Geography - Skills - Describing Places

(0)
A big lesson with lots of opportunity for differentiation and engagement, as well as paired or group work. Basically, students learn how to describe places, and then apply this skill. It would work well as a skills building lesson in KS3, or as an end of term type lesson with either KS3 or KS4. There are differentiated resources for lower and higher, and a number of ways in which the activities could be undertaken (which are in the lesson plan). There are teacher notes and a lesson plan. The activities are clear, and there are Superstar extension activities. --- The main aim is… This is a big lesson which could be used as an end of term activity, or as a skills building lesson. Students either learn or develop their geographical terminology and then apply / demonstrate using photos of actual places. Key ideas and content… We can describe places using geographical language. It is more effective to use the correct key terms and descriptive language. To differentiate… Pass the sheets round on a timer, with the challenge of either adding more key terms or improving existing ones. Stick the sheets on the wall around the room, give each student a different key term to look for. Students go round the room. Insist on certain terms being applied. To extend… Insist on a description of features which aren’t necessarily visible. Students find their own photos and analyse them. Peer assessment. There are some tricky terms in the key terms activity, use to stretch students. To assess… Discussion points. The work produced. Peer assessment opportunity.

River landforms - waterfall sequencing

(0)
Sequencing activity: River landforms - waterfalls This is suited to KS3 but does work with KS4 - you'll need to add more detail (processes of erosion etc.). There are four slides to help the teacher explain the processes involved and introduce the keywords. The activity sheet requires students to complete three activities. 1. Cut out and arrange the tiles. 2. Add the labels from the sheet. 3. Add the descriptions from the sheet. There is also an animated consolidation slide to allow teacher/students to check accuracy. For higher ability - ask the students to underline the key terms, add more key terms and write their own descriptions. Two version of the sheet are included; one in colour and one in outline black & white. Every review we've received for a premium resource has been 5/5* (As of February 20th 2017)

Geography - Living in squatter settlement - Activity sheets

(1)
Two activity sheets intended to be used as part of a lesson. The theme of the lesson should be along the lines of ‘Life in a squatter settlement’, and could be taught with KS3 or KS4 students. Resource 1: the effects on peoples lives The main aim is for students to appreciate how the conditions / characteristics of a squatter settlement affect people’s lives. The task is for students to complete the sheet in a few different ways. There are nine problems / effects associated with living in a squatter settlement. For each effect, they must list the associated problems, and for several, also draw the problem. Ask the students the question – how would this affect your life if you lived there? There will be some repetition. There are three blank cards as well, these are intended for higher ability students, or for the teacher to edit so as to include a problem which may be appropriate to the theme of their teaching. Higher ability students can cut the cards out afterwards and glue them in their exercise books – this is an opportunity to identify links between the problems. There are several, and the whole activity is very open ended. Students could also sort their ideas into social, political and economic – they could use three different colours and a key to show this. There are some answers on the next sheet, although there are many more. Resource 2: the informal economy of a squatter settlement The main aim is for students to appreciate how people can earn money within a squatter settlement. The focus should be on how the work is informal and doesn’t contribute to the tax base / official figures. This kind of work can be contained within a squatter settlement, but not necessarily so. This is an opportunity to draw a strong link to rural-urban migration; how the residents are often uneducated and unskilled, but wanting and needing to work. The task is simple, for each form of employment, the student must draw an appropriate illustration. Model for lower ability, ask higher ability to include speech bubbles, or some form of written communication. Use as an opportunity to clear up any misunderstanding about what each term means. All reviews for our paid resources have been 5/5* (as of March 19th 2017)
