Throughout the rivers unit I have included a focus on the importance of constant revision. This is the activity to be completed on the first week. Students will take a multiple intelligences test to see which way they learn best. From there they will look at a website that recommends different revision methods based on their learning style.
Very useful if this unit is completed before a mock exam.
This is the second week of revision homework. Students are asked to create flash cards for the key terms we have learned throughout the rivers unit. This is a method of studying that most students forget to take advantage of and they can keep the flash cards for their mock exam revision.
This bundle contains all lessons involving learning about the processes and features that occur in river landscapes in the UK. It ends with a summary of the river long profile and cross profiles and each lesson contains example exam questions to apply learning to an exam-style answer.
This is a revision lesson to summarize all students have learned about the geography of rural areas in a developed country. They will apply their knowledge to exam-style questions suitable for the National 5 geography exam.
This lesson for National 5 in the Scottish National Curriculum covers rural landscapes in a developed country. The example is the great plains of the United States. Students will look at the location of the great plains, the land use of this area and the impact of large scale commercial farming.
This lesson will have students examining and discussing the advantages and disadvantages to genetically modified crops (GMOs), and organic farming and it's application to the rural development of the great plains in the USA.
This is the fifth lesson in a series on rivers for the new AQA GCSE Specification. This lesson covers creating and understanding the long and cross profiles of rivers. Now that students know about the processes and features in each of the three river courses, this is a great lesson to summarize all of that learning and incorporate numeracy into lessons.
This is the fourth lesson in a series on rivers for the new AQA GCSE specification. This lesson covers the processes and features that occurs in the lower course of a river. This includes processes of deposition and the creation of estuaries, floodplains and levees.
This is the third lesson in a series on Rivers for the new AQA GCSE Geography specification. This lesson covers the processes and features formed in the middle course of a river including transportation, meanders and oxbow lakes.
This is a powerpoint and collection of revision mind maps for each of the units covered in the new AQA GCSE Living in the physical environment spec.
The revision mind maps cover:
Each mind map is divided into topics covered in the spec and has a practice exam question on the back for each topic.
These are excellent resources to use if preparing for a mock exam.
This is the second lesson in a series on river landscapes in the UK for the new AQA GCSE geography specification. This lesson goes over the processes and features that occur in the upper course of a river. If this unit is taught after coasts then this reviews their knowledge of erosional processes. This lesson looks at how erosion plays a role in the forming of truncated spurs, waterfalls and gorges and includes differentiated activities.
This is the first lesson in a series on river landscapes in the UK as part of the new AQA GCSE specification. This lesson introduces students to river basins and the long profile of a river by creating a pop up river basin for their books. This lesson also includes a local case study to consolidate their knowledge of river basins and their features. This can be easily adapted for schools to create their own local case study. This lesson also features differentiated activities and worksheets.
This is an exam-style assessment for the Coasts unit as part of the new AQA GCSE geography specification. This assessment covers information on weathering and mass movement, types of waves, coastal processes and coastal features.
This is a lesson designed to review what students have done in their coasts unit up until depositional features. This lessons works very well when you put a time limit on how long they have to work on each section and you can follow up each section with a Q&A session to check for understanding.
This is the preparation and the assessment for a case study on the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Students will be creating a brochure that informs people on what is happening in the Masai Mara- where it is located, the species that live in it, what problems tourism is having, how people can be a good tourist, and how other national parks can learn from the Masai Mara. Along with the assessment instructions there are resources for creating the brochure for both high and low abilities.
