Protecting Mappleton on the North East Holderness Coast & resulting conflict

(0)
This resource starts by considering what conflict is and how the coast is used. It introduces 'how we use the coast' before introducing the idea of interest groups; who they are and what their priorities are. It moves onto the sea defences at Mappleton and how this has increased erosion to the south. Students to complete a 'conflict matrix' with justifications for their reasons.

Places emphasis on SPAG with bonus points for pupils who remember the basics.
Food miles - design a menu and discover how many miles it travels

Food miles - design a menu and discover how many miles it travels

(0)
This lesson is designed to encourage students to think about where our food comes from and how far it has travelled. Students need food cards which have a photo of food on one side and what it is/where it comes from on the reverse (photocopy food cards sheets back to back and cut up in envelopes) so that they can design their own menu. There is a wide variety of foods with enough choices for all diets and any cards can be omitted for religious reasons. They then map where the food came from and measure the distance travelled to work out the total number of food miles. Results are often very surprising! Resources: Food cards which have a photo of food on one side and what it is/where it comes from on the reverse (photocopy food cards sheets back to back and cut up in envelopes) Royalty free map Presentation for lesson with extension tasks Table to record food miles

Language and Vocabulary - Gothic Fiction labels

(0)
A series of labels that can be used to encourage students to find better vocabulary. Each resource is a sheet of the same word that can be printed on labels and stuck in books for students to find alternative vocabulary either with a thesaurus or by themselves. Always a successful starter activity. Made for Avery A4 & A5 L7161

Development Dynamics - keywords crosswords Edexcel Geography B (9-1)

(0)
A series of crosswords and word searches written using key words from the Development Dynamics Topic. Two different crosswords - the first has general key terms (GDP, GNI, HDI etc) the second has more specific vocabulary (top-down, bottom-up, TNC, FDI). Wordsearches have clues to the single words hidden inside (developed, emerging, political, social etc) rather than just the answers to get pupils thinkings. Answers to all puzzles are included. I suggest these can be used as starters, homework or revision.
Grammar & vocabulary - Improving setting and speech

Grammar & vocabulary - Improving setting and speech

(0)
A lesson on 'show, don't tell' to up level speech and vocabulary, thereby making work more interesting to the reader. Uses the concept of paint charts to encourage students to make more interesting word choices for said as the the colours get darker. This is then applied to a series of settings where students need to show what is happening rather than just tell. Includes models of what students can aim for. Resources: Paint charts with alternatives for said (asked, whispered, cried, shouted, begged, laughed) Presentation with modelled examples at different levels.

Language and vocabulary building - Alien busting

(0)
A series of sheets that can be printed on labels. Each sheet has one word (nice, sad, old etc) with an alien. The students (either with a thesaurus or from their own vocabulary) has to find alternatives to 'bust' the alien. How many alternative words they have to find is up to you, I usually go for 5. Always a successful starter activity. Made for Avery A4 & A5 sizes, L7161.
