Description / Objective / Linked materials
The Mountains presentation provides a broad introduction with very useful diagrams and photographs. I have used this an introduction for a unit on erosion, broader physical processes or human activity into mountain regions including the Cairngorms. Use with the Volcanoes, The Cascades and UK physical Differentiated Homeworks. Assess learning and understanding using the Revise and Test presentations included.
