UK's Uplands, Lowlands and Rivers
clarky321

UK's Uplands, Lowlands and Rivers

(0)
Title: Where are the UK's uplands, lowlands and rivers? Aim: To identify the relief and landscapes of the UK. AQA GCSE > Living with the Physical Environment > Physical Landcapes in the UK > UK Physical Landscapes. (But could be easily adapted for KS3 or a decent cover lesson) Planned and Taught May 2017 This is that strange line of the spec which sits above Rivers and Coasts. We've decided to teach it before Rivers, but it would make just as much sense to teach it before you start Coasts. I've done my best to 'sex up' a part of the spec that has Gove written all over it. The lesson therefore starts with some 'ubergeography', which is designed to prompt class discussion, then your students can crack on with the map work. You'll need an Atlas. Thanks for looking. Please note. My lessons are planned and taught using smart notebook, but a powerpoint version is also included here.
Development Challenges in Alaska

Development Challenges in Alaska

(1)
Title: Why isn't everyone rushing to Alaska? Aim: To create a video outlining 4 challenges to development in Alaska. HOMEWORK INCLUDED - 9 Mark case study question with plan. (Same as previous lesson, but now it's time to set it). Worth knowing... This lesson has two parts. The first part is a game I designed which the kids love and you'll use over and over again. This alone can take a lesson. The second part requires them to make group videos outlining challenges to development. We have flip cams at my school, but the students could use their phones. Lego/playdough also helps. AQA GCSE>Living with the physical environment>The living world>Cold Environments First planned and taught: June 2017 My lessons are planned and taught using Smart Notebook, but a pdf is also included.

Title: Where's Nigeria and why should we care? Aim: To describe the loaction of Nigeria and account for its global and regional importance.

I've used Nigeria as a CASE STUDY of one NEE experiencing rapid economic growth. First planned and taught: September 2017 The remaining 7 lessons in this unit will be available for £3 each, or the whole unit will be available as a bundle for £6, once I've finished planning and teaching it. My lessons are planned and taught using smart notebook, but a PDF is also included for those that don't use SMART.

This is a bundle of 11 lessons and covers the "Cold Environments" option from the new AQA GCSE. Includes Homeworks and an end of unit assessment. Also included is a lesson on Sir John Franklin's mission to discover the Northwest Passage. It's not in the spec, but I've always wanted to plan and teach it.

The Case Study used for development opportunities and challenges is ALASKA. Please note: A couple of these lessons require the Arctic with Bruce Parry DVD. (£6-7 from Amazon). It's excellent.
