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!

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.

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.
