Looking for pictures about rivers, water or the sea?Here is a set of three PowerPoints, which focus on water bodies, rivers and coastal images. In total, there are 113 different photos.These could be used to make a very impressive eye catching display. The photos could be mixed and sorted in different ways.The photos would also make excellent settings for stories which are linked to the water topic. For older students, they could also look and discuss the human and physical geography in the the different pictures.Students could sort these into the different parts of the water cycle. Students can use the different images in topics about rivers, seas or oceans. They could even be used to inspire students during a water - related art lesson.

T4W Talk For Writing Geography: The Life of Rivers

T4W Talk For Writing Geography: The Life of Rivers

A PPT and article to help students understand the structure of an informative and descriptive article on the life of a river. I used this in Geography to introduce the topic of Rivers, but this could lead students into writing about another feature or process such as volcanoes, deforestation or coasts.Includes a picture map for the first paragraphs, pre-selected words to warm up with (different from the technical words in bold in the article) and a "boxing it up" slide and colour coding slide. Enjoy!

UK's Uplands, Lowlands and Rivers

UK's Uplands, Lowlands and Rivers

Title: Where are the UK's uplands, lowlands and rivers?Aim: To identify the relief and landscapes of the UK.AQA GCSE > Living with the Physical Environment > Physical Landcapes in the UK > UK Physical Landscapes. (But could be easily adapted for KS3 or a decent cover lesson)Planned and Taught May 2017This is that strange line of the spec which sits above Rivers and Coasts. We've decided to teach it before Rivers, but it would make just as much sense to teach it before you start Coasts.I've done my best to 'sex up' a part of the spec that has Gove written all over it. The lesson therefore starts with some 'ubergeography', which is designed to prompt class discussion, then your students can crack on with the map work. You'll need an Atlas.Thanks for looking.Please note. My lessons are planned and taught using smart notebook, but a powerpoint version is also included here.
