Geography in the News - International Edition - 16th April 2018

Geography in the News - International Edition - 16th April 2018

A fortnightly quiz that focuses on current world news from a geographic perspective. The quiz is designed to suit schools in all countries at the upper primary/lower secondary level with questions based on world news. There are also special editions for both the UK and Australia elsewhere on my TES shop. The quiz is published to the TES website every second Sunday of the school year. The quiz is made up of five mapping questions plus fifteen multiple choice questions + answers. The quiz is a PDF that you can download and print for your classes. The quiz is coloured but will photocopy well as b/w. The quiz is a PDF that you can download and print for your classes. A separate answer file is included, answers are on the second page of the file that is not displayed on the TES website (so students can’t do a search of the TES website to find the answers!). How are schools using Geography in the News? As a quiz that can be completed in as little as 6 minutes. Group research. As homework exercises that students can research the answers from a range of news websites. Weekly group competitions within the class over a term or the year. Weekly school geography competitions to promote the subject. As a discussion starter. In whatever way Geography in the News is being used it has been seen to engage students in Geography and improve their geographic knowledge by taking them beyond the classroom. Comments from teachers using the quiz: “… I have received only positive feedback from my Geography teachers. The students look forward to it each week and it has motivated them to become more aware of world events and current affairs. It doesn’t take too long before they make an effort to watch the news in order to win the title of Geo Hero for the week” “Fantastic idea. My students have become so engaged with world news and learning how geography is applied in the real world”. Geography in the News … a great way to engage your students with the world of Geography outside the classroom!

Thar Desert - India

Thar Desert - India

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

India's Climate

India's Climate

As India is such a large country it’s not surprising to find that the climate varies from place to place and that these variations have different impacts of people’s lives. These worksheets help students to understand climate graphs, how to read and draw them. They also give them a chance to develop their own graph and peer mark eachothers ideas with supporting comments.

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.
