The questions are based on the AQA A GCSE Geography topic of Population Change but are applicable to most Population topics especially the AQA Legacy AS spec.
Students are given a base map and a series of tasks relating to identifying areas of high, average and low population density as well as wealthy/poor areas. Students then have to use their knowledge to justify their choices. This is an activity allows students to link content to skills and apply their knowledge. Students will have learnt about factors affecting population structure and density prior to carrying out the task. Designed to meet the specification for 4B.1 of Diverse Places 'Population structure varies form place to place and over time' in the New 2016+ Edexcel A Level / AS Level (09GE0).

This is a complete lesson for Topic 4B (Diverse Places) for the new A Level / AS Level Edexcel 9GE0 for teaching from 2016. This lesson meets the learning objective: There can be considerable variation in population characteristics (gender and ethnicity), both in and between settlements. and covers using GIS and databases (Census) as skills. Students use GIS and databases to find out about two contrasting places, they then summarise their findings and suggest reasons for the variations. They then do a similar task for two contrasting areas in the same city. The lesson is fully resourced and the powerpoint provides step-by-step instructions plus a video to show how to get the census data. Students will require ICT access. While it is designed to meet the specification for 4B.1 and 4B.2 of Diverse Places 'Population structure varies form place to place and over time' in the New 2016+ Edexcel A Level / AS Level (09GE0).

After struggling to find a flexible seating plan that did what I needed it to do I created this. You can use 9-1 grades for the New GCSE. Simply copy and paste the 'seat' in the top-left hand corner onto the spreadsheet to create the layout of your classroom. On the data input sheet copy or type your data - it is currently set up to show name, target, current grade, PP, SEN, HP (health plan), and above, on or below target. All but target, current grade and AOB can be changed to show any other data without messing up the formatting. If you unhide a row on the seating plan you can also type text based information in the info section for example groups, access arrangements etc. On the seating plan just change the top left number on each seat to match that student on the data sheet e.g. 1 will look up student 1, 2 will look up student 2. The information will be shown on the seating plan with colour coding for on, above, below target, SEN and PP. It all uses very simple Excel formulas so easy to change to meet your needs.
Worksheet on drawing line and bar graphs using examples. Students are given data, have to choose the right type of graph (e.g. compound, comparative etc.), draw the graph, describe the data and justify the use of their chosen graph.

Could also be used with high ability KS3 classes and in other subjects. Perfect either as an activity during first teaching or as a revision task. Most classes take around 45 mins to do either section (bar or line). Included are a .pdf of the task Please do not remove my name from these resources. I have worked hard in my own time to produce them.
