Nature Mapping

Nature Mapping

In this activity students work as a class to make a nature map of their school. Students take a walk around the school looking for signs of nature, drawing and taking notes about what they see and reporting back their findings to the class. They then create a new map that shows all the features of biodiversity they found in their school yard.

CHINA- Creative and independent activities- SEN/ G+TFRIENDLY

CHINA- Creative and independent activities- SEN/ G+TFRIENDLY

Collection of lessons and worksheets that I created for a particularly challenging year 7, with a wide academic gap and poor literacy skills. The students really enjoyed learning about China and it’s particularly good to run the SoW over the Chinese New Year. 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 :)

Chinese Panda Conservation- Geography Literacy based activity- fully SCAFFOLDED.

An independent entire lesson that I set as cover work. The students engage well with this activity and enjoy learning about the Panda’s and the vocabulary which is varied to challenge G+T students. There are 3 separate tasks, which have potential to be peer assessed and shared, the last task is arguing against a quote and with sentence starters success criteria. Please review if downloaded! 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.

OCEAN PLASTIC- 3 whole lessons with IT based pairs activity- fully scaffolded & engaging!

This resource could be used as part of an Environmental Issues SoW. The aims are to reduce the amount of plastic used in your school through the class creating persuasive adverts encouraging their peers to buy reusable bottles. Each lesson uses a variety of learning techniques based on enquiry and all video links are in the notes section of each slide. I will then display the students work around the school and see if it has any impact! Water consumption is incredibly important for concentration and should be encouraged within the school environment. These lessons could also be used to create cross curricular links in DT and Art and potentially provide the design for school merchandise! Please review if you download! Enjoy :)

Intro to COASTS- Ideal for assessing independent learning ability. Diverse and lengthy tasks!

Intro to COASTS- Ideal for assessing independent learning ability. Diverse and lengthy tasks!

I created this for my students as a more engaging alternative to textbook activities. It introduces the coast, key vocab, types of waves, true/false quiz, and discusses pebble vs sans beaches using beaches in the UK. The tasks are extremely diverse and tackle a range of geography skills. Every task is differentiated with a challenge task and examples. Should be printed on A3 in colour and given 1 per pair. Will take at least one full hour, if not two! The second worksheet is matched to the video which is about the South Australian coastline and contains a series of questions matched to the video and the tasks slowly get more difficult, ending with a persuasive exercise about species management. -FULL LESSON Please review if you download!

great barrier reef environmental issues global warming geography lesson AQA OCR edexcel 1-9

great barrier reef environmental issues global warming geography lesson AQA OCR edexcel 1-9

All the resources for an entire lesson about the great barrier reef. Pupils have an information sheet (best printed in A3 & colour). This provides them with the detail that they need about why the GBR is good for people, its threats & how it is sustainably managed. This information can be used to create a variety of work, but I find that a cartoon strip works best (included). There is a structured Q & sheet and subsequent SPaG sheet that I print on green paper to address the needs of most schools literacy policy. The assessment also put pupil learning into context & can be peer/self or teacher assessed. I have even included a teacher feedback sheet that is used to speed up the marking process. These tasks actually take about (roughly) 5 lessons to complete.

Why don't Polar Bears eat Penguins? Antarctica.

Why don't Polar Bears eat Penguins? Antarctica.

This is a lesson that I have created for a unit titled ‘Impossible places’. The lesson looks at Antarctica primarily looking at it’s location, climate and animals. The lesson begins with an odd one out activity followed by objectives. The students locate Antarctica and create a table outlining the difference between the Arctic and Antarctic. Students then complete an animal fact file for some of the animals found in Antarctica. (sometimes I place teddy bears around the room with each sheet at treat it like an expedition!) This activity comes with differentiated work sheets. The lesson ends by looking at a short video and a short plenary. A great lesson that students can really get their teeth into!

NGSS Aligned: Simulating A United Nations Panel on Trophy Hunting

NGSS Aligned: Simulating A United Nations Panel on Trophy Hunting

B. SUGGESTED USES Prior Knowledge: Students do not necessarily require much prior knowledge. However, for students to understand, and communicate, some of the important ecological, conservationist arguments, they benefit from a conceptual understanding of food webs, ecological interactions, and natural selection. They should be able differentiate between credible and non-credible sources, and will benefit from information about effective communication/persuasion skills. Students adept in PowerPoint or Google Slides may benefit as well. Implementing the Lesson: In a class of 24 or so, I usually make 5 or 7 students judges (an odd number ensures one side wins), and the remaining students are divided up (somewhat) evenly into the pro and against positions. If there are more students than positions, I allow some positions (economist, ecologist, conservationist, and land owner) to be represented by more than one student. Because the project incorporates so many of the concepts within ecology, I spend a significant amount of time on it. I usually give students two or three classes to do research and work on their presentation (judges are working on their tasks as well). I encourage students to be pithy with their presenetion to avoid having the process last too many classes. Then, depending on the length of the presentations, and the number of questions that the judges ask during each presentation, the UN simulation can take a full class or two. I allow the presenters to begin their reflection paper in class, while the judges deliberate. Finally, the judges announce their decision, with an explanation. I allow the judges to make any decision, with any stipulations, that they deem fitting. In my experience, the students really enjoy this activity, and learn a lot about an important issue.
