round the room activity, group activity etc, the pupils add the appropriate info onto the diagram from the slides. We then look at what conditions are needed for the dune system to form. The pupils have a hexagon task. I usually get the pupils to think about each factor first, the next slide has the answers but they still need to match them up We finish with a GCSE-style question on the formation of sand dunes with some guidance on how to answer. In a nutshell lesson includes: Retrieval practice starter Beach profile diagram activity Sand dune succession annotated round the room/group diagram task. Formation of sand dunes hexagon task. 4 mark GCSE-style question with guidance should the pupils need it.

Coasts: Soft Engineering

(1)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at types of soft engineering and look at an example where they have been applied. We also use the lesson as an opportunity to practice some map skills. The starter is a simple retrieval practice grid based on the coasts unit of work. We begin by locating Crow Point which is an area in North Devon at risk from coastal erosion where soft engineering strategies have been used to prevent further erosion to the fragile dune system. The pupils will be given a large A3 sheet of paper with an outline map of the area including the dune system. The pupils then use grid references to add labels and features onto their map. Once they have completed this we look at the different types of soft engineering strategies and the advantages and disadvantages. The pupils are given grid references to the location these strategies have been applied. They locate them on their map and write the details in the appropriate box. We do this four all four strategies. This could be done as an info gather, round the room, carousel etc. We finish with a 4 mark question comparing hard and soft engineering with some guidance on how they can answer this. In a nutshell lesson includes: Retrieval practice starter Map skills practice Soft engineering information gather task 4-mark GCSE-style question with guidance should the pupils need it. Hope this saves you some valuable planning time. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/markthegeographer

Coasts: Coastal Landforms at Swanage

(1)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at coastal landforms along the Swanage coastline. The starter is called “perfect paragraph?” The pupils will see a response to a GCSE-style question and need to spot the errors in the paragraph, we then discuss if anything needs adding to the answer. We introduce Swanage to the pupils and its location. The pupils will be working on an A3 sheet of paper that will become a revision resource for them in the future. We start by locating Swanage and the pupils describe its location using geographical language. We the look at the discordant and concordant sections of the coastline and the pupils create an annotated map showing the locations of the landforms we will study as well as an explanation of how the geology affects the coastline. We then look at Old Harry Rocks. The pupils will do a field sketch from photograph which they then label to show all the features on the landform. We then look at Lulworth Cove and how it has formed on a concordant coast. The pupils create a 3 stage diagram to show how this formed., they annotate this too/ We finish with a post-it plenary based on a short question regarding the content of the lesson. In a nutshell lesson includes: Perfect paragraph? Starter. A3 poster worksheet with a variety of activities on the landforms around Swanage. Video clip. Post-it plenary. Hope this saves you some valuable planning time. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/markthegeographer

Coasts: Managed Retreat

(1)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1C: In this lesson we look at what managed retreat is and we also consider an example at Medmerry in West Sussex. The starter is a a simple true or false quiz that is used for retrieval practice, but is easily edited. We introduce the concept of coastal management schemes first and then we explore the definition of managed retreat with a simple fill in the gap task and the pupils consider when it might be appropriate as a strategy and when not. We introduce Medmerry, the pupils write a description of it’s location before we look at the scheme and why it was needed. The pupils have a worksheet, the questions are answered whilst the pupils watch a video clip on the scheme. They then complete a visual plan map of the scheme to show how the area is flooded. We then consider the benefits and costs of the scheme in a categorising task. We finish with a 6 mark question on the effectiveness of coastal management schemes. The pupils have some guidance on this if you feel they need it. In a nutshell lesson includes: Retrieval practice starter Short tasks on definition of managed retreat and location of Medmerry. Worksheet tasks with questions and a plan view map of the scheme. Information categorising task on costs and benefits of the scheme. 6-mark GCSE-style question with guidance should the pupils need it.
