Sharing Mainly Geography Resources for KS3-KS5. Focused mainly on the AQA Schemes of Work.
Revision Technique: GCSE Coasts
sarahwoodhead

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.

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!

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

sarahwoodhead

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.
