Full KS3 unit of work for Coasts. This unit explores Coasts, from erosion and coastal features to management and sea level rise. All lesson are suitable for 50 minutes to 1 hour of teaching time. Includes supporting worksheets for lessons - no additional resources are required.
All lessons have a starter and learning objectives. All PowerPoints in the same signature style.

Also includes Geography Literacy mat and Geography Numeracy/Map Skills mat.
Full scheme of work with assessment, and mark scheme. This Scheme of work was written for year 8 SEN students. It consists of 10 lessons, containing adaptable powerpoint slides, teaching resources, lessons plans and SOW.
Each lesson is timed for an hour. However, the unit lasted my students all term as some powerpoints stretched over a few lessons. Each lesson can be adapted to meet the needs of your learners. My SEN students are visual learners. All font is in comic sans, to support dyslexic learners. Many activities contain word banks to suit lower level learners. The scheme of work can be easily adapted to meet the needs of higher level learners.
All lessons contain starters and plenaries. There are cross curricular links, which are highlighted on all lesson plans, including SMSC.
Teacher assessment can be carried out throughout, and there is a summative assessment at the end of the unit.
An introduction to coasts
Types of waves
How waves are formed
Deposition, transportation and erosion
Holderness Case Study
A short assessment that could be completed in 40 minutes for KS3 students. Includes questions on erosion, deposition, landforms and defences. Aimed at mixed ability classes - most pupils should be able to complete most of the sheet, with a couple of mildly challenging questions at the end. Now with assessment grid.
This lessons aims to allow students to gain an understanding of the different erosional processes that occur along the coast, followed by how these create a range of coastal landforms.
By the end of the lesson students will be able to answer the following key questions:
- What are the different processes of erosion and how do they work?
- What landforms are formed by coastal erosional and how are they formed?
11 part lesson series for the Cambridge IGCSE module The Natural Environment. This is the Coasts section of the module which is taught alongside Earthquakes & Volcanoes, Rivers, Weather and Climate & Natural Vegetation. Specifically designed for the new IGCSE. All lesson are for 50 minutes to 1 hour of teaching time. Includes supporting worksheets for lessons - no additional resources are required.
All lessons have a starter and lesson aim. Extension tasks also included. All PowerPoints in the same signature style.
1 - Waves
2 - Coastal processes
3 - Landforms processes
4 - Erosional landforms
5 - Depositional landforms
6 - Coral reefs
7 - Threats to coral reefs
8 - Mangroves

10 - Coastal case study
11 - Assessment
This is a brand new resource which is ideal for most GCSE syllabus or extremely able KS3 students. THESE also contain the relevant SOW and GCSE Progress Checks.
It is a full unit of work coasts. All of the lessons are place based on The Holderness Coast.
It examines geomorphic processes such as erosion, transportation, mass movement and weathering.
It looks in detail about the difference in waves, how waves form and the different landforms that they create
It clearly demonstrates the formation of all required coastal landforms of erosion and deposition. Again using real life examples at Holderenss to illustrate this.
It looks at why the Holderness Coast is so vulnerable to erosion and the impact that this has.
It has an extraordinarily well researched piece of work on how the Holderness Coast is protected from erosion. It uses detalied place based locations such as Withernsea, Hornsea, Bridlington and Mappleton.
Finally, it looks at the positive and negative impacts that human activity is having/has had on Holdereness. This includes a very detailed study of the impact of sea defences at Mappleton. The effect of climate change, using data and articles from The British geological Survey, It examines the impacts of Sites of Special Scientific interest at places such as Hornsea Mere
It gives access to my unique tool Steps to Success which massively helps students structure their answer for high tariff questions. There are videos, GCSE questions and brand new and most up to date research.
Its dead good !!!
if you are kind enough to buy this please leave feedback either positive or negative.
Lesson 1- Geomorphic processes at Holderness
Lesson 2- Detailed study of waves and their impact at Holderness.
Lesson 3 Why is Holderness so disitnctive? Including geological maps, reason for accelerated rates of eroison. Landforms at Flamborough Head , Spurn Head etc
Lesson 4 A detailed place based study of the types of sea defences found at various towns and villages along the coast and the impact of them
Lesson 5- The impact of Human activity on Holderness, including sea defences Sites of Special Scientific Interest , climate change
Coasts Revision Sheet can be printed doubled sided on either A4 or A3. This sheet is aimed at pupils who prefer more structured revision or lower ability students who need more support. Sheet numbered 1 - 12 as used in conjunction with revision clocks. Students to pick which sheet they'd prefer allowing for self differentiation.
A tarsia created to teach coastal erosion and coastal deposition to year 8.
Includes questions on: constructive waves, destructive waves, longshore drift, spit formation and the formation of stacks and stumps. The example of a spit Fraser Island is used that you might want to edit to fit your SOW.
A range of physical taboo words for the Rivers and Coasts topics.
Taboo is played in teams each player has 1 minute to describe as many bold words as possible without using the words below.
Adapted from Thinking Through Geography activity.
30 multiple choice questions for coastal landscapes for the AQA 9-1 specification. An answer sheet accompanies this resource. This is perfect for using Quick Key to quickly assess student understanding without any teacher marking.
