The SuperSchemes series provides primary teachers with the means to develop geography units of work with confidence. Each book starts with:
  • advice and guidance on how to approach the topic
  • an explanation of the geography rooted in the unit
  • background information to get you started.
The whole suggested unit is laid out in the medium term plan, which is followed by detailed and resourced lesson plans for two lessons. Further ideas for developing the remaining four lessons in the unit complete the book and provide you with a springboard to take your geography teaching further.

This book will enable all primary teachers to teach good geography about the water cycle and water as a natural resource. The unit of six lessons aims to help pupils to understand the importance of water for life on the planet and learn about the variety of water supplies in the UK and around the world and the importance of clean drinking water. Pupils will understand how they use water at school and in their homes, and contrast this with usage patterns in other parts of the world. Pupils will begin understand who owns and manages water, and learn to develop their own ideas about whether the use of water around the world is just and fair.

Resources, including activity sheets, PowerPoint presentations and a copy of the medium term plan, are available to download using your password included with the book.
