Tracking Hurricane Maria - latitude/longitude exercise / real time case study in hurricane tracking.

Tracking Hurricane Maria - latitude/longitude exercise / real time case study in hurricane tracking.

This worksheet requires students to map the track of Hurricane Maria as it moves though the Caribbean. The first four positions of the hurricane are given in the accompanying table. Students can follow the path of the hurricane using information from the website: https://www.wunderground.com/hurricane/atlantic/2017/hurricane-maria and map its position over the next few days. As well as a mapping skills exercise you may find this useful in engaging your students if you are presently doing a unit of work on natural hazards. When Maria has run its course I will replace this worksheet with information that will then be available.

OUTSTANDING lesson on sustainability and conservation of the biosphere.

OUTSTANDING lesson on sustainability and conservation of the biosphere.

This lesson was created for a Year 10 group to recapture their love of the planet to enable them to think about Geography in a less separate way and encouraged them to generate solutions whilst teaching them about sustainability and conservation. It is a lesson where the students are in control and much of the discussion is for you to facilitate and them to discover among themselves. I found it really energised the group to learning more in depth about different ecosystems and encouraged them to think about their own role in society locally and their global impact. I ended the lesson by playing from 1.16.00 of the HOME youtube video (which every geography should watch!) and it worked amazingly well. Enjoy.
