Hello Soar Valley Geographers!
From this post you can access some geography activities you can complete during progress review day.
Y7 – You have been investigating some work recently on the land-use patterns in cities in the UK. To help you further investigate this topic. Visit this website http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/geography/settlement/urbanmod_ledcrev1.shtml
It shows the land-use pattern for a typical city in a less economically developed country. Investigate any terms on the model that you do not understand and make a note of the major similarities and differences between the two models.
Y8- You have recently been investigating some work into migration and displacement. In your next topic you will be investigating “Fantastic Places”
Visit this website http://www.yannarthusbertrand.org/v2/yab_us.htm and select three images that you think show a fantastic place. Copy each image and underneath each image explain what you feel makes that place special.
Y9 – You have been investigating the importance of the planet’s atmosphere. As part of this work you will have been generating some questions about the atmosphere that you want to know the answer to. Take this opportunity to find out the answer to two of the questions you would most like to investigate. Be set to share the answers ready for your next geography lesson.
Y10 – You have been investigating some work into the Arctic as an Extreme environment. Recently there was a BBC series on the Arctic. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00xjyfx
Watch the episode and answer the following,
How do different groups of people use the Arctic?
What do you think the future holds for the Arctic?
Also, if you need to finish off your annotated diagram of physical processes and landscape features in the Arctic, you can download the cards from here
Y11- You are in the process of completing your controlled assessment into the issues surrounding the impact of fairly traded products on people. You will be unable to complete this during progress review day. Instead you can spend some time, preparing for the next unit of work we are to complete entitled “Is the countryside in crisis?” A good place to give you some background information to this unit will be this Newsbeat article http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/10876900
