OUP Geog.1 Year 7 Summer Homework

OUP Geog.1 Year 7 Summer Homework

This is a booklet is based on the Michelin i-Spy books. Students get points for spotting things in and around their homes and beyond. It covers all the chapters from the geog.1 textbook from OUP, and is designed to be a homework project for students to complete during the summer holidays. For each item they find they get points and these points lead to house points, merits, credits, stars (whichever reward system your school uses): I even give students a certificate for completing it. There are 20 pages which can be printed as an A5 booklet or you can choose which pages you want to use as each chapter from the textbook has a set of activities: my version has 16 pages based on the chapters I covered and some extra puzzle pages as well. There is a word puzzle and a place for the students to keep a record of their points as they collect them, there is a place for parents to sign confirmation that students actually did achieve what they say just in case you get a student that makes it up. There are spaces for images, due to copyright I have removed the pictures that I use, but they can easily by added.

Africa Escape Room : Geography

Africa Escape Room : Geography

Africa Escape Room The Africa Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode interesting facts about the continent of Africa. Perfect activity for geography! Maybe you are an ELA teacher reading a story about water sanitation in Africa. Maybe you are teaching about an African war. Maybe you are introducing the continents or map skills. Maybe your school is doing a fundraiser for Africa. This resource can be used so many ways! The Africa Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit code based on the decoders/clues. Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal interesting facts about Africa. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final code. Students can report the final code to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! No props needed!! This is a NO PREP, PRINT & GO Activity! The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes. You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included for differentiation. A “How to Decode” puzzles is also included. In addition to learning or reinforcing the subject matter, my escape rooms encourage teamwork and critical thinking. As a “timed” challenge, students will be engaged from beginning to end. This escape room includes 12 fun, colorful signs to take class pictures with at the end of the mission. Signs include “Puzzle Master”, “She did all the work”, “Genius”, “We did it”, “I Escaped” and more! Hang the pictures in your room, send them in a parent newsletter or share them on social media  An answer key and easy to follow teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes New Feature: I have included a 6 question formative to complete as proof of understanding. Each “clue” also has one question to answer to ensure comprehension for a total of 10 questions. Many times students rush to solve the puzzles without reading or comprehending what they read. The questions need to be answered correctly before they can win!

THE CASE OF THE SHRINKING LAKE OF AFRICA - LAKE CHAD

THE CASE OF THE SHRINKING LAKE OF AFRICA - LAKE CHAD

This unit is basically about an inland water system (Lake and connected River catchments and inflows). However, it crosses into other study areas such as - the SAHEL, desertification, global warming, climate change as environmental issues. At the human level it connects with problems relating to population increases affecting levels of income and development. As an additional issue it introduces the need for emergency aid programs and for overall plans for development. There is opportunity to search on the WEB for additional information. The shrinking of the water coverage within the Lake Chad Basins is seen through the series of Satellite photographs which allows students to follow the process by remote sensing. An added obstacle to development and living condition improvements is the presence and impact of Boko Haram within the the Lake Chad catchment area of Nigeria and along the borders of the Lake Chad Basins. At the foundation level this unit could be studied at Primary School/Lower Secondary levels as “the shrinking lake”. At Middle to Upper Secondary levels the material could be used to consider issues of Emergency Aid Relief (UN/Oxfam/Medicine sans Frontieres/Plan/World Food Relief/UN Refugee Programmes) . It also introduces research possibilities into global warming, global climate change, ITC/pressure cell changes that could be affecting global climates. Use the maps, diagrams, photographs to encourage in class discussion and debate. The attachments provide the flexibility for in class or home use by providing hard copies. The choice of black and white or colour attachments are provided. While this is basically a study of inland rivers and lakes its potential use is much broader.

DESERTIFICATION IN THE SAHEL OF AFRICA -CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES

DESERTIFICATION IN THE SAHEL OF AFRICA -CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES

In a world where populations pressures place strains on ecological systems the added strain of desertification adds an additional problem. The SAHEL of Africa is an area between the northern desert (Sahara) and the wetter climate zones of the savanna lands. It spans twelve African countries. Most of these have high levels of population pressure and growth. Through the use of maps, diagrams, photographs and selected situations this unit explains why the SAHEL is the major region where desertification is occurring. The unit explores the causes (natural and human) and recognises the consequences. Many of the pages are designed so that teachers can screen them and discuss them in class. The attachment pages are provided so that teachers can have flexibility in how they are used i.e., within the classroom or as individual home study activities. The story of the headman in the abandoned village of Northern Nigeria is provided so that students can gain some idea of the personal impact those affected by desertification experience. The pages providing posters (Oxfam and Unicef) indicate the emergency situationS faced by countries within the SAHEL. The aid programmes are created to assist in the short term. Coping with desertification in the longer term requires more complex and detailed planning.
