Geography - Map skills - The Island - Assessment

Geography - Map skills - The Island - Assessment

Whole lesson / assessment - could be used to teach map skills or use as a stand alone assessment to use at the end of a map skills topic. The assessment requires students to read a list of instructions and complete a map of 'The Island'. Students can show and develop their skills with grid references, distance, direction and map symbols. The assessment element will show the teacher and student progress made, and also inform the student as to what they need to do to get to the next level. There is an extra activity which then allows students to show their understanding about human and physical features, this could also make a good link to a tourism topic and incorporates literacy. Teacher notes and a brief lesson plan included with extension and differentiation notes. This whole lesson is ready to go. All of our paid resources have received a 5/5* review as of 29th January 2017.

Geography - Geographical skills - Sketching (field and from photos)

Geography - Geographical skills - Sketching (field and from photos)

A range of practice activities to help students develop their sketching technique. Designed for the new AQA 1-9, but is relevant to other specifications and year groups. The lesson would be particularly useful to a GCSE group before they do their fieldwork, and will also be suitable for a KS3 class. There are also detailed 'key points' so students understand why they need to know how to sketch, and what technique makes it effective. On top of the field sketching there is a focus on application of key terms. The lesson has a range of visual resources, all relevant to the new 1-9 GCSE. A free wallchart is available to download at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/geography-geographical-skills-sketching-wall-display-11486949 The main aim is… To develop and practice field sketching / sketching from photographs technique. To effectively annotate and label sketches to show understanding. Key ideas and content… This is a practical lesson which would benefit from lots of student interaction and discussion. There are links to content, but it would work without – solely as a sketching lesson. To differentiate… Use the resources with the picture above a blank box for weaker groups. Focus on the same photos. Print the checklist. Display the photos on the board and discuss as a class. To extend… This lesson could be used several times in the same format. The teacher can add their own photos. Take the class on a local visit to practice the technique. Provide word banks for annotations. To assess… Peer assessment is woven into the main activity. Teacher should be able to see visual progress with the quality of sketching and level of annotations.
