Impacts of Tourism- DRAMA based activity- Fully Differentiated Lesson for SEN/Mixed Ability

Impacts of Tourism- DRAMA based activity- Fully Differentiated Lesson for SEN/Mixed Ability

The students always love this lesson as it involves them taking on Tourists or Resident roles in 5 different countries. The students get to explore how tourism impacts different people across the world using coloured role cards ( that you must laminate!) and discussing the various types of tourism and positive/negative effects that the industry has. All the cards have been made specifically for this lesson and are differentiated so that you may choose to give the higher ability students the resident cards and the lower ability the tourist cards as they contain slightly less complicated vocabulary and you can target your questions much more easily. The lesson contains a variety of assessment techniques and the student assessor roles always work particularly well- if you have a large group then use 4/5 student assessors. The exit cards only take 2/3 mins and I always insist on complete silence so the students can leave what was a high energy lesson very calmly. Ignore the homework slide at the end! Was made for a low ability group that couldn't cope with any more demanding homework. Enjoy!

Rocks

Rocks

4 resources for the study and assessment of the 'Rocks' chapter. First resource is a 34 slide PPT. This explains how each rock type is formed and gives two detailed examples of each. Includes activity/homework slides (one to be adapted depending on the workbook/textbook you use). Colourful with images and links to Youtube animations. Second resource is a homework 'Tic-Tac-Toe'. This lists lots of different kinds of homework assessments based on rocks and allows the student to choose their own HW depending on their learning style. A cloze test is also attached. This is a simple gap-fill exercise which can be used as an AFL activity, for Hw or as a short exam. Finally, there is a revision worksheet which again can be used for HW, class activity or as a simple exam. *For a 2 page revision handout on Rocks, see 'My shop'.

EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES COUNTRIES & FLAGS PRESENTATION & QUIZ

EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES COUNTRIES & FLAGS PRESENTATION & QUIZ

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING AWARENESS OF EUROPE, ITS COUNTRIES AND ITS FLAGS - 56 COUNTRIES, 75 QUESTIONS, 208 SLIDES! Create an instant introduction to EUROPE and help your students develop their awareness of European countries, capital cities and flags with this whole-group presentation and quiz. There are 56 countries featured in the quiz. Each country is presented individually with its flag - as you show the slides, encourage students to shout out the country names as they appear - this tends to aid memory! The presentation is followed by a series of 75 questions. The sets of questions are structured slightly differently to differentiate the challenge a little. 50 questions focus on the particular country and flag, with the final 25 questions also looking at the capital cities of those countries. The quiz works particularly well with several teams - encourage each team to choose a European-themed team game. Teams can either take it in turns to answer a question, but it’s also great fun, and keeps up a lively pace, to play as a SHOUT IT OUT! quiz - whoever shouts out the correct answer first wins the point! Present each country and flag quickly first - there are usually a certain number of countries and flags which students may not know, or be unaware of. Ideal for the annual EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES celebration, but great fun at any time of the school year too. The resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format - the presentation/quiz and a quick overview. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. ENJOY THE QUIZ!

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".
