AQA GCSE 9-1 : Flipped Learning Revision Booklet- Tectonic Hazards.

AQA GCSE 9-1 : Flipped Learning Revision Booklet- Tectonic Hazards.

With the massive increase in content to plough through, we have found these invaluable. They follow the popular green revision guides (with the jokes) and are issued prior to the topic being taught for students to complete at home. Also designed to be used as part of a revision and exam preparation programme. This booklet covers the tectonics section of the physical geography unit with a clear and straightforward structure that students of all levels find easy to navigate. Focus is on key concepts, definitions and interactions. Each activity/page has a clear link to the revision guide page.

2017 EDEXCEL A2 GEOGRAPHY UNIT 4 TECTONICS pre release exam prep starting point

- For the June 2017 A2 geography edexcel unit 4 exam, based on the pre release for tectonics. - Three documents each comparing June 2017 to 3 other years where the pre release has been similar i.e. response to tectonic hazards. - Also includes the question, mark scheme and examiner report (from the Edexcel website) for these 3 previous years. - Would be a good starting point for students to have a read through these.

Indonesia Scheme of Work

Indonesia Scheme of Work

A short scheme of work on Indonesia. Targeted at low ability (SEN) year 7 but easily adapted (with some differentiation worksheet options included and suggestions offered). It could work well for primary students as well as KS3. This covered about 10 lessons and was easily extended by using additional tasks - again, some suggested. The unit explores the basic physical geography of Indonesia and looks at tectonic plates leading to a bit of research on the 2004 tsunami. The created some lovely work from this that resulted in a colourful display. The students also read Running Wild alongside completing this task.

This resource allows students to revise and even teach themselves. When they have the answer to help their colleague their levels of retention are much higher than just reading through notes. It is a very good way to allow the students revise by themselves and involves very little teacher involvement.Very important: When printing this resource, in order for it to work you need to:1) Go to Print.2) Print on both sides and flip on short edge.If you do not follow the above steps the answers will not appear on the flip side of the questions.

This short enquiry uses Google My maps to encourage students to examine a series of layers to analyse the location of historical tsunamis and by comparing their location in relation to plate boundaries, create their own explanation as to how tsunamis form (It is expected that they have some prior knowledge of what happens at different plate boundaries)Learning objectives:- Define a tsunami- Analyse the locations at risk from tsunamis- Explain the formation of a tsunami
