OCR A Level Geography - Disease Dilemmas - 6 Mark Questions

OCR A Level Geography - Disease Dilemmas - 6 Mark Questions

For the OCR A Level Geography specification, these resources give an outline of how to answer 6 mark questions for Paper 3: Disease Dilemmas. One resource gives an outline as to how to answer the questions successfully, with reference to AO1 criteria and with suggested writing structures. There is a real focus on the cause and effect link given in the question, and how to write a thematic answer that picks up on more complex geographical ideas. The second resource gives a range of 6 mark questions with planning grids - these are focused on Section 1 of the Disease Dilemmas topic (relationship between factors and prevalence of disease).

ANIMAL ODDITIES PART 2 -THREE ANIMALS OF THE RED SAND DUNES OF NAMIBIA - SW AFRICA

ANIMAL ODDITIES PART 2 -THREE ANIMALS OF THE RED SAND DUNES OF NAMIBIA - SW AFRICA

Each of these animals adapt to the hot Namibian Desert in ways that are a little odd. See how the lizard copes when it moves across the very hot sand. Find out how the black dune beetle collects and then drinks the benefits of the Atlantic fog. Find the large white spider and understand why it becomes annoyed and how it operates a strange tactic to avoid predators - and annoying guides. This unit can stand on its own or it can be a part of this 3 -part series. If you are investigating deserts, animal adaptations, locational studies (Africa) or widening world locational knowledge this unit will assist. Go into the large red sand hills. Find these animals, but be careful where you place your feet. This material has appeal at Primary levels and as a support for units on hot deserts at Secondary levels. The attachments will help to test the student level of understanding.

FRANCINE THE BURROWING FROG OF THE HOT DESERT - ANIMAL ODDITY PART 1

FRANCINE THE BURROWING FROG OF THE HOT DESERT - ANIMAL ODDITY PART 1

Students are usually interested in the unusual, the different or the odd. Here's an example of 3 -probably 4 - animals of the desert who in terms of their basic biology don't seem to be suited to the hot desert environment. This first unit about a burrowing frog shows how this variety of frog - a water-loving animal can sustain itself in basically a water-deficient environment. This can be used as a standalone unit in Primary or lower Secondary classes. For some Primary students the vocabulary and concepts may be a little difficult. If that's the case you can just screen the material and discuss Francine's story. At a more detailed level this unit is about adaptation and species sustainability. You may wish to include it in your destination studies; arid lands studies or location studies or you may just be looking for something ready made for your students. The debate at the end is designed to check student level of understanding. The attachments are included so that you can provide copies - either in black and white or colour. Find out how Francine copes in two environments - the underground micro-environment and the above ground macro-environment. This is part 1 of the series on animal oddities.
