The objectives of the Powerpoint, animation, video and various worksheets are to identify the three different types of rainfall (frontal, convectional and relief). To investigate and understand the mechanisms behind the different types of rainfall, and to identify and explain the link between areas of high altitude and relief rainfall.
Pupils will annotate a photo and draw a valley cross section. pupils will answer questions on river landforms and write a balanced extended answer to the potential development of landforlms (such as waterfalls) for the tourist industry. useful for an end of unit test.

A PowerPoint, newspaper article, card sort and data capture sheet (Facts, Causes, Effects and Responses) on The Chilean Earthquake of 2015. Learning Objective: to understand that Hazard resistant design and preparation procedures (& evacuation) are key factors in reducing the effects i.e deaths of high magnitude earthquakes. Students work towards answering the question: why did only 13 people die in an 8.7 magnitude earthquake? Higher level students can read the newspaper article and classify the statements in to facts, causes, effects, responses, or you could use the card sort.
A KS3 Assessment task with grade descriptors for pupils producing a report on the primary and secondary effects of an Earthquake of their choice either from an LEDC or MEDC.
AQA syllabus KS4 Tectonics Powerpoint on the landforms found at plate boundaries. Why fold mountains and ocean trenches form at destructive plate margins. The difference between composite volcanoes which are associated with destructive plate margins and shield volcanoes which are associated with constructive plate margins.
A worksheet about the 3 layers that make up the Earth (crust, mantle and core) (Year 7) Useful at the start of a topic on earthquakes and volcanoes and thinking about how the structure of the Earth and the mechanism of plate tectonics links to the global distribution of earthquakes and volcanoes.
There are a number of different types of plate boundaries. For each plate boundary you will need to be able to describe (i) the movement (ii) processes which occur and (iii) an example A differentiated set of worksheets for pupils to complete that achieves the above objective.
To research and consider the effects and responses of a recent significant earthquake in Japan 2011. To become increasingly aware of local events that have wider reaching global impacts and consequences. To appreciate the catastrophic nature of Tsunamis and their secondary impacts. The use of ICT in mapping hazards and student research in producing a case study.
An assembly providing an unbiased and brief overview of the Syrian Crisis, mainly looking at the differences between migrants, asylum seekers and refugees (who is the distinction important to?) the desired outcome is to promote discussion about a controversial topic and promote positivity in the face of human tragedy and conflict.

Three data capture sheets for research on Volcanoes, Avalanches and Earthquakes, useful for both KS3 and KS4; the worksheets can be used as a writing frame for video notes, Internet research or Library research.
An A3 Summary sheet following up on Urban Fieldwork to City Centre Useful for Geographical enquiry Questions such as How far does Peterborough meet the criteria for sustainability (Egan’s Wheel). Useful if you print in colour , as the sections are colour coded to match the Enquiry Process.
Pupils will be able to enquire and ask / research a series of questions, using a data capture sheet. Pupils will know what the definition of a desert is and name an example of at least one and know how desert plants are adapted to their environment. The resources are differentiated so that higher ability pupils can ask further / higher level questions and the structure of the enquiry sheet can suggest/prompt lower ability pupils for answers. the plenery is a fun idea and it works well with year 8 pupils... surprising how much they can recall.
As part of Fair trade Fortnight 21st February to 6th March 2022. These KS3 activities consider the coffee supply chain, general features of Fair trade before focusing on 6 Fair trade case studies / products from different countries the story of the farmers and local community impacts. Ultimately students decide: does Fair trade help improve peoples’ lives?
A Geography display that shows the different types of plate boundaries/margins. (destructive, constructive, collision and conservative) The aim is for pupils to draw 4 labelled diagrams on the blank template of the four types of plate margins. Pupils then cut out the cube template, fold and stick together and they can then be hung up as a display using string.... The more colourful the better! They are also good for revision aids! *Please be sure to instruct your pupils to draw their diagrams the correct way round so the diagrams can be read when the cube is glued together!
