Countries: Flags lesson for KS2 / KS3 geography

Countries: Flags lesson for KS2 / KS3 geography

This is a lesson I did for year 6's during transition week to help develop atlas skills and knowledge of places. Pupils used the atlas to create a fact file on the country of their choice on the back of the balloon outline. They then drew the flag on the balloon. Once complete they cut them out and hung them on a 'washing line&' in alphabetical order. This required them to look at the factfile to find out the country represented by each flag.

Sustainability, Environment - Types of Pollution

Sustainability, Environment - Types of Pollution

Powerpoint and card sort on the different types of pollution. \n\nThis was designed for a Set 3 group with a wide range of abilities (right from 2a to 5c) and they loved the Simpson theme throughout the lesson. \n\nThe card sort was given to the pupils as just the images, types of pollution and the sources then as the higher ability completed it they were given the effects to sort. \n\nThe lower ability students were given very simple effect cards with two or three words on each but I'm unable to find that document to add to the resource

Behavior Cards

Behavior Cards

A selection of cards for positive and negative behaviour. \nI print the positive behaviours on green and the ones for negative behaviour on red. \nThe negative behaviour cards rather than tell the pupil what they are doing wrong give the instruction for the alternative action that is expected. \ne.g. If they are talking over the teacher, card says listen when others speak. \n\nIf a pupil recieves 3 red cards a sanction is issued. \nIf a pupil recieves 3 green cards a reward is issued.

Why is renewable energy important?

Why is renewable energy important?

This lesson works on encouraging pupils to think about what the world would be like if we ran out of fossil fuels. \n\nWhen I taught this most pupils thought about the problems that would arise from reduced fossil fuel availability but some started to discuss the positive options and future developments that might occur. Some of the ideas were inspiring.\n\nThe pupils clearly understood the issues surrounding fossil fuels and the need for renewable energy. They really enjoyed the creative side of this.
