Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 8 & 9 - Energy Sources

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 8 & 9 - Energy Sources

Lessons 8 & 9 for The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security. Looking at Enquiry Question 2 - What are the consequences for people and the environment of our increasing demand for energy? Students rank which countries they think have the most oil and then try to pick out patterns of where fossil fuels are found. They then complete a quick task on how geology affects fossil fuel stocks. They then look at energy pathways and how they can be disrupted and vulnerable to conflict; they may information onto a world map. Then complete a 12 mark question which can be peer marked as a plenary. The second part (lesson 9) starts by looking at the concept of peak oil and why we need alternative energies. Students look at a case study of deep water oil and then make their own case study of tar sands using the textbook. Some extra tasks included for homework. Needs the Oxford Geography for Edexcel book with the snake on the front is needed for this. Hope it helps! For more resources, visit: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/TheGeographyShop

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 6 - Consumption & Mixes

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 6 - Consumption & Mixes

Lesson 5 for The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security Edexcel Geography A-Level. Moves on to look at Enquiry Question 2 - What are the consequences for people and the environment of our increasing demand for energy? Students consider what they use energy for, then go on to look at the consumption of different countries. Looks at energy security and how/why some places are more energy secure than others. Then looks at energy mixes and the factors that affect it. Students then work independently to compare the energy mixes of the UK and Norway; the Oxford Geography for Edexcel book with the snake on the front is needed for this. Hope it helps!

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - Superpowers - Lesson 2 - British Empire

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - Superpowers - Lesson 2 - British Empire

Lesson 2 for the Superpowers topic. Starts with students looking at propaganda images from the height of the empire; students consider what the attitudes of Britain were at the time. They then go on to look at definitions of bipolar, unipolar and multi-polar worlds. The guidance from the Edexcel website suggested constructing a timeline however there is far too much information online to reduce! I've used the video instead which is good - students can create their own version of the map showing how the empire expanded and why. For the last task I used the book (Hodder A Level Book 2 with the flags on the front) - students read through the information, make notes and answer questions on the board. Exam question included - not sure about the wording of this one but good for them to have a go at anyway. Hope it helps!

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 3 - Carbon Sequestration

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 3 - Carbon Sequestration

Lesson 3 for The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security Edexcel Geography A-Level. Lesson looks at how carbon is sequestered in the oceans and the role of phytoplankton. Have made an information sheet for this to try and make it as straight forward as possible for the students! I've found a lot of the information online to be very complicated. Then looks at maps to show the global and seasonal distribution of phytoplankton (images from NASA). Students then use the textbook to make a leaflet/poster/mind map on terrestrial carbon (needs the Oxford Geography for Edexcel book with the snake on the front). Hope it helps!

Lesson 4 for The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security Edexcel Geography A-Level. Three independent tasks for students to complete. Two of them needs the Oxford Geography for Edexcel book with the snake on the front. Final task looks at how they think the carbon cycle is being impacted by anthropogenic factors - they annotate this onto a carbon cycle diagram. Hope it helps!

Lesson 10 for The Water Cycle topic for the new Edecel Geography A-Level. Students look at future predictions of climate and how they will affect the hydrological cycle; also they will consider why this is hard to predict. Students then consider the synoptic link of Futures and look at the IPCC predictions (good to get some higher level thinking/language here). Homework to look at the impacts on a named location - example here is California but could be changed easily. Hope it helps!

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - Superpowers - Lesson 1 - What is a superpower?

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - Superpowers - Lesson 1 - What is a superpower?

Lesson 1 for the Superpowers topic. Starts with looking at definitions of what a superpower is and the different factors that create a superpower (economic, political etc). Then goes on to focus on skills analysis of creating a power index (I have used the Hodder A Level Book 2 for this but you won't need it for the lesson). Next the lesson looks at different ways countries exert power (hard vs. soft) and finishes with Mackinder's Heartland Theory. Homework is based on the Heartland Theory but you could adapt; I was considering something to do with key terms. Hope it helps!

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 1 - The Carbon Cycle

Edexcel A-Level (2016) - The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security - Lesson 1 - The Carbon Cycle

Lesson 1 for The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security Edexcel Geography A-Level. Lesson looks at the concept of the carbon system (inputs, outputs, stores etc) and how we measure carbon. Students then complete a diagram of the carbon cycle, but as a proportional flow diagram (I have used the Oxford A Level Geography book but it might be in other textbooks too). Then they answer some questions from the PowerPoint. Finally looks at fast carbon and slow carbon stores. Hope it helps!
