Investigating Cities - Shenzhen, China

Investigating Cities - Shenzhen, China

This is a 4-page worksheet that gets students to investigate the city of Shenzhen in China which has grown from little more than a fishing village in the 1970s to an expanding metropolis of 11 million people today. Shenzhen is commonly known as the "Silicon Valley of China". The worksheet has some mapping questions that look at Shenzen's location and changes in land use over time, some statistics on the climate of the city, and a series of questions on the growth of the city and its impact that can be answered from the BBC News (link is provided). An answer key is provided for teachers. The worksheet would be useful for the Australian Curriculum unit on Liveability and for those jurisdictions where urban development is a focus, perhaps from lower to upper high school Geography.

Identifying similarities and differences between Anglo Saxon and modern day London

Identifying similarities and differences between Anglo Saxon and modern day London

This is a year 4 resource aimed at improving children's enquiry skills. It takes two maps, one of Anglo Saxon London and one of modern day London and prompts children to investigate where modern place names were derived. It will also prompt children to compare the human and physical features of the two maps. I suggest printing maps A3 so children can clearly read place names. This resource is differentiated 3 ways. It is a cross curricular lesson, taking objectives from history and geography.
