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 climate and biomes. The unit of six lessons aims to help pupils to understand the difference between climate zones and biomes. Pupils will extend their knowledge by mapping the climate zones and biomes, and using graphs, predictions and scientific experiments to understand and describe how distance from the equator affects climate around the world. Pupils will also learn about the plants, animals and climate within five of the world biomes, investigate their connections and interdependences, and begin to explore the effects of climate change on the world’s climate zones and biomes.

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.
