KS3 Geography

SUBJECT   Geography    YEAR 7











Introduction to GeographyYou will learn what it means to study Geography and why geography is important to us. Geography of SportYou will study how sport is linked with human and physical geography through the location of different sporting venues in the UK, focusing on the building of the Olympic stadium. You will also explore the relationship between football and exploitation on an international scale. PopulationThe purpose of this unit is to introduce human geography and a sense of place to the students.  Two different geographical topics have been incorporated into this unit – population and settlement.The outcome for the students is that they are made aware of the differences in how and where people live on a global scale.     Coasts To look at our coastal areas and the features we find at coasts. Pupils will look at how the features form and what we are doing to slow the process of coastal erosion. This topic will include aspects of weathering and erosion. Why are floods such a disaster?You will look at the causes and effects of floods. You will look at a number of case studies to help you understand the wide spread impacts of flooding. You will then look at the possible ways we can reduce the impacts of flooding through town management and planning. My Fact FileStudents will work independently to produce a fact file on a country if their choice. Students will ask each other questions and present their findings to the rest of the group.





You will also learn some of the key skills required to study geography at this level.MapsGraphs

Data collection techniques.


Planning and development.Decision Making and team work.


Graphs and models.Team work and decision making.Map and atlas reading. Management and planning skillsDecision making.Graphing Team work

The Geography of ConflictYou will identify the patterns of conflict around the world, and try to identify the reasons for conflicts in our world. You will study Darfur, and focus on the genocide in Rwanda, considering the effects conflicts have on development. Then using this knowledge try to identify possible reasons for conflicts over land and resources in the future. Sierra LeoneYou will look at what life is like in Sierra Leone and compare it to the UK. You will produce a project to compare and contrast the two places. You will learn about the way people live in Sierra Leone and the countries level of development. Tourist WorldYou will learn the reasons for the growth in tourism and the different types of holidays now available. You will also investigate resort development, focusing on a case study in the European Union. What skills do storm chasers need?The outcome of the topic is for students to produce an extended piece of work which answers the topic question.  Storm chasers must be able to understand different weather systems as well as be able to read weather instruments and climate graphs so all the key theory taught in this unit is relevant to the work of a storm chaser. WasteTo look at what we waste and how it can be reduced. Looking at examples locally and nationally to show how we deal with recycling and how we can improve. GlaciationTo look at the features and uses of glaciated area past and present.

Restless Earth You will study the key physical processes to enable you to explain where and how earthquakes and volcanoes occur. You will investigate case studies and look at methods of prediction and protection. You will look at a number of case studies top help you understand each process. A Moving World You will identify different types of migration and be able to give reasons and explanations for each, as well as understanding the effects of migration on a variety of scales. You will also focus on a particular region, identifying push and pull factors and study the positive and negative effects of migration.
