India's Plaines And Plateaus

India's Plaines And Plateaus

India is a vast county, nearly fourteen times the size of the United Kingdom! Within its borders it’s home to environments which include cool mountains in the north, hot, dry plains in the center and hot, humid tropics to the south. You have already looked at the Ganges River, Himalayas and Thar Desert. These worksheets help the students to explore these environments and create their own physical map of India using everyday materials to help visualise the counties environments.

The Thar Desert is otherwise known as the Great Indian Desert, is the seventh largest desert in the world and acts as a natural boundary between India and Pakistan. It is the most hostile region within the Indo-Pacific, however around 4500 years ago it was home to one of the world’s oldest tribes, the Mohenjo Daro and Harappa. These worksheets look at how plants and animals adapt to life in the desert with the students designing the ultimate desert animal which is then peer assessed by their classmates

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!

What is the TRF?- Independent worksheet. Ideal for assessing independent learning ability.

I created this resource for my students to use whilst I was away. It introduces them to the TRF and contains 6 different tasks that are wide ranging and matched to different skills & abilities. This took my students two lessons to complete but could be used with high ability groups for one lesson/ can be used very flexibly. Ensure you print in colour and give 1 per pair. Extras needed: Blank world map Climate Graph for Brunei
