AUSTRALIAN LANDFORM - THE DISSECTED SEDIMENTARY SANDSTONE PLATEAU OF LIMMEN

AUSTRALIAN LANDFORM - THE DISSECTED SEDIMENTARY SANDSTONE PLATEAU OF LIMMEN

This is a unit that fits into the study of landforms. If you have geomorpholgy as part of your course then this unit will be a useful addition. This unit can stand alone or it could be used as an interest in tourism within the newly proclaimed Limmen National Park of the Northern Territory of Australia. Take your students off the main unsealed central road of the Limmen National Park and you will find the so-called “Lost Southern City”. It has formed over 150 million years through the processes and actions of weathering, transportation, erosion. The diagram sequence will explain the formation of the sandstone columns, pillars and intervening valleys. The photo interpretation worksheet (colour or black and white) is added to check the level of understanding of your students. If you are searching for a unit that is relatively short, contains interest and isa ready-to-handout package then this unit will ease your pressure of preparation time. Photographs, diagrams and maps are included.

(5 resources) geography gcse ks3 rural effects responses tourism human impacts lake district uses

A super lesson that explores the cause, effects & responses of tourism in the Lake District. Students use the information sheet (no need for books) to create a cartoon strip. I would recommend printing the information sheet in colour & in A3 & laminating it, to be used again. The cartoon strip is best in A3 too. Links well to much of the new 1-9 specification and was used as part of the KS3 SOW.

Sustainable tourism assessment

Sustainable tourism assessment

This is a short ( 3 mins approx) mid-unit test to check students understanding on the concept of sustainable tourism. It could also easily be set as a classwork or homework task. Students must show they can define sustainable tourism, explain the negative impacts of mass tourism, and annotate an ecolodge with its sustainable features. This was originally written for year 9 as an introduction to the Unit 1 travel and Tourism Btec course ( and unit 1 examination). It could also easily be used for Ks3 Geography. Would go well with my other resource on ’ Sustainable tourism & Ecolodges’.

KARUMBA - THE ONLY MAJOR PORT ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA AUSTRALIA

KARUMBA - THE ONLY MAJOR PORT ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA AUSTRALIA

Through a series of 5 stories students will gain an understanding of the layout and function of this remote port. Many Australians are aware that Karumba exists but regard it as a destination for fishing for Barramundi and crocodile spotting. The “Gery nomads” - retired travellers usually towing caravans or arriving in motor homes - often put Karumba on their bucket list of places to visit. There is much more to Karumba than fishing and crocodile viewing. Take your students along the stretch of the Karumba Port near the mouth of the Norman River and there are large buildings which indicate other functions. Learn about Krys the crocodile of unbelievable proportions. Pass the rusting wreck in the mangroves and wonder how it arrived there. Go past the sign where cattle yards exist and recognise the prohibited access. Go past the dredge as it moves back into deeper water to dredge the channel from the deeper waters of the Gulf of Carpentaria and recognise by research how important that process to the population of the town. Look inland to discover the very large Century zinc mine at Lawn Hill and find out how it is connected to the zinc pellet processing plant at Karumba. Then, like the recent advertising programme from the local tourist operators, become aware of the environmental assets in landscape and a range of bird life. Understand why they have included their heading “There’s more to Karumba than fishing and crocodiles”. Find out why those visiting Karumba need to come in the cooler months of the year and avoid the hotter summer months. The attachments assist student understanding. The fill-in attachments could be used to support a type of tutorial approach where the numbered sections matching the page numbers could be screened and the students with some discussion could fill in the answers to provide a record of Karumba. Enjoy the excursion to Karumba but if you are involved in bird watching in the mangroves or on the lowland marshes on the entry road from Normanton, take time to read the warning -“crocodiles eat birds and bird watchers”.
