Rivers - Understanding the impact of floods and droughts

Rivers - Understanding the impact of floods and droughts

This resource is aimed at upper KS2 or lower KS3 and is part of a wider Rivers unit (see ‘Rivers - medium term plan’). First the presentation asks children to look at rainfall patterns in the UK. It then goes on to investigate how flooding can occur when too much rain falls in a short period of time. Different types of flooding (e.g. tidal flooding) are also covered. Then children explore the consequences of too little rain - i.e. drought - and the effects this can have. In the comprehension activity, children answer questions based on a text called ‘Floods and Droughts’. It is differentiated two ways: LA: Easier comprehension questions with an extension (pre-reading the text is also recommended). MA/UA: Harder comprehension questions with an extension. If you like this resource, please review it. I will happily send you a free resource of your choice in return for a review or useful suggestions/feedback. Contact me at eddiebray@yahoo.co.uk

gcse ks3 geography 1-9 data fieldwork statistics graphs charts presentation

A super lesson that explores the ways to present, analyse & explain data. I got students to create a traffic tally on a local road, whilst keeping then in the school grounds.

(6 resources) ks3 gcse 1-9 geography synoptic food resource production population water people

A super lesson that explores the impact the global food production could have upon the planet. Issues such as water, transportation & population growth are covered. A great synoptic task. GCSE style question added to test understanding. 2 styles of teacher feedback (marking) included to save time. Just print off & do yourself or get pupils to peer assess. Students use the information sheet (no need for books) to create an information sheet. I normally use a large piece of sugar paper & get pupils to work on their own. I would recommend printing the information sheet in colour & in A3 & laminating it, to be used again. The cartoon strip is best in A3 too. Links well to much of the new 1-9 specification and was used as part of the KS3 SOW.

Green Pen and reflective tasks to help the students progress alongside engaging topics and lot of high level vocab. All tasks scaffolded and ppts have teacher instructions and samples. Extension tasks with every lesson. Please review if you download! Thanks :)

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of  CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

Students consistently enjoy this lesson and enjoy learning about the unique animals and plants of each region. Depending on the class, this carousel could last 1-2 lessons and involves each student travelling to different habitats and completing a range of diverse and engaging tasks indepedently. You will need to set up the classroom into 4 large tables which can seat 1/4 of the class. I usually blue tack the sheets to the desks and surrounding walls and double print so that everyone can choose which tasks they’d like to complete at each station. Lots of potential for PA of answers and I usually put this work on display and talk through the IUCN red list/show them videos of the animals in China.

Y3/4 Polar Environments - Locate the Coldest Places and Compare to Others

Y3/4 Polar Environments - Locate the Coldest Places and Compare to Others

This is a Y3/4 topic (geography) lesson on polar environments. The lesson teaches pupils how we measure temperature, how the celcius scale works and what temperatures you would typically expect to record in given scenarios. If your school has access to a class set of thermometers, you could add an extra section where pupils measure temperatures around the classroom/school premises. The main activity involves researching the winter and summer average highs/lows in different parts of the world, including one location each in the Arctic and Antarctic. It is intended that pupils work in mixed ability pairs and they will need an ipad and an atlas in each pair.
