Pupils cut out the revision cards and fold them down the middle dotted line so they have the questions on one side and the answers on the other. The cards include ecosystems, rainforests and hot deserts. The case studies I have used are Malaysia for rainforests and the Thar Desert but the cards are easily edited to reflect any different case studies.
Case study on opportunities for development in the Thar Desert. There is an A3 summary sheet to complete during the lesson featuring map work, statement sorting and a higher level explanation task as a plenary or homework depending on the length of your lesson.
Pupils cut out the revision cards and fold them in half down the middle so the questions are on one side and the answers are on the other. I have used Hurricane Matthew and the Somerset Levels floods as my case studies but the cards can be edited to reflect the case studies you have used.
This lesson starts with a tourism recap using a domino activity. Then pupils are taught about what ecotourism is and pupils then assess two real examples to determine how sustainable they think each one is. They then have to design their own eco tourist resort to demonstrate their understanding. The task is differentiated so that lower ability pupils can use a list of characteristics they can choose from. There is also a mark scheme for pupils to self or peer assess their designs.
Printable revision cards for pupils. They can cut them up and fold them in half so the questions are on one side and the answers on the other. I have used Chile and Nepal for the case study questions but these can be edited to suit what you have studied.
Introduction lesson to hot deserts. It covers what they are like, locations, climate, as well as plant and animal adaptations. Includes map and atlas skills, climate graph plotting and data calculations.
Power Point with activities and worksheet to go with it. In the notes it tells you the sigificance of the numbers on the first slide. You need to see it in slide show mode to reveal the last two clues separately.
Great class or homework activity for pupils to show their knowledge of weather and allow them to develop their creativity. It comes with a self or peer marking sheet that allows them to highlight what went well and what would be even better if. There is also room for an overall grade and a teacher comment.
Pupils show their knowledge of the layers of the earth by creating a design for a machine to dig to the centre of the earth and annotating it. Includes a self/peer/teacher assessment table which can be highlighted for quick marking.
A differentiated lesson for pupils to understand how plate movements lead to volcanic eruptions. There are differentiated resources to allow pupils to write their own explanation of how a volcano erupts at a destructive plate margin. This is follwed by pupils learning the structure of a volcano. Finally pupils learn the difference between shield and composite volcanoes and how their eruptions may differ.
