Why Choose Geography? KS3 Options Lesson WITH HURRICANE EXPERIENCE

Why Choose Geography? KS3 Options Lesson WITH HURRICANE EXPERIENCE

A lesson to tie in to the Royal Geographical Society Ambassadors visiting to inspire students to pick the subject at GCSE. Include the Hurricane Experience first. I have included a description of how below:The start of the lesson asks the students to shut their eyes and follow one instruction when given to them by the teacher. You will need TAs or other teachers for this task. Play the hyperlinks overlinked on the first slide. Use one TA to turn the fans on and throw leaves to blow over the students (3 fans are best). The other TA should run round with a moisture gun and spray the students imitating rain. You as the teacher hit a drum as thunder. When the siren hyperlink is sounded the students are to lay under the desks. Get the students to write of their feelings and experience of the disaster afterwards.The starter is the 5 Ws of geographical enquiry to a house that has had its possessions ripped away by the spiral motion of the Hurricane. The main is to write about their experience in the hurricane disaster with the extension asking them for 5 items they would have with them in an emergency of this magnitude. The main is also looking at the different careers in Geography and misconceptions about the subject at further study and employment- like you can only be a Geography teacher and that it does not lead to well-paid employment like Lawyers and the financial industry. I have included a worksheet and posters to put up in your classroom.
