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

(0)
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.

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.

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.

Geography - Skills - Describing Places
AcornTeachingResources

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.

Geography - Settlement Shapes (Whole lesson)

(1)
Geography - Settlement Shapes (Whole lesson) A whole lesson with a range of differentiated activities aimed at teaching students the features of, and differences between; linear, nucleated and dispersed settlement shapes. Includes: snappy starter, animated explainers, key points, class discussion, differentiated activities, assessment opportunities, a homework task and lesson evaluation. All resources are included, along with a lesson plan and teacher notes. The main aim is… For students to learn the features of, and differences between linear, nucleated and dispersed settlement shapes. Key ideas and content… Nucleated, linear and dispersed are all settlement shapes. Settlements grow in different shapes for different reasons. Nucleated settlements will grow around a feature. Linear settlements will grow along a feature. To differentiate… There is differentiation in the lesson. Provide the essential words for the summary activity. Students could work on the photo analysis together. To extend… Use the superstar activities. Get the maps out / photocopy and cut out to pick out actual settlement shapes. To assess… The photo analysis and the summary activity allow progress to be demonstrated and assessed. The homework could also be assessed.

Geography - Design an Easter Egg (with a geographical theme)

(0)
End of term group activity to design an Easter egg with a geographical theme. Will work as one lesson (with only the design proposal sheet completed) or two lessons (with completed designs on the templates). Competitive element. The group worksheet also has a 'Things we now know' to show progress'. The teams have to work together to research and design an Easter egg with a geographical theme, this could be a place, landmark or something they've learned in lesson (more options given in lesson). All resources are included. There is a pin board style slide to leave on the screen. Laptops and atlases aren't essential, but will certainly help with the research (one per group). www.acornteachingresources.com All reviews for our paid products have been 5/5 (As of January 15th 2017).
Exam question technique sheet
AcornTeachingResources

Exam question technique sheet

(1)
The main aim is… This is an exam question answer planning tool. It was developed for lower ability students; to help them form an answer to a long exam question and to practise their exam technique. It is intended to help students see they do have the necessary understanding, but also answer the question correctly to achieve the higher marks. Key ideas and content… The students tackle an exam question in steps. The idea is the students have everything they need on the sheet in front of them, to help focus lower ability students and coach them in answering longer exam questions. Students can apply the same process to an actual exam. Students can develop their exam question technique (application of key terms, use of connectives, structure etc.) to access the higher marks. To differentiate… Work through the steps as a class, then allow the students to answer the actual question. If using a structure – give time for teach section (a minute per mark?). Before photocopying, provide subheadings to help students structure their answer. Several colour coded versions have been included to enable carousel activities / differentiated activities / group work etc. To extend… Higher ability students could write their own mark scheme for the question on the back. Attach SPaG marks. Use the sheet with the ‘structure’ box instead of the thought bubble. The students will have to draw the horizontal lines depending on the structure / number of paragraphs. Higher ability students could plan their answer on the lined graphic, and then write their actual answer on lined paper / on the back. To assess… Can be assessed by the teacher against the mark scheme. Provide students with a mark scheme and allow them to assess/see where the marks come from.
