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.
GCSE AQA Paper 1 Revision: Physical

GCSE AQA Paper 1 Revision: Physical

(0)
This is a revision lesson I’ve created to revise the 3 topics: The Challenge of Natural Hazards, The Living World and Physical Landscapes of the UK. It is tailored towards the sub-topics that we have selected as a school, which are ‘Tropical Rainforests’ and ‘Hot Deserts’ in the Living World topic and ‘Coasts’ and ‘Rivers’ in the Physical Landscapes of the UK topic. The lesson is designed to be delivered in 1 hour, with a starter which recaps a little from each topic, and then 3 packs of tasks which are split up on different tables. Students will have 15 minutes to complete the activities in each pack, before a plenary to discuss how prepared they are for their exam. The packs contain a range of tasks including exam questions, marking exam questions, card sorts with key words and exploring photographs they have been given. All of the resources are hidden slides in the powerpoint. Please note, this lesson follows the same format at the ‘GCSE AQA Paper 2 Revision: Human’ lesson. The tasks are different, but you may be interested in purchasing this lesson if you find ‘GCSE AQA Paper 1 Revision: Physical’ works well.

Food on the Move

(0)
A lesson aimed at key stage 3 geographers, discussing where we get from from in the UK. Also looking at which countries import and export more produce and why. The lesson involves a think pair share, a task for students to work out the meaning of key terms in context and paragraph practise using a handout. There is also a plenary which involves peer assessment.
Population 8 Billion- World Population Growth KS3

Population 8 Billion- World Population Growth KS3

(0)
A lesson that uses a clip from a BBC news report about World Population Growth to explain how and when we reached 8 billion and how this is predicted to change in the future. Students will complete a line graph, read information together, label countries onto a map and answer questions based on the reading. This lesson was designed for a year 7 group, however it could easily be used with year 8 or year 9 depending on when population is taught in the key stage 3 curriculum. I have differentiated the powerpoint for a lower ability year 7 group with SEN students and have also made a copy of the reading that is dyslexia friendly.
Growth and Development of Shenzhen

Growth and Development of Shenzhen

(0)
A lesson designed to be used with year 8, although I have used the resources with sixth form before to help them understand economic development with a detailed case study! The lesson focuses on the city of Shenzhen in China and looks at rapid population and economic growth. Pupils will create a storyboard to show why the city has grown so rapidly. There is also a video interview with a farmer to show his perceptions of how the city has developed.
Changing Economic World AQA 9-1 GCSE Revision

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!

Revision Questions and Homework -Year 11 Exam AQA Practice A1

(0)
I’ve planned a revision timetable for year 11 which includes the topics we teach at GCSE (AQA Geography) broken down into manageable chunks. Each week, students have topics to revise, suggested ways to revise and an exam question to do the following lesson. There are 2 options for the exam question, 1 without annotations and another that has the questions annotated and scaffolded to help. There is also a detailed mark scheme, including example answers for the longer questions. Questions range from 1 mark to 9+3 SPaG. I’ll be adding more of these as I plan them so that our entire course is covered. Hopefully this will be easy to edit if you use different case studies, or sub-topics. This first set includes: The Changing Economic World Key terms (indicators of development etc.) Demographic Transition Model Causes of uneven development Consequences of uneven development Strategies to reduce the development gap Tourism in Jamaica- example The Challenge of Resource Management Food in the UK- imports, seasonal food, organic produce, carbon footprint, food miles, local produce, agribusiness Water in the UK- changing demand, water quality, pollution, matching supply and demand, surplus and deficit, water transfers Energy in the UK- changing energy mix, reliance on fossil fuels, move towards renewables, decreasing UK supplies of fossil fuels, economic and environmental issues associated with exploiting natural resources
How Developed is India?

How Developed is India?

(0)
This lesson is currently used towards the end of year 7, but would be equally useful for any KS3 group, or as an introduction at GCSE. Pupils will be asked at the start of the lesson to justify whether or not they think that India is developed. During the lesson, a card sort will help pupils to create a map showing the development of different regions of India. At the end of the lesson, pupils are asked to look back at their answer to the question of how developed India is and see explain whether or not they’ve changed their mind. There is a second bellwork included in the powerpoint incase you don’t get through it all in one lesson. This lesson follows the same format as my, ‘How Developed is China?’ lesson

End of Unit Assessment- Physical Landscapes in the UK AQA 9-1: Coasts, Rivers and Glaciers

End of Unit Assessment- Physical Landscapes in the UK AQA 9-1: Coasts, Rivers and Glaciers

(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.
GCSE AQA Paper 2 Revision: Human

GCSE AQA Paper 2 Revision: Human

(0)
This is a revision lesson I’ve created to revise the 3 topics: Urban Issues and Challenges, The Changing Economic World and The Challenge of Resource Management. It is tailored towards the sub-topic that we have selected as a school, which is ‘Water’, rather than Food, or Energy. The lesson is designed to be delivered in 1 hour, with a starter which recaps a little from each topic, and then 3 packs of tasks which are split up on different tables. Students will have 15 minutes to complete the activities in each pack, before a plenary to discuss how prepared they are for their exam. The packs contain a range of tasks including exam questions, marking exam questions, card sorts with key words and exploring photographs they have been given. All of the resources are hidden slides in the powerpoint.

Revision Technique: GCSE Geography
sarahwoodheadsarahwoodhead

Revision Technique: GCSE Geography

(0)
A lesson focussing on techniques for revision. Examples used are from the topics of: Resource Management, Rivers, Coasts and Tropical Storm Hazards, . 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 Rivers’ lesson.
