Food Miles

Food Miles

(0)
Lesson 6 for KS3 unit of work on food. Students will learn the concept of ‘food miles’ through a video, discussion and a play your cards right activity. They will then use this knowledge, along with information from a differentiated handout (according to reading level) to create a booklet on food miles. This can take 1-2 lessons and can be set as a homework to complete if not completed in class.
Revision Technique: GCSE Coasts
sarahwoodheadsarahwoodhead

Revision Technique: GCSE Coasts

(1)
A lesson focussing on techniques for revision. Examples used are from the coasts GCSE topic. I have written it for the AQA 9-1 GCSE, however I would assume that most, if not all of the ideas are on most specs. The lesson looks at memorising key words, mnemonics, use of pictures to jog memory, ways to summarise and revise processes, practice questions and mind mapping. Slightly more than a lesson’s worth, but you can select what activites your students require. Please note that there is some overlap betweent this lesson and the ‘Revision Technique: GCSE Geography’ lesson.

End of Unit Assessment- The Challenge of Natural Hazards AQA 9-1

This is a 33 mark end of unit assessment on the topic of ‘The Challenge of Natural Hazards’. There are questions on Climate Change, UK Extreme Weather, Tropical Storms and Tectonic Hazards. The Paper 1 GCSE exam, ‘Living with the Physical Environment’ will test this topic in 33 marks, hence the length of the test.

Changing Economic World AQA 9-1 GCSE Revision

(0)
A revision lesson that includes a variety of different activities to help pupils revise different aspects of the ‘Changing Economic World’ unit for AQA GCSE Geography. The tasks include developing a pre-created mind map to help pupils make links between ideas and to define key words, a gaps fill, developing an answer to a 9 mark question, based on an example answer, a quiz quiz trade activity, a quiz and a silent debate. The idea of the quiz, quiz, trade is to improve students short term memory skills and to help them remember key facts. The silent debate draws together different concepts discussed during the topic and helps pupils to start to engage in critical debate based on evidence. All resources are on the powerpoint, aside from the quiz, quiz, trade, which is a separate word document. Please check out my other revision lessons and leave feedback if you like the lesson!

(0)
This is a 30 mark end of unit assessment on the topic of ‘Physical Landscapes in the UK’. There are questions on Coasts, Rivers and Glaciers. Pupils will only answer 2 of the 3 questions, so you can decide as a school to only print the necessary parts to save printing money if necassary. The Paper 1 GCSE exam, ‘Living with the Physical Environment’ will test this topic in 30 marks, hence the length of the test. I have also written a detailed mark scheme using a similar format to AQA, so this can be used in departments or with students to grade and analyse the assessments. This is saved in the same document as the test.
