KS3 Africa - The Big Fat Africa RECAP

(1)
A quiz for the topic of Africa. Ideal for Years 7 to 9. Previously used for around 20 minutes in a 1hr lesson. Completely FREE. This quiz recaps the learning from the first five lessons of the series: 1. Where is Africa? 2. Perceptions of Africa. 3. The Colonisation of Africa. 4. Population densities of Africa. 5. Physical feature of Africa. The final couple of questions are about biomes. If you have studied biomes then you can keep the questions in, if not then remove them and make the quiz out of 20/21 rather than 25. Use however you wish and enjoy!
KS3 Settlements - Assessment

KS3 Settlements - Assessment

(2)
An end of term assessment for the topic of Settlements. Ideal for Years 7 to 9. Previously taught by myself in a 1hr lesson where pupils have had time to revise beforehand and sat the assessment in around 30-40 minutes. Based on the KS3 Settlement resources on my page.
KS3 Tourism - Improving Blackpool
markalanwilliams10markalanwilliams10

KS3 Tourism - Improving Blackpool

(0)
A lesson for the topic of Tourism. Ideal for years 7 to 9. Previously taught in a 1hr lesson. Completely FREE. This lesson leads on from the first few lessons in the bundle and is predominantly an extended writing task where pupils consider the butler life cycle model, positives, negatives and strategies to improve Blackpool (previous lessons learning for much of the information). Could potentially be adapted to any lessons about Blackpool that have otherwise been taught outside the bundle. Not many slides but I hope it helps, enjoy!

KS3 Settlements - Plan your own housing estate

(1)
A lesson for the topic of Settlements. Ideal for Years 7 to 9. Previously taught by myself in a 1hr lesson. This lesson is ideal for the end of a scheme of work for Settlements if you have a lesson spare. Lesson includes a hot seat activity based on my previous lessons for the scheme of work of Settlements which KS3 pupils tend to enjoy.
KS3 Natural Hazards - Make your own Earthquake-proof building

KS3 Natural Hazards - Make your own Earthquake-proof building

(1)
A practical and fun lesson for the topic of Natural Hazards, perfect for end of term! Ideal for Years 7 to 9. Previously taught by myself in a 1hr lesson. This is a 4 slide presentation to ease the flow of the practical. Be prepared for mess, use A3 sheets on tables to avoid the marshmallows sticking to them. The materials needed for this lesson are listed on the presentation (the cover image for this package). This lesson is always a winner with KS3 students. Groups of 4 work best, give time to plan before the practical exercise.
KS3 Settlements - Cheshire Oaks

KS3 Settlements - Cheshire Oaks

(1)
A lesson to the topic of Settlements. This lesson explores Cheshire Oaks in the North-West of England as an example of an out-of-town shopping centre. Cheshire Oaks is the largest designer outlet in the UK. Ideal for Years 7 to 9. Previously taught by myself across a double lesson (1hr each). Getting the pupils to map out their designs in 3D on an A3 piece of paper in groups is an excellent idea that I've tried and tested.
KS3 Development - Industrial development and investment
markalanwilliams10markalanwilliams10

KS3 Development - Industrial development and investment

(0)
A lesson for the topic of Development. Ideal for years 7 to 9. Previously taught in a 1hr lesson. The lesson starter is a crossword based on previous lessons in the bundle, followed by a recap 'true or false' exercise. The main activity is based on Kenco's 'Coffee vs Gangs' campaign. The pupils must create an information poster explaining why Honduras should push to make goods which are not primary products. Help sheet is provided, but further research is essential (finish for homework exercise).
KS3 Development - Factors influencing development
markalanwilliams10markalanwilliams10

KS3 Development - Factors influencing development

(0)
A lesson for the topic of Development. Ideal for years 7 to 9. Previously taught in a 1hr lesson. This lesson leads the pupils to explore a variety of factors that affect development including conflict, corruption, natural hazards and food prices to name a few; the pupils will use information sheets to answer a set of questions about the factors. The final activity uses Haiti as an example of how a natural hazard can affect development in a domino effect, where pupils must complete the worksheet with the sentences written in the correct areas of the columns. Includes a homework related to the lessons learning.
KS3 Tourism - Why do tourists go to Blackpool?
markalanwilliams10markalanwilliams10

KS3 Tourism - Why do tourists go to Blackpool?

(0)
A lesson for the topic of Tourism. Ideal for years 7 to 9. Previously taught in a 1hr lesson. In this lesson, the pupils will begin by stating what they believe is 'characteristic' of a UK coastal resort, before embarking on a game of 'Blackpool or not?', where they write whether they believe the image on the board was taken in Blackpool or not. From this, the pupils' main activities will be based around the Butler life cycle model. A good lesson as many KS3 pupils are too young to be aware that UK coastal resorts were once immensely popular holiday destinations.
KS3 Tourism - Negatives factors affecting tourism
markalanwilliams10markalanwilliams10

KS3 Tourism - Negatives factors affecting tourism

(0)
A lesson for the topic of tourism. Ideal for years 7 to 9. Previously taught in a 1hr lesson. In this lesson, pupils will be exploring how negatives factors can impact upon tourism. The pupils will be put into the shoes of a hotel owner early in the lesson and will write how they feel that their business will be affected as a result of the two scenarios they are put in (London Olympic Games 2012 and then the 7/7 bombings). Later in the lesson, the pupils will attempt to answer a 8+4 mark question using the example they have been given. This question could be the first time a KS3 class have attempted an 'Explain' question so a TOP TIP for structure is included on the question slide. Perhaps a teacher led example could help classes struggling with the question if that appears to be the case.
KS3 Tourism - Tourism in an LIC: Kenya
markalanwilliams10markalanwilliams10

KS3 Tourism - Tourism in an LIC: Kenya

(1)
A lesson for the topic of Tourism. Ideal for years 7 to 9. Previously taught in a 1hr lesson. In this lesson, the pupils will be exploring Kenya as an example of LIC tourism. The main bulk of the lesson see's the class split into two halves and being given 6 different 'local opinions' about how tourism affects Kenya. The two sides are not to know how their quotes vary (one side is completely positive, the other side is completely negative). At the end of the lesson, the pupils will explain why they think tourism is good or bad for Kenya, before the two sides discover why they appear to disagree. Extra time at the end to debate their opinions would be an excellent idea!
KS3 Development - Uneven Development
markalanwilliams10markalanwilliams10

KS3 Development - Uneven Development

(0)
A lesson for the topic of Development. Ideal for years 7 to 9. Previously taught in a 1hr lesson. Not the best lesson I've ever made and does not reflect the other development lessons I have made, but its yours for FREE regardless. The 'Birkenhead or not?' game can be adapted for any location and gets the pupils engaged. Best part of the lesson is the 'only connect' game that is based on my previous lessons, adapt that game for literally anything I guarantee it will get the pupils engaged! Hope you enjoy!

markalanwilliams10markalanwilliams10

Top Trumps - OCEANIA (Geography Game)

(2)
A set of 14 Top Trumps cards of the independent countries in Oceania. Completely FREE and effectively a sample of what is within the other Top Trump sets. Ideal for KS3 Geography. The numbers on the cards are for each country's population (2017), population density, area (km squared), net migration and life expectancy.
