  • 1. Intro Quiz - Silently! 1. Which course features a ‘V-shaped valley’? 2. What is ‘bedload’? 3. Does ‘lateral’ erosion affect the sides or bottom of a river channel? 4. Which is flatter; upper or lower course? 5. Where would you find a river cliff; waterfall, meander or delta? 6. Where does the majority of precipitation fall; upper, middle or lower course? 7. Name the warmest course of the river. 8. Does water flow fastest round the outside or the inside of a meander? 9. Which course of the river has the biggest size of sediment? 10. Where does the river have most ‘potential energy’?
  • 2. Intro Quiz - Silently! 1. Upper course 2. Large sediment rolling or bouncing along river bed 3. Side 4. Lower 5. Meander 6. Upper course 7. Lower course 8. Outside 9. Upper course 10. Upper course
  • 3. Flipped Lesson Aim to work at your own pace on knowledge and skills that are focussed to your current level of understanding 3 main groups working on different tasks, possible to move between groups if demonstrate special skills (I’m the judge) Groups linked to quiz results and homework completion
  • 4. Groupins Green - I get the work, I’m ready to push on to new and tougher content Amber - I’m not totally sure about the content and want to spent time on revising some knowledge and skills Red - I’m unsure of the content or didn’t complete the homework. I need more time to get this right
  • 5. Green Using page 17 in People, Places and Themes textbook explain how rivers transport sediment in different ways, Make notes about erosion, transportation and deposition from pages 8-9 in OCR B textbook, Use the Hjulstrom curve to explain how the river velocity affects the processes occurring. Exam question; Explain how the shape of a river valley changes as it moves downstream. Use diagrams to support your answer. [6 marks]
  • 6. Hjulstrom Curve Graph
  • 7. Delta formation
  • 8. Amber Using OCR B textbook make notes on valley formation, Using the meander diagram; shade areas of erosion and deposition. Explain how the meander migrates downstream. Use page 12-13 to help you. Complete the meander and waterfall stage diagrams to show how both features are formed. Use at least 3 stages and annotate.
  • 9. Later Early Early Later
  • 10. Red Watch Prep/Homework videos and make notes about the changing landscapes and the processes that affect the different landforms. Use your book and diagrams to help, Label the River Valleys worksheet with the features, landforms and explain how the processes change. Make annotated diagrams to show how meanders (p12), waterfalls and gorges (p10-11) are created. Each would be worth 4 marks.
  • 11. Finally, Label and add notes to your River Profile sheet - A3 graph, What happens where? How do processes, velocity, land use and features change? What is the shape of the valley? Hjulstrom curve? Tough one - what happens in each section?
