Short lesson about the UK's marine ecosystems. Example of an interrupted marine food chain, video link and collating activity on marine uses and misuses. Ends with a poster activity to pull together multiple marine ecosystem misuses
Would take 2-3 lessons to complete. Basic introduction to 2 types of data collection. Includes 2 separate in-class research projects which could be completed as fieldwork outside of the classroom if you are adventurous!
Introduction to the 4 ecosystems of the UK. Students get more familiar with the term "Temperate"; definition and mapping. They then have the opportunity to collate guided research into the 4 sub-ecosystems of the UK (internet required)
2 lessons. Guided teaching and learning exercises to help students to read and understand Gersmehl's nutrient cycle. The first lesson provides the "learning pit" experience, and the second lesson is a more thorough and guided walk through reading a Gersmehl Model component by component
Fun end-of-activity lesson. Also great as end of term extra. The resource makes an A3 mat and students are guided to design their own 5 ingredient smoothie and then calculate food miles. Can be done simply using the food labels on the mat or using I.T. to research the origin of their own ingredients.
A full lesson to introduce students to the components of an investigation; purpose, hypotheses, methods, data, analysis, conclusion and evaluation. Based upon an in-class quantitative research piece (you could add more choices to this depending on age of students and how adventurous you want to be! e.g. pedestrian or traffic counts)
2-3 lessons. Guided instruction sheet outlines specific requirements of the trip; family profile, certain number of stops and activities to suit all, presented as either A3 annotated road map or as a Ppt (or other) presentation. Nice relaxed end to a unit on tourism or urbanisation. Students enjoy the freedom of designing their own trip to a country they are likely to visit!
