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.
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.
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.
A task to assess pupils understanding of different biomes. They choose a climate type and then select 7 things they would need in order to survive in that climate. Pupils must demonstrate their understanding of the biome by explaining why each item would be important. The sheet includes a what went well and even better if marking grid so that the work can be self or peer assessed. It works really well as a consolidation homework.
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.
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.
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.
