This lesson is the first in the series for the new GCSE geography specification for the Challenges in the Human Environment Paper. This lesson covers what is urbanisation and looks at changes in population globally over time, reasons for urbanisation and trends in rates of urbanisation. This lesson also introduces the new key terms of HICs, NEEs, and LICs.
This is the second lesson in a series on urbanisation for the new AQA GCSE specification. This lesson covers why people move to megacities. As a precursor, you can watch Andrew Marr's Megacities Living in the City (easily found on youtube) and students can complete the megacities worksheet. Afterwards, the lesson covers push and pull factors and the distribution of megacities.
This is the seventh lesson in a series on urban issues and challenges as part of the new AQA GCSE geography specification. This lesson covers the management of favelas in Rio de Janeiro as part of the case study of a city in an NEE. Students will evaluate which management is most effective and practice answering 9 mark exam questions.
This is the sixth lesson in a series on urban issues and challenges as part of the new AQA GCSE specification. This lesson continues the case study of Rio de Janeiro, a city in an NEE. This lesson focuses on the environmental issues in Rio and what is being done to try and solve them.
This lesson is the final lesson in a series on urban issues and challenges for the new AQA GCSE specification. This lesson focuses on revision for the entire unit in preparation for an exam-style assessment.
This is an exam-style assessment to be used at the end of the Urban Issues and Challenges unit as part of the new AQA GCSE geography unit. Marks can be easily converted to the new 1-9 grades.
This is the fourth lesson in a series for the Urban Issues and challenges unit in the new AQA GCSE specification. This is the second lesson focusing on the Rio De Janeiro case study. This lesson looks at the social challenges being faced by Rio: education, healthcare, electricity, water and the solutions the city has put in place to solve them.
This is an introduction to the case study for this unit as part of the new AQA GCSE Specification. This lesson introduces Rio De Janeiro as a city within an NEE experiencing urban issues. Students will familiarize themselves with where Rio is, how Rio is structured and some of the issues happening in the city.
This is the fifth lesson in a series on urban issues and challenges as part of the new AQA GCSE geography specification. This lesson focuses on the economic issues in Rio de Janeiro and how these issues link to social issues like crime as well as how these issues are currently being solved.
This is a bundle of all of the lessons for the Urban Issues and Challenges unit as part of the new AQA GCSE Geography specification. This unit focuses on urbanisation, megacities, counterurbanisation, and a chosen case study of a city in a newly emerging economy (NEE): Rio. Within the case study, the location of Rio is examined as well as its importance nationally and internationally, and how it is structured. We then move on to looking at the social, economic, and environmental challenges and solutions and finally look at the management strategies used. This bundle also contains an exam-style assessment to use at the end of the unit.
This is the fifth lesson in a series on Coasts for the new AQA physical geography specification. This lesson covers depositional features and reviews the process of longshore drift.
This is the third lesson in a series on UK coasts. This lesson covers the different types of coastal processes- erosion, transport and deposition. Good differentiated tasks for when you need to get through this task quickly and effectively.
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 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 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: -Ecosystems -Tropical Rainforests -Cold Environments -Coasts 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 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.
