This resource is aimed at KS3 students and can be used as part of a topic on Global Warming or as a stand alone lesson for a cover/supply teacher. The lesson is delivered through a PowerPoint, the main lesson objectives being to get students to understand the causes of Global Warming and then calculate their own Carbon Footprint by answering a series of questions and calculating their score. Having identified the factors which add to their Carbon Footprint they can then use this information to produce a poster explaining ways to reduce our carbon Footprint. The presentation contains lesson objectives, an Odd One Out starter activity and a Blockbuster Style plenary, An answer sheet for this activity is also included.
The best variation of the cake game! Very topical today given the European migrant issue. All the numbers have been calculated accurately for any class size from 24 to 32. Furthermore it is easy to set up. No images as one of the aims is to tackle perceived ideas as an introduction to development and the Millennium goals. Not only is the cake already divided but each member (pupil) of each country must bargain for their share of the cake and they must negotiate with other countries for a greater portion of the cake. Furthermore individuals within countries must decide whether to migrate or not whilst host countries have to decide on whether to allow migrants in. Lots of self & peer review and green pen action. Based on the facingfutures.org resource it took a VERY long time to get the percentages correct for each pupil so please review this lesson when you buy it.
"Outstanding" lesson observation from Ofsted. They particularly liked the use of the wordle to support the higher achieving pupils. Aimed at Y7/8 but is easily adapted for Y10/11. Pupils define coasts and consider their many uses. Very active and fast paced lesson. Plenty of LOTS & HOTS. Team work and differentiation as pupils choose their second task based on the outcome of the first task. All tasks are level linked with self & peer review. All images resources are at the end of the PPT. SEN support material included as well as G&T. PPT has teaching notes (lesson plan) on each slide. Please review if you buy.
