geography series of lessons on modifying the landscape for water people environment social

All the resources for a series of lessons (4 to 5) about modifying the landscape for water. This looks at the social, economic & environmental impacts of the Elan valley to Birmingham water transfer scheme by gravity. Pupils have an information sheet (best printed in A3 & colour). This provides them with the detail that they need about the water transfer scheme. This information can be used to create a variety of work, but I find that an article works best (included) along with a SEND article sheet. 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.
