FISHING SUSTAINABILITY - Caught in a storm?Quick View


I have developed this for use predominantly with KS3 but it could also be used at KS4. 1 hour lesson. 1 x PPT which leads the lesson complete with short clips on the problem of over fishing and why it is a problem. Also a short clip on the work of the MSC in regulating fishing worldwide. 1 x Game for the whole class using popcorn and straw to mimic fish and a fishing rod. Students have a short amount of time to 'catch' fish using the straw and then must adjust their strategy to maintain fish stocks for the coming seasons. A practical way of getting students to experience the problems associated with over fishing. Feedback welcome!

Global Goals lesson 1 & Sustainability lesson 2Quick View

Global Goals lesson 1 & Sustainability lesson 2

Power points and lesson plans to support lessons 1 & 2 in my sustainability booklet. Lesson 1 begins by looking at current global problems and potential challenges we may be faced with over coming years. Students then examine the millennium development goals and use research and statistics to determine the extent to which they have/haven't been met. This then leads into the sustainable development goals as set by the UN and ends with a homework research task on these goals. In lesson 2 students consolidate their understanding of sustainability and start to evaluate how sustainable they are as human beings before considering actions they can take to be more sustainable. Next they examine how sustainable their school is and work in small groups to create a sustainable school.
