Designed for the 9-1 AQA Geography Exam. A complete lesson based on the Thar Desert as a case study for the Opportunities and Challenges section. The lesson contains a video link that covers the case study in detail. This is supported by a scaffolded exam question which includes an answer sheet. The lesson combines a memorable case study with a structured assessment activity.

They all remember the golden rat! An alternative/complementary lesson based on the Oxford textbook is available separately.

GCSE AQA 9-1 The Demographic Transition Model ( Carousel Activity).

GCSE AQA 9-1 The Demographic Transition Model ( Carousel Activity).

(0)
A fully resourced lesson that explores the DTM in an active way. Written specifically for the AQA GCSE 9-1 course and fully updated. The power-point covers the key definitions and includes video links. The main activity is a market place/carousel task in which the students move around the room collecting the information for each stage. The information sheets are in colour for high impact and would benefit from laminating to ensure they can be reused year after year. The syllabus refers to Nigeria but the pyramid is only just entering stage 3 so I have also included Brazil, as it shows the difference from stage 2 far more clearly. The information makes references to policies in Nigeria as it is used as a case study elsewhere in the course.

No other resources are required and worksheets of up to date pyramids for annotation are included. I have also included a past exam question. Aimed at GCSE, this would also be suitable for KS3 as the activities can differentiate by outcome.

AQA 9-1 GCSE Coastal Erosion Worksheet

AQA 9-1 GCSE Coastal Erosion Worksheet

(0)
A straightforward sheet that covers the three processes of coastal erosion specified by the AQA exam board. Useful for reinforcement or revision. Easily slots into existing lessons. Suitable for most GCSE courses or KS3. It has however been specifically written for AQA and therefore only includes the three types of erosion specifically asked for in the syllabus and thus reduces the workload for the student when compared to the textbook content. Updated 2018 - As requested I have added an answer sheet.
