The pupil’s using the textbook complete a number of tasks to become familiar with the example such as constructing a climate graph, describing places, finding the meaning of facts and figures, creating a map, defining key words, categorising impacts. The sheets need printing out on A3 paper ideally. We then tackle a question on large-scale water transfer schemes. The pupils have guidance should they need it on how to answer the question and can use their sheet to help them.

Case study of water supply issues in Lesotho and South Africa. Map skills, numeracy and evaluation of the Lesotho highlands water project, GCSE AQA
A research project designed to enable students to develop their own individualised case study on a specific population of their choice. Students will follow a set criteria designed and inspired by subject-specific methodology and Bloom’s Taxonomy. The research project encourages students to become familiar with population indicators, trends and patterns over time, before analysing population issues and creating viable solutions. I use this for my S7 European Baccalaureate course (16-18 years old) but it can easily be implemented in a high-level GCSE class, A-Level or IB course. It usually takes between 10-15 hours. Included is an introduction, overview, success criteria and feedback sheet.
The lesson covers an example of an urban regeneration project to show: reasons why the area needed regeneration and the main features of the project. You need to follow the PPT, all resources are attached. I did it with three classes so far and even the most challenging class got engaged. The lesson uses time management and the pace is fast so no time to waste or misbehave. I chose the Olympic Park as it is in this country and you even can extend the lesson by fieldwork (if you have time). It took me two lessons with each group to complete the lesson and I still have another two groups to go. It uses a wide variety of skills, i.e.: pictures and maps analysis, map reading, exam question answering, guessing problems.

This is an extensive 12-page lesson plan packet using Star Wars to teach biomes. I have used all seven Star Wars films to teach students about biomes with great success. (I recently updated the packet to include two scenes from The Force Awakens.) The lesson plan includes a twelve-question assessment that (1) asks students watch scenes from the Star Wars films to identify real-world biomes including temperate deciduous forest, desert, Mediterranean chaparral, tropical rain forest, alpine, tundra, and temperate coniferous forest; and (2) then conduct research on these real backdrops to gain a deeper understanding of the delicacy of our world's biomes. George Lucas' Star Wars movies are a delightful mix of heroic stories, wonderful characters and monsters, and dramatic action sequences. Millions of people -- including many young adults -- love these films. Look closely and you will see vibrant, natural worlds lying beneath the special effects. After all, Lucas chose many real backdrops for the Star Wars sagas -- Whippendell Woods, United Kingdom, and Tozeur, Tunisia, for examples. Now, you can use them to teach biomes to your science or geography students. I would suggest your students have at least a basic understanding of the biomes presented in this assignment beforehand. This assignment might work best after you have introduced biomes in your classroom and asked students to identify specific features of each. Included please find the lesson plan, teacher's scene guide, student identification assignment and answer key, guidelines for the research paper, and a rubric to evaluate the research paper.
