Planning - Natural Disasters/Hazards

Planning - Natural Disasters/Hazards

Lesson plans aimed at year 6 children (can be adapted to suit younger KS2 children) on Natural Disasters/Hazards. This unit of work was created to support children’s understanding of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Hurricanes. Many activities are hands on and have cross curricular themes running through them. Children will be able to act out a hurricane talk show, create a volcano from basic materials, design posters and information pages for staying safe, and engage in group and whole class activities. There are 5 lesson plans within this, as well as the accompanying activities needed. No presentations attached. I hope this helps with your planning.

A complete Geography assembly on the topic of Extreme Earth (volcanoes, tornadoes, tsunamis, etc) in a "Britain's Got Talent" format!

The assembly aims to promote a range of work done in class including persuasive writing in English, landscape paintings in Art, gymnastics in P.E. and a musical performance! The children also learned the skill of a good pun (or bad puns in this case!).

Hurricanes Wordsearch Sheet Keywords KS3 Settler Starter Cover Lesson Geography Weather

Hurricanes Wordsearch Sheet Keywords KS3 Settler Starter Cover Lesson Geography Weather

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Hurricanes'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Comparing the weather of St Lucia and the UK

Comparing the weather of St Lucia and the UK

This resource is designed for KS2 children. It is part of a wider unit called Exploring St Lucia which is designed to teach children about a contrasting non-European country. First the presentation introduces children to the tropical climate zone (dry and wet seasons) and its associated weather (i.e. high temperatures and high rainfall). It compares this with temperate climates such as that of the UK. Children are also encouraged to interpret data from a climate graph for St Lucia. Finally, other aspects of a tropical climate are covered including tropical storms and hurricanes. The accompanying differentiated true/false activity helps children to recap what they have learned about the climates of St Lucia and the UK. There is also an extension activity.
