Coasts bundle

Coasts bundle

Three very good GCSE (can be adapted for KS3 if needed) lessons on coasts. One lesson on wave and tide formation, another on constructive and destructive waves and as bonus an introduction lesson on coasts. All three lessons have all the elements and the resources required to deliver them. Key concepts and skills covered in the lessons are: 1. How wind, earth and the moon form waves and tides? 2. Swash an backwash 3. Destructive and constructive waves 4. Map skills; using grid references and symbols 5. Diagrams and sketch maps 6. Exam questionnning

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!

Waves and tides - How they form?

Waves and tides - How they form?

This is a GCSE lesson introducing students to waves. The lesson allows students to discover what are waves and tides and how they form. 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 the features of a wave through the use of diagrams and keywords. It then moves on to look at how waves form. The second half of the lesson focuses on tides and how they form before ending with a challenge task. 3. The lesson is differentiated through the use of images, video clips, keyword banks and diagrams. Students will be engaged and challenged regardless of their level. 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.

Coasts

Coasts

This bundle contains a whole unit of work for coasts. This unit is designed for year 8's and aims to give them the basic knowledge and skills in the lead up to GCSE's. In addition to lessons, this bundle contains assessments and fieldwork that can be carried out.

Coastal Fieldwork

Coastal Fieldwork

This lesson aims to allow students to conduct fieldwork based around the coast. This lesson contains 3 individual lessons: Lesson 1 is a preparation lesson, where students think about what could be investigated at a coastal location, what methods and sampling could be used, in addition to coming up with a hypothesis. This lesson would need to be followed by conducting the fieldwork in a coastal location. Included in this lesson is an activity book that can used at a coastal location with groynes. Lesson 2 is an assessment based lesson which gets students to present their findings, analyse their findings, before drawing conclusions of their findings. Lesson 3 is then the feedback element where students are encouraged to improve their fieldwork skills. NOTE - This lesson is based around Southend but is easily adaptable for any location with a groyne. Also note that MG03 is based around AO4 on the GCSE specification, but this has been reduced to what is expected from a year 8 student.

Holderness Coast

Holderness Coast

This lesson aims to allow students to gain an understanding of what is happening at the Holderness Coastline. It looks at the erosion taking place and the impact this is having on the local area. This is then followed by looking at the management strategies that Holderness has implement and the impact this has caused. By the end of the lesson students will be able to answer the following key questions: - What is happening at the Holderness Coastline? - How is this causing problems for the villages? - How are they protecting the Holderness coast?

Coastal Management

Coastal Management

This lesson aims to allow students to gain an understanding of the different ways to manage the coast. It looks at a range of soft and hard engineering strategies, and encourages students to think about the advantages and disadvantages of these strategies, before debating which of these would be the best for a particular coast (this lesson uses Southend but this can easily be changed for a different location). By the end of the lesson students will be able to answer the following key questions: - What are the different types of coastal management? - Which coastal management is the best and why?

Coastal Assessment

Coastal Assessment

This lesson is an assessment based around coasts, designed for year 8's. This includes the assessment and all associated resources, in addition to a marking grid, and the feedback lesson, which also includes action points sheets (these will allow students to improve on certain areas, based on the weaknesses in their test). NOTE - MGO1 is equivalent to the AO1 and AO2 objectives at GCSE. These have then been broken down into what I expect year 8 students to be able to achieve.

How we use the coast

How we use the coast

This lesson aims to allow students to gain an understanding of the different ways we can use the coasts, in addition to the different conflicts that this can cause. By the end of the lesson students will be able to answer the following questions: - Who uses coastal areas? - Why might conflict occur along the coast line?

Transportation and Depositional Landforms

Transportation and Depositional Landforms

This lesson aims to allows students to gain an understanding of longshore drift, deposition, and depositional landforms. By the end of the lesson students will be able to answer the following questions: - What other processes occur at the coast? - Why does sediment get deposited along the coast? - What is longshore drift and how does it work? - What other landforms are formed at the coast and how are they formed?
