Asia KS3 Scheme of Work

(0)
This is a complete KS3 scheme of work of 13 lessons focusing upon the continent of Asia. The scheme of work includes the following: Asia is a wealthy continent. How far do you agree?  Locating Asia – map work (pupils need to learn the names and location of the continents as well as the names and location of countries within Asia)  Contrasting images of Asia to be given to pupils to instigate a discussion about the wealth of the continent.  Pupils answer the key question using the photographs and discussion as evidence.  GDP/GNI map of Asia and any commonly used measure of development. Case Study: Japan  Location of Japan and the four major islands- map work  Japanese climate and physical features  Introduction- what is Japan like and how has it changed?  Japanese ecosystems- concentrate on one of: coniferous or deciduous woodland + flora and fauna adaptations.  Japanese industry- imports and exports (pie chart/bar chart must be used)  Population structure of Japan- ageing population and population pyramids Should tourism in Asia be encouraged? Case Study: Thailand  Introduce tourism in an Asian country (Thailand)  Look at the changing number of tourists visiting the country (graph interpretation) – are there reasons that explain the fluctuating number? e.g. Asian tsunami 2004  Pupils need to investigate the pros and cons of tourism and then be able to justify their decision as to whether they think tourism should be encouraged or not? What are the characteristics of tropical rainforests?  Describe the distribution of tropical rainforests around the world  Understand the that the rainforests grow in layers (shrub layer, under canopy, canopy and emergent) and the reasons for this  Pupils need to be aware that animals and plants have adapted to life in the rainforest and have different characteristics depending on the layer they live in. Do we need to protect tropical rainforests?  Pupils need to understand the importance of tropical rainforests to both humans and the environment  The causes of the destruction of the rainforests needs to be investigated both the human and natural causes  Pupils need to be able to link together the causes of the destruction and the consequences this has.
