Two complete lessons on the impacts of climate change across the world. Fits with AQA GCSE Paper 1 Section A: The challenge of natural hazards (Climate Change) I have used with KS3 and KS4 The first lesson covers rising temperatures, warming oceans, sea level rise, increase in frequency and intensity of storms, ocean acidification and desertification. The second lesson includes spread of disease, changes in farming, drought, hosepipe bans, sea level rise, spread of malaria and changes for scottish ski resorts. It also has individual case studies from certain countries including Nepal and Kenya. Includes differentiated acitivities.
This lesson introduces the opportunities and challenges of the Dharavi slum settlement in Mumbai. It is within the topic of urbanisation. The tasks include sketching and annotating the slum area using a couple of pictures as prompts. It builds towards answering a 6 mark question at the end ‘Compare the opportunities and challenges faced by rural-urban migrants in Mumbai (6)’. This final question is differentiated with a fill in the blanks, scentence starters, and glossary version of the activity. Activities: Starter based on an image Discussion of images Discussion of social, economic, environmental challenges and opportunities Sketching Annotation of the sketch Answering a 6 mark GCSE style Question
This is a revision sheet for the topic of population. I use this with KS3 as a revision sheet at the end of the topic, or I give it to them at the beginning so they can see what we will be covering. The topics on the sheet include: Causes of population growth Birth rates Death rates Sparse and dense populations Life expectancy Urban areas and rural areas Measures of development Impacts of population growth
This is a revision sheet which covers the key learning points for climate change. I use this with KS3. It can be used to help with exam revision or at the beginning of the module so they can stick it in their books and refer to it. Topics included: Greenhouse gas effect Natural and human causes Evidence for climate change Impacts of climate change Mitigation and adaptation strategies
This is a colourful and fun resource that could be used as a revision sheet, or as basic information summarised for students to refer back to throughout a teaching unit on coasts. The information is really condensed so that it includes many aspects of coasts on one A4 sheet of paper. It includes definitions, wave types, erosion types, weathering, erosional and depositional landforms as well as notes on beach management and long-shore drift. I use this with my KS3 clasess, and occasionally with KS4 to provide basic and condensed revision material for them to work from. If you were to use it with KS4 it would work with the AQA Unit 1 Coasts topic.
This resource has worked well with KS3 and KS4. It covers the coastal erosion at the Holderness coastline. it covers the rate of erosion, the need for protection, and the advantages and disadvantages of management. The activities include: Drawing a sketch of the erosion and labelling it (starter) Describing the location of Holderness in detail Watching a video of erosion at Holderness Categorising the advantages and disadvantages of management at Holderness Writing a long structured answer where they evaluate the impact of managment at holderness. The tasks are differentiated, and for the final writing task there is a helpful bookmark structure sheet.
This is a fun and colourful knowledge organsier that can be used for revision or to support teaching. It covers the critical content for a unit on climate change, particularly good for KS3 although I have used to support teaching in KS4 lessons occasionally when basic knowlegde needs revisiting. It would also work well with retrieval practice activities! The information is concise and summarised, and covers the following topics: Greenhouse gas effect Evidence to show climate change (tree-rings etc.) Impacts of climate change Mitigation and adaptation of climate change Brief mention of impacts in Bangladesh (LIC) and the UK (HIC) I hope you enjoy.
This is a whole lesson with an accompanying activity sheet. It covers the main evidence for climate change (ice cores, tree rings, historical reords). There is a differentiated activity on slide 10 and 11 with different ways to answer a 6 mark GCSE style question. It encourages students to think about the advantages and disadvantages of each type of evidence. It links into the AQA Paper 1 specification for AQA GCSE Geography.
This lesson introduces megacities to the students. They then categorise some of the features of Shanghai into economic, social and environmental. The students then discuss the challengs of the city and rank them in order. This lesson works well with Year 8 or any KS3 class.
For use with KS3 or KS4. Fits with AQA Geography Paper 1 Section A (the challenge of natural hazards) Climate Change. This lesson covers the natural causes of climate change including volcanism, solar variation and orbital changes. It includes a complete lesson on a powerpoint , information flash cards on the natural causes, and an orbital cycles note taking sheet. There is a GCSE style question 6. On slide 7 there are scentance starters, a fill in the blanks and key words to be used to differentiate the 6 mark question.
This resource covers the advantages and disadvantages of fossil fuels, as well as renewable sources of energy. It fits with the AQA Geography Paper 1 Section A: The challenge of natural hazards (climate change). I have used with KS3 and KS4. It includes a categorising task, a table task and a plenary task (all of which could be copied to a word document and printed if needed.
This is a resource for the AQA GCSE Geography course. It is for Paper 2 Section B: The changing economic world. (Economic Futures of the UK). The resource includes: a 45 mark test based on GCSE style questions a walking talking mock powerpoint presentation to talk through the answers for the attached test (with suggested answers on the left) a revision poster to be used before the test For use with year 10 or 11 (or year 9 if this fits with a three year GCSE plan)
This lesson covers the mitigation strategies for climate change. It fits with the AQA Paper 1 Climate Change unit. I have used this with KS3 and KS4. It focuses on CCS, planting trees, renewable energy sources and international agreements. There are some youtube links and a table to complete.
This lesson focuses on the causes of uneven development: physical, economic and historical. This is the structure: Starter: a video to get the students thinking Activity 1: Mind map where the students can show what they already know Activity 2: Filling in a table using the flash cards, on the main reasons for inequality Activity 3: Short explanation and flow diagram about the multiplier effect Main task: students annotate satirical cartoons to explain the meaning behind them, using what they have learned Plenary: Students discuss their interpretations
A set of knowledge organisers covering the content for AQA GCSE Geography 9-1 Unit 1. They have very condensed notes that can be used for revision or to support teaching. Topics covered include: Tectonic hazards Weather hazards Climate change Tropical rainforests Hot deserts Coastal landscapes River landscapes
Series of 9 complete lessons following the specification for AQA GCSE Geography on ‘Case Study of an LIC or NEE’. The Case study is Nigeria. I have used these lessons with Year 10. All printables are included within the slides for easy printing! I hope you enjoy.
This lesson introduces push and pull factors, and then uses the example of Lagos to demonstrate it. I use this lesson with year 8 - but it could be used at any point in KS3.
A set of knowledge organisers covering the content for AQA GCSE Geography 9-1 Unit 2. They have very condensed notes that can be used for revision or to support teaching. Topics covered include: The urban world Urban change in the UK Sustainable urban development The development gap India: A Newly emerging economy The changing UK economy Resource management Energy management
This is a series of 8 fantastic lessons on the Changing Economic World unit of the AQA Geography GCSE. It focuses on the first part of this unit, all about development and the development gap. I have used this with Year 10, but it would work well for any KS4 class. I hope you enjoy!
