1. Taiga: plant and animal adaptations to climate Edexcel B 8.2a

1. Taiga: plant and animal adaptations to climate Edexcel B 8.2a

This lesson starts with matching biomes. Then is a market place activity. The resources are a post card from their teacher who 'went to Canada'. You can add in your school name and children's names to the post cards in the blanks. I also advise organising the groups into 6 before the class, there is space for this in the ppt. You could differentiate because the climate post card is easier than the plants and animals post card. The key words have been highlighted in all. They make visual posters from their post card and teach each other about their information. Afterwards they have to write back to the teacher being explicit about how abiotic and biotic features are interdependent. This covers the new Edexcel B 8.2a Specification. I used it for year 10's. Some people call Taiga the Boreal forest.

Hurricane - formation, impact and management

This is one of the most active and destructive hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean area on records. Thousands of people (including British nationals) have been affected by hurricanes this hurricane season. There is never a better opportunity to teach about hurricanes whether or not it's on your LS for T1. Here we have three (3) lessons that explore the science behind hurricane formation, an analysis of the social and economic impact of hurricanes and finally a look at ways hurricanes can be managed to minimise the loss of lives. All the resources to deliver the lessons are included with the lessons. Just download and teach.

Whats The Weather Like On Mountains?

Whats The Weather Like On Mountains?

The weather in the mountains is very unpredictable and can change incredibly fast. One minute it can be fine and clear, the next there could be a blizzard with howling winds and driving snow, and then back to being clear and calm. Climbers need to be prepared for all eventualities and carry suitable equipment’s with them at all times and all these weather types can strike within the same one hour! These worksheets draw on the students senses as to describe these weather conditions.
