THE CASE OF THE SHRINKING LAKE OF AFRICA - LAKE CHAD

THE CASE OF THE SHRINKING LAKE OF AFRICA - LAKE CHAD

This unit is basically about an inland water system (Lake and connected River catchments and inflows). However, it crosses into other study areas such as - the SAHEL, desertification, global warming, climate change as environmental issues. At the human level it connects with problems relating to population increases affecting levels of income and development. As an additional issue it introduces the need for emergency aid programs and for overall plans for development. There is opportunity to search on the WEB for additional information. The shrinking of the water coverage within the Lake Chad Basins is seen through the series of Satellite photographs which allows students to follow the process by remote sensing. An added obstacle to development and living condition improvements is the presence and impact of Boko Haram within the the Lake Chad catchment area of Nigeria and along the borders of the Lake Chad Basins. At the foundation level this unit could be studied at Primary School/Lower Secondary levels as “the shrinking lake”. At Middle to Upper Secondary levels the material could be used to consider issues of Emergency Aid Relief (UN/Oxfam/Medicine sans Frontieres/Plan/World Food Relief/UN Refugee Programmes) . It also introduces research possibilities into global warming, global climate change, ITC/pressure cell changes that could be affecting global climates. Use the maps, diagrams, photographs to encourage in class discussion and debate. The attachments provide the flexibility for in class or home use by providing hard copies. The choice of black and white or colour attachments are provided. While this is basically a study of inland rivers and lakes its potential use is much broader.

DESERTIFICATION IN THE SAHEL OF AFRICA -CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES

DESERTIFICATION IN THE SAHEL OF AFRICA -CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES

In a world where populations pressures place strains on ecological systems the added strain of desertification adds an additional problem. The SAHEL of Africa is an area between the northern desert (Sahara) and the wetter climate zones of the savanna lands. It spans twelve African countries. Most of these have high levels of population pressure and growth. Through the use of maps, diagrams, photographs and selected situations this unit explains why the SAHEL is the major region where desertification is occurring. The unit explores the causes (natural and human) and recognises the consequences. Many of the pages are designed so that teachers can screen them and discuss them in class. The attachment pages are provided so that teachers can have flexibility in how they are used i.e., within the classroom or as individual home study activities. The story of the headman in the abandoned village of Northern Nigeria is provided so that students can gain some idea of the personal impact those affected by desertification experience. The pages providing posters (Oxfam and Unicef) indicate the emergency situationS faced by countries within the SAHEL. The aid programmes are created to assist in the short term. Coping with desertification in the longer term requires more complex and detailed planning.

Climate change KS5 Geography - real human stories to teach Global Governance, Water & Carbon cycles

Climate change KS5 Geography - real human stories to teach Global Governance, Water & Carbon cycles

This two-unit resource accompanies 10 film clips from the film Thank You For the Rain - available free on Doc Academy Thank You For The Rain touches upon core Geographical themes including the role of carbon and water cycles in shaping our environment and how humans both drive and mitigate against environmental change. Using film to examine these processes from the point of view of a Kenyan farmer turned climate activist, helps to bring them to life for students. This two-lesson unit covers physical and human processes within the curriculum, demonstrating how they are in fact interlinked. They could be used as a segue between the core themes of Water and Carbon Cycles and Global Governance. Lesson 1 focuses on the links between the carbon and water cycles and the role of feedback mechanisms in Kitui county, Kenya. Students will require some prior knowledge of the how these cycles work before embarking on this lesson. Lesson 2 follows on from Lesson 1 by assessing the role global agreements in mitigating against the effects of rising C02 levels and climate change and what this may mean for farmers such as Kisilu.

African Countries and Capitals - Puzzle

African Countries and Capitals - Puzzle

African Countries and Capitals - Puzzle Students should match the countries with their capitals. There are 30 countries and their capitals in the puzzle. Some of the countries are located only partly in Asia. I’ve included three different sizes of the same puzzle. The smaller size is only three pages and is great if you are going to print of individual copies for students to practice in class or at home. The larger size requires 8 pieces of paper and quite a bit of space to solve – fun for centers and group work. The extra-large size requires 24 pieces of paper. Cut out the puzzle pieces (or even better if your students do it themselves) and students are to solve the puzzle so that it matches the solution provided. If your students are going to cut out the pieces then no prep is needed – the puzzle is not in order. I’ve been using these puzzles for years with great success! I recommend printing the puzzles on colourful paper and laminating them. This way you only have to cut them out once and they will last for years! What is included in this product? • The solution to the puzzle – Pages 2 • The normal size puzzle – Pages 3 – 5 • The large size puzzle – Pages 6 – 13 • The extra-large size puzzle – Pages 14-37 • Questions and Answers in a table format for easy grading or you can cut these out to play a matching game – Pages 38 – 40 My students love doing these types of puzzles. This product can also be used as a perfect revision of the school work to do at home. All answers can be easily checked thanks to the included solution to the puzzle or questions and answers shown in a table. Thank you for checking my resources.

Throughout this topic, pupils will be given the opportunity to explore music from different countries and cultures around the globe, including: West Africa, Australia, Poland, Ireland, Jamaica and Native America. Each week will focus on a different country.
