This page on the GA website was originally set up in response to floods in the UK in 2014, but the resources can be used to teach about flooding in general. This page contains information, case studies and links for teachers, including the use of GIS, maps of UK weather patterns responsible for the storms, causes and effects of flooding and possible links to climate change.
This contains a fully resourced lesson which explores the characteristics of urban areas, and how they change from the urban fringe to the central business district. This uses Ipswich as an example, although it could be easily adapted to study other cities.
This worksheet requires pupils to give four-figure and six-figure grid references on various locations featured in the Simpsons. It also includes a section on describing routes between places.
Feedback is always appreciated.
A fully resourced lesson on how the UK is linked with the rest of the world (interdependance).
*Starter- Students listen to the story of Lizzie, and how morning routine is linked to products worldwide.
*Main- Students produce an ideas map showing how the UK is linked to the rest of the world, categorising those links.
*Main- They then use the task sheet to create an informative poster to explain why countries are reliant on each other for food.
*Plenary- What might happen if we cut off our links to the rest of the world?
A fully resourced lesson used for an observation lesson on river processes. In the starter they have to decide which type of material would be the easiest to move downstream, create diagrams to show how material can be eroded, and includes a practical designed to show the settling rates of different size materials (sand, gravel, and clay). The instructions for that are contained on the powerpoint, and could be easily adapted to make a task sheet for students to carry out group work! Finally, they then make observations to analyse what they observed from the practical.
For my year 10 short course GCSE class. The other example to compare will be flooding in the UK.
