Geography Endangered Animals

Geography Endangered Animals

This lesson explains why some animals are endangered, what this means and how to help. The 'Top-Trumps' style cards are for the children to use (with their research from computers and books) to draw and write about endangered animals of their choice. I cut the cards out ahead of the lesson and stuck as many as the children completed in thetime into their books. (This resource uses ideas and images from a resource by TES author ghfrdsa)

Pupils will know what the definition of a desert is and name an example of at least one and know how desert plants are adapted to their environment.The resources are differentiated so that higher ability pupils can ask further / higher level questions and the structure of the enquiry sheet can suggest/prompt lower ability pupils for answers. the plenery is a fun idea and it works well with year 8 pupils... surprising how much they can recall.

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

I lived and I worked in Qatar for a year. I know that while you need to teach about Qatar History, the books you are given are not easy to use and certainly won't last you a whole year and so I took the books I was given and I extended the tasks to produce a more interesting and more supportive learning environment, ideal for both the teachers and their students to get a lot more out of this topic.

New AQA Ecosystems revision cards

New AQA Ecosystems revision cards

Pupils cut out the revision cards and fold them down the middle dotted line so they have the questions on one side and the answers on the other. The cards include ecosystems, rainforests and hot deserts. The case studies I have used are Malaysia for rainforests and the Thar Desert but the cards are easily edited to reflect any different case studies.
