Geography in the News Quiz - AUSTRALIAN EDITION - 25th September

Geography in the News Quiz - AUSTRALIAN EDITION - 25th September

The 25th September 2017 edition of a weekly quiz that focuses on world news of the week from a geographic perspective. This week's quiz has a number of questions based on Hurricane Irma and its path through the Caribbean Sea. The quiz is designed to suit the Australian Curriculum (Years 5 to 10) with questions based on Australian and world news. The quiz is placed on the TES website every Sunday at the beginning of the school week. The quiz is made up of five mapping questions plus fifteen multiple choice questions + answers. (note: the map doesn't display in the previews it is on the second page but the standard of maps can be seen if you look at the preview of the UK versions of the quiz also on my store). The quiz is a PDF that you can download and print for your classes. A separate answer file is included. The Geography in the News quiz for Australian schools is also available as subscription with the 2017 Semester 2 order form available from my website : www.geographyfocus.com How are schools using Geography in the News? 1. As a quiz that can be completed in as little as 6 minutes. 2. Group research. 3. As homework exercises that students can research the answers from a range of news websites. 4. Weekly group competitions within the class over a term or the year. 5. Weekly school geography competitions to promote the subject. 6. 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".

Base layer map - GIS without the computer

Base layer map - GIS without the computer

A simple mapping exercise that is really creative. Get students used to reading and interpreting atlases as well as looking at how layering maps provide useful ways to 'see' patterns. Some examples of my students work have been included along with an example of feedback. The feedback template is with thanks from the wonderful Mrs Humanities Blog.

Mexico City Earthquake 2017

Mexico City Earthquake 2017

A lesson that I have put together in response to this weeks EQ. I have attached examples of student's work for reference. Spellings and grammar maybe poor - I work in an international school with EAL students. If my own literacy is dire, again I apologise - I just wanted to get this planned and uploaded so people can use it :). The only extra resources needed are laptops. A massive thank you for the Geog Blog for the peer assessment mat, group work roles and SWOT mats. This bought for resource has been invaluable for my teaching.
