Conserving Nature: KS4 - Uganda Case Study

Conserving Nature: KS4 - Uganda Case Study

Economic development in low income countries leads to significant social, environmental and cultural change. One scheme in Uganda is to increase electricity generation by building more hydroelectric dams. The work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) aims to ensure that new developments such as this not only ‘do no harm’, but actively bring benefit to both the environment and local communities. In this activity students use a range of resources to build a case study about the positive and negative impacts of this scheme. Learning Outcomes: Students learn about the environmental and social effects of an economic development initiative in a LIC. Students write a case study looking at the positive and negative impacts

Conserving Nature: KS4 - Conservation Conundrum

Conserving Nature: KS4 - Conservation Conundrum

Technological development in low income countries such as Uganda is important for improving the economy and providing a better quality of life for its population. However, quite often these developments carry a risk of negatively affecting the environment and the lives of local people. The work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) aims to ensure that new developments not only ‘do no harm’, but actively bring benefit to both biodiversity and local communities. In this activity students look at the positive and negative impacts of building more hydroelectric dams on Ugandan rivers. They use this information to write a balanced argument. Learning Outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and how it can protect biodiversity loss Students write a balanced argument, considering environmental, economic and social issues

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Development Decisions

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Development Decisions

The balance between providing resources for a growing and technologically advanced population and protecting biodiversity is an ever-increasing problem. In this activity, students gain an insight into the work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) and model the conflict between development and the needs of people and the environment. They role play a stakeholder meeting between local villagers and developers, mediated by conservation researchers, to see if they can come to an agreement on proposed development ideas. Learning Outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and why it is important Students discuss negative and positive environmental and social impacts of development to make a decision.

Matching animals to their habitat

Matching animals to their habitat

This lesson is suitable for children in KS1 and lower KS2. It is part of a wider unit about London Zoo and is an ideal preparatory lesson for a trip there. It can also be used as a Science lesson as part of the Living Things and their Habitats programme of study. The animals have escaped at the zoo and the keeper needs your help! The colourful presentation first encourages children to describe the features of animals. A group activity then challenges children to match animals to their names, description and habitat. It includes a variety of animals including fish, birds, mammals, insects and amphibians. In the activity, children match animals to their description and habitat. It is differentiated three ways: LA - Children just match animals to their habitats. MA -Children match animals to their description and habitat. UA - Children fill in the names of the animals and match them to their description and habitat. Finally, an extension activity challenges children to classify animals as fish, birds, mammals, insects or amphibians. If you like this resource, please review it!
