Climate Change: The Human Causes of Climate Change

(0)
AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 1A: In this third lesson in the section we look at the possible human causes of climate change. We start with a simple retrieval practice grid based on previous learning. We then look at what the scientist think and how a consensus has grown about the impact of anthropogenic influences on the climate and we watch a clip that summarises this. We then create a diagram in our books and the students are guided step by step through the greenhouse effect, creating the diagram as they go. The pupils then watch video clips on the three main greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxides. The pupils make notes around their hexagons using the video clips to help. We finish by looking at the ‘enhanced greenhouse effect’ and a 9-mark gcse-style question with guidance on how to answer for the pupils. We finish the lesson with a GCSE-style question post-it plenary. In a nutshell lesson includes: Retrieval practice starter Greenhouse effect diagram. Hexagon task on the main greenhouse gases Video clips where appropriate GCSE-style question. Hope this saves you some valuable planning time. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/markthegeographer
