AQA 9-1 Geography GCSE - Soft Engineering

AQA 9-1 Geography GCSE - Soft Engineering

This presentation covers the different types of soft engineering that are used to minimise the impact of flooding in the UK. It covers washlands and river monitoring, education and floodplain zoning. There is a group work/GIS exercise in this presentation and a feature that I have called 'Fieldwork Focus' in which students are encouraged to consider why Uttoxeter might be vulnerable to flooding and what they recommend is done about it. The presentation features some striking images and straightforward tasks and questions, too.

Flash Flood case study Boscastle - Geography

Flash Flood case study Boscastle - Geography

LESSON COVERS:the causes (meteorological) and effects of the Boscastle flash floodLESSON INVOLVES:starts with a spot the difference activity, then shows a video of flood footage from which students have to note down effects (and knock on effects as a challenge). They then use a video and a differentiated selection of key words to write an explanation for why it happened (looking purely at weather conditions). They then practice the skills of annotation to music (you can modify this task however you wish - I play "Barbara Streisand" by Duck Sauce and get them to pass their annotation sheet on every time they hear the words "Barbara Streisand". I make sure they know who to pass to to create a whole class chain. They love it - it generates a lot of excitement and hurried writing - the song is hyperlinked to the text box). The lesson ends with a task menu for different skill sets.RESOURCES:there are sheets for the annotation task and an extra info sheet for the final demonstration task if student feel they need it.Please review with any feedback :-)
