Geography Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Geography Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Geography Keywords’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

What do you care about?

What do you care about?

This resource was used with KS4 students on a ‘collapsed timetable day’ to engage them environmental issues including the impact of plastics, loss of top soil and insects, and climate change. it offers links to online resources, and asks students to summarise points about all topics, and then argue for one of these issues using persuasive writing / presentation. Also suitable for sixth form students.

Year 8 2018 Why Choose Geography Options Lesson

Year 8 2018 Why Choose Geography Options Lesson

This lesson has been tweaked to encompass the lack of a link with Geography and careers with the students in our school. The main activity involves a worksheet that shows students a diversity of different careers stemming from two teachers within my department (myself and another). It is hoped that this increases students choosing Geography for GCSE. The lesson is as follows: Settler: Why choose Geography video Homework: Students are given links to research roles within Geography and with what has been completed in Geography, Starter: What is included in OCR B GCSE Geography. Main: Hurricane experience as part of Global Hazards unit of work with Tweet activity. Main (2): Careers activity based on university graduates from two teachers in Geography with worksheet. Development: Trips completed in Geography. Plenary: Questions.

MEKONG DELTA SERIES PART 4 - FOUR FUTURE CONCERNS

MEKONG DELTA SERIES PART 4 - FOUR FUTURE CONCERNS

A series of dams have already been built in the upper catchment areas of the Mekong Basin . The largest are within the area of China but other countries (Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia) have also constructed dams along the main Mekong or on tributaries of the Mekong. More are planned. These dams have both positive and negative consequences. On the positive side they store and control water flow which assist during dry seasons. They have the capacity to reduce the level of flooding in the lower basin. Negative impacts include the displacement of people as river valleys flood behind the walls of the dams in developing lakes. Of greater concern is the siphoning of water away from the Mekong and the reduction of sand/silt flows into the lower basin. In Cambodia the Tonle Sap Lake will reduce in volume and the reverse flows into the lake could cease. This annual reservoir of water which arrives when the Mekong is in flood may not be released into the lower rivers and the delta. Other concerns focus on the rising salinity levels within the waters of the delta which will impact on on crop yields. Global warming is another concern. As sea levels rise the impact of oncoming waves will affect the coastline. Already some coastal areas are retreating inland - although other areas are showing advances seaward. The ecological value of mangroves as buffer zones between the salt water environment and the fresh water distributaries is recognised. The rate of illegal mangrove clearance is a concern. This section covers a local village approach to protect and add to mangrove areas. The unit is summarised with a map and recognition of the top 10 world deltas. Clues are given so that students can cover the activity. A blank world map is provided and if help is needed a completed answer sheet is provided. However, don’t be too eager to use this. Allow your students to work through the clues to see how close they can get to the correct and complete table and world delta placements.
