Each concept Cartoons cover a vital area of the maths or PSHE curriculum.

 

Concept Cartoons are simple images of a group of characters talking. All the characters opinions are valid but often characters have common misconceptions. A blank speech bubble for learners allows them to add their own opinions on the topic. Teaching Financial Skills Concept Cartoons can be used to start a group discussion or enquiry. Concept Cartoons can also be linked together to create a project teaching financial literacy.

'Sand dunes are an ideal environment for illustrating a range of ecological concepts and principles.'

 

The Concept Cartoons in this PDF resource explore many aspects of sand dune ecology. Many of the Concept Cartoons relate to science, but they also connect to other areas of the curriculum including geography.

 

Each Concept Cartoon can be used to stimulate a free standing discussion and enquiry. Alternatively, the Concept Cartoons can be linked together to form a larger topic or to create a project related to sand dunes and the coastal environment.

 

The process of dune formation is well understood and extensively documented. The sand dune environment is much less complex than many other environments and this makes it easier to see how ecological concepts apply.

 

This set of Concept Cartoons covers concepts such as:

  • sand dune formation

  • sand dune erosion and repair

  • indigenous flora and ecological succession

  • interdependence of species.
