Boardworks are giving away free Geography resources suitable for teaching topics such as plate tectonics, the recent B.P. oil spill and an introduction to Fair Trade by written by someone familiar! The free resources can be downloaded from their Geography page.
I’ve updated a couple of bits on RG. Added my Holderness case study podcast to the coasts page, updated the starters and plenaries page, and added a couple of resources to the CCEA resource page on the exploitation of Coal in China. There are a number of great clips on YouTube such as the only below, I’ve removed them from the PowerPoint due to copyright.
Got a little excited yesterday and uploaded two sets of resources. Today’s resource is a timeline case study of sustainable transport management in the city of Freiburg, Germany. Case study for the CCEA spec.
A case study of sustainable waste management in the city of Nottingham. Classification task, supporting PowerPoint and case study summary.
I introduced Fair Trade this year with this mini-investigative task involving the tasting of chocolate, could be adapted to other foodstuffs.
A task asking students to produce a costing for a department meal using an online shopping website. The concept of availability and cost of organic alternatives is drawn out, as well as utilising a number of key skills.
Easier to upload these in a batch, all can be found on the R.G. food page.
To introduce the concept of organic farming I used this video clip…
We then decided which of the statements referred to organic farming using the ‘Which is organic sheet?’.
We then conducted a mini-investigation, entitled ‘Are Kirk Hallam families converts to organic products?’. This took around three lessons, also an opportunity to use ICT.
Finally to help add some explanation to our findings we completed the counterargument exercise.
Also good to use the classic Store Wars clip… this never fails to get a smile.
