Humans have a responsibility to understand the natural environment and treat it sustainably.
Lesson 1 – What is geography?
Lesson 3 – What is an Ecosystem?
Lesson 4 – Deserts – Characteristics and Locations
Lesson 5 – Deserts – Formation and Formations
Rain Shadow Desert Formation
Coastal Desert Formation
Lesson 6 – Deserts – Plant and Animal Adaptations
Lesson 7 – Deserts – The Spread of Arid Land: What is Desertification?
Activity 2: Create a Consequences Chart using this model….
Use the example in this document to create your own consequences chart for Desertification.
1. Copy the chart into your work book or make a version in pages – you will need probably more circles than shown here!
2. In the first large circle write DESERTIFICATION (the problem) – the next level of circles should say consequences of desertification.
3. The third level of circles show the consequences of the circles before (the consequence of the consequence!) and so on, like a chain effect.
See how many consequences you can think of!
Lesson 8 – Tropical Rainforests – Characteristics and Locations
What are the Characteristics of a Rainforest? Read and complete q. 1, 2, 3
Geography Alive – What is a Rainforest Ecosystem Like? Read and complete q. 1, 2, 3, 4
TASK: Use the diagram below to complete a geographic sketch (this means you sketch all the main parts but leave out smaller details) of the rainforest layers in your workbook. Then annotate the sketch with key information about each layers using the reading ‘What is a Rainforest Ecosystem Like?’
TASK: In your exercise books, create a Venn diagram to explore the similarities and differences between deserts and rain forests.
Have a look at this game and see if you can place the plants and animals in the correct part of the rainforest. Then read about each one to learn more about who lives in the rainforest. (click on the textbooks in the picture to play Jewels of the Earth)
