Destructive and constructive waves (Types of waves)

Destructive and constructive waves (Types of waves)

This is a GCSE where the learning is focus on comparing constructive and destructive waves. The lesson will allow students to analyse the different types of waves and how they affect the coast differently. Key facts about the lesson are: 1. The lesson meets the requirements of the new GCSE specifications. However, it can be adapted for a top set year 9 group. 2. The lesson starts by exploring how waves affect the coast using the concepts swash and backwash. There is a great little activity that will allow students to differentiate between swash and backwash. The lesson then moves on to compare constructive and destructive waves. A very straightforward activity is used here; students will be able to access the information easily and the teacher can then focus on writing/exam response techniques here. The lesson will become analytical now where students have to apply the knowledge to three different scenarios. 3. The lesson is differentiated. There are visual aids including diagrams, images and a video clip. There are also challenge activities throughout to stretch students' understanding. There are some clever tasks that are designed to get students to apply their knowledge. This is key to doing well in the new GCSE specifications. 4. The lesson is planned in detail and all the resources for teaching the lesson are included in the ppt; starter, learning activities with resources, clear outline of learning tasks and a plenary. Just download and teach!
