Rivers - Investigating features of the River Thames on maps and satellite photos

Rivers - Investigating features of the River Thames on maps and satellite photos

This resource is aimed at upper KS2 or lower KS3 children and is part of a wider Rivers unit (see Rivers - medium term plan). In the presentation, children are taken on a journey from the source to the mouth of the River Thames. Starting at Thames Head, the source of the River Thames, children investigate maps and satellite photos and try to identify common river features along the way. Other locations include Windsor Castle, the Isle of Dogs in London and the mouth of the river at Southend-on-Sea. The writing-based activity challenges children to first label each map/satellite photo and then write a paragraph describing the location and river features they can see. It is differentiated two ways: LA - Children have maps/satellite photos and cloze procedure paragraphs to complete. MA/UA - Children have maps/satellite photos, a wordbank and write their own paragraphs. 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

MEKONG RIVER STUDY PART 1 - LIFE ON AND AROUND THE CAI BE PORT IN VIETNAM

MEKONG RIVER STUDY PART 1 - LIFE ON AND AROUND THE CAI BE PORT IN VIETNAM

This unit has a focus on life around the port of Cai Be - Vietnam. This settlement depends on the water within the Mekong system. The water level varies during the year - being at its height when the Mekong has greater flow levels. The residents around the water's edge and those living in boats on the water adapt to the water conditions. Sample studies of a small scale family business are included because they represent the dozens of enterprises within the settlement. But Cai Be is also a tourist attraction. It is a destination for tourist companies bringing visitors from Ho Chi Minh City. Others reach the destination by taking side excursions off Mekong River Cruises. Take your students on a boat ride through the port. Find out how one small company uses the resources from the Mekong floodplain. Venture into the side channel and see the larger processing factories. The attachments provide an opportunity to distribute hard copies. This is part 1 of a series of studies on the Mekong River - a major river of South East Asia

THE INCA RUINS OF MACHU PICCHU IN THE HIGH ANDES OF PERU -PRE-COLUMBIAN HISTORY

THE INCA RUINS OF MACHU PICCHU IN THE HIGH ANDES OF PERU -PRE-COLUMBIAN HISTORY

The history of pre-Columbian Empires forms part of the Year 8 History curriculum. (Australia) This unit also fits Destination and Location studies (UK Curriculum). It concentrates on the ruins of Machu Picchu and has a place if you are looking for World Heritage Sites or finding the 8 Wonders of the modern World. A great asset when studying history is to provide material that will provoke student interest. This unit will interest and challenge students by providing material that lay the foundation for the study of pre-Columbian History of Indian Empires in South and Central America. (Maya, Aztec and Inca) As the best known ruins of the Inca Empire Machu Picchu is a very photographic starting place. However - catch the train from Cusco. Take the journey into the thin air environment. Look over the settlement and with the aid of overlay titles recognise the archaeological significance of this ridge settlement. Ponder questions about its origin. Join the debate about its abandonment and then lead out into broader questions about pre-Colombian history via map and background questions provided as attachments in both colour and black and white. Machu Picchu is a very special place- challenging to reach but impossible to forget. Hopefully your students will understand that and be enthused to delve more into the history of the Central and South American Indian Empires.

Geography - Identifying the Human and Physical features of UK/London/ Edinburgh (3 worksheets)

Geography - Identifying the Human and Physical features of UK/London/ Edinburgh (3 worksheets)

These three worksheets would be perfect for children's independent work when learning about / understanding the difference between human and physical geographical features of locations. In this example, I chose a task involving the whole of the UK, a task focusing on London and another focusing on Edinburgh (these cities due to their visual differences and geographical distance, which could then lead to good plenary discussion when evaluating outcomes.) Children cut out pictures from each location, try to stick them by the matching place name in the table, then decide whether it is a physical or human feature. The London/Edinburgh sheets can both be used either in one or two lessons. The UK sheet will require atlases or Google Maps for children to look up key locations.
