This 9-lesson unit has been used successfully with Year 8 but could easily be used with a Year 7 or Year 9 group. It explores a range of aspects of the oceans and the pressures / conflict arising in them. Students found this unit to be very engaging and the resource allows a great deal of flexibility in how aspects are taught and a structured way of representing the information. This resource is particularly suitable to SEN learners or for students who need to complete independent work. Alternatively, the booklet is a great resource to use for cover lessons.
Our school uses ‘Challenge’, ‘Big Challenge’, and ‘Super Challenge’ to identify different levels of challenge and these are represented as : C, BC and SC in the booklet. Downloading the ‘Geography lessons and tasks overview’ spreadsheet will enable you to change the overview images should you require to do so (or simply delete them).
As a department, we moved to directly completing work in booklets which I created as Head of Department instead of exercise books. This approach was a result of student voice and a change in departmental direction. We have found the booklet approach to be highly beneficial for a wide range of reasons, for example; student outcomes, ease of marking, engagement in tasks from the beginning of the lesson, easily setting starting points, AfL etc. The booklets have been very well-received by students and acknowledged as excellent practice by SLT and during an Ofsted inspection in 2018.
The creation of each booklet took me a lot of time, as did the overview spreadsheet and both can be easily changed to meet the needs of your school / department. All other booklets I have created have a similar structure and wide range of tasks and very reasonably priced. Please see the free Year 7 resource - Earth Story for an example of the structure of all the booklets. The GCSE ones and some tasks in the KS3 booklets go well with the Pocket Posters Revision Guides and we bought every GCSE student one of these as well as class sets to enable them to develop independent learning habits. They are very cheap and found at: https://www.daydreameducation.co.uk/products/revision-guides-pocket-posters?subject=42
I hope you (and your students) enjoy the resource.

KS3 Geography worksheet bundle
6 packs of lessons covering a range of topics. Easy to use for stand-alone lessons or as a topic / series of lessons as originally designed. Develops and encourages independence and very easy to mark. Supports teaching on these topics as a means for students to develop their learning. Also ideal for setting as cover work or for a non-geography specialist to work through or as extension work for more able students. Any Atlas would support content in these booklets so no need for accompanying textbooks. A very small number of tasks refer to Pocket Posters Geography books (£3.00 per book) but these can easily be edited out / reference resources created if do not have copies of this book in school.
