I have just come to the end of the coast topic with my Y11 class and I needed some sort of a quick revision/exam practice lesson for them. It was the same day that we tweeted the photo of the stack at Flamborough Head, which got me thinking… Could you base a lesson on one picture?
Each pupil gets a black and white copy of the picture, with a colour copy on the board.
Task 1 – Label two features on the photo. (Self-assessment)
Note: Make sure that the pupils label these features with an arrow, drawn with a ruler and ensure that the arrow head is touching the feature they are labelling.
Task 2 – Produce an annotated sketch diagram of the image. (Peer-assessment)
Note: The sketch must have some representation of the image they are copying and annotations must be detailed.
Task 3 – Draw an annotated diagram to explain the formation of a stack. (Self-assessment from a mark scheme)
Note: The sequence in the explanation of the formation must be complete and in the correct order and the diagram must show the full sequence.
Task 4 – Explain the formation of a stack. (Teacher marked)
Note: The sequence in the explanation of the formation must be complete and in the correct order.
To finish I asked the pupils, ‘what other questions could come as a consequence of this single image?’
Basketball questioning and answering going around the room including questions such as:
‘What processes of erosion caused the formation of a stack?’
‘What other features may be present on this coastline?’
‘What sort of rock is this stack formed from?’
