MEKONG RIVER STUDY PART 1 - LIFE ON AND AROUND THE CAI BE PORT IN VIETNAM

MEKONG RIVER STUDY PART 1 - LIFE ON AND AROUND THE CAI BE PORT IN VIETNAM

This unit has a focus on life around the port of Cai Be - Vietnam. This settlement depends on the water within the Mekong system. The water level varies during the year - being at its height when the Mekong has greater flow levels. The residents around the water's edge and those living in boats on the water adapt to the water conditions. Sample studies of a small scale family business are included because they represent the dozens of enterprises within the settlement. But Cai Be is also a tourist attraction. It is a destination for tourist companies bringing visitors from Ho Chi Minh City. Others reach the destination by taking side excursions off Mekong River Cruises. Take your students on a boat ride through the port. Find out how one small company uses the resources from the Mekong floodplain. Venture into the side channel and see the larger processing factories. The attachments provide an opportunity to distribute hard copies. This is part 1 of a series of studies on the Mekong River - a major river of South East Asia

THE TONLE SAP LAKE AND RIVER OF CAMBODIA -AN INLAND WATER STUDY

THE TONLE SAP LAKE AND RIVER OF CAMBODIA -AN INLAND WATER STUDY

Potentially this unit has multiple uses across age ranges from primary to secondary levels in geography and environmental studies. The lake and connecting river have rather unique hydrology in significant variations in water level and reverses flows of the Tonle Sap River linking the lake with the Mekong River. One suggested approach is to use this as an information gathering tutorial so that students can fill-in the worksheet (at the end of the unit) as the pages are screened. This unit supports the Australian geography curriculum at senior levels - Unit 1 - Natural and ecological hazards (flooding); Unit 2 - Sustainable places - Year 6 - Asia - geographical diversity; Year 10 Asia - Inland water study. The very large Tonle Sap Lake is the largest freshwater lake in SE Asia and supports about 2 million people around its perimeter. It also has historical significance because the presence of this lake and the in-flowing Siem Reap River had relevance for the locating of the large sandstone cities within the Angkor region during the development of the Khmer Empire. Join the trip along the Tonle Sap River. Cross the Tonle Sap Lake and gain some understanding of the importance of this inland water system for the people of Cambodia. The attached worksheets in general and pdf form are essential additions if you choose to treat this resource material as a tutorial.

THE ORIGIN -EXPANSION-ACHIEVEMENTS AND COLLAPSE OF THE KHMER EMPIRE OF CAMBODIA

Here is a resource with potentially a whole range of uses. It can stand alone as an investigation into "lost cities in the forest". It fits into medieval history and histories of Empires. It fits in with significant urban developments of the Middle Ages. It can be used in studies of World Heritage Sites - Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom (Bayon Temple). It touches themes of Hindu and Buddhist religions. In the investigation phase of the Angkor region it indicates the role of satellite imagery, scientific investigations of dendrochronology to link with climate change. Take your students into the forests north of Siem Reap Cambodia and they can be like the first foreign missionaries who ventured in an area on the strength of local stories of a lost civilisation. Discover the ruined temple of Ta Prohm (see the picture) and then follow the discoveries of the large urban complexes of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. Carefully selected photographs and maps will allow your students to see the scope and skill of the builders of the temples, canals, moats and bridges of the Angkor area. Enter Angkor Thom across the causeway and through the South Gate as the Chinese Zhou Daguan did centuries ago. Who was Zhou Daguan? Well he is part of the discovery. His worksheet and the question sheet are provided as attachments. This unit will enhance studies of Asian environment, history and culture.

Year 7 Making Connections 2017-2018 7) Continents and Oceans WITH ANSWERS

The lesson teaches the students the continents and oceans of the world. The settler focuses on assessing previous learning from Primary school. The starter activity is called Puzzler whereby students in groups have to assemble a picture of the world map [seen on the slides] and stop the YouTube Clip the Final Countdown and tell the key words. Activity 1 is naming the 7 continents and 5 oceans on a world map (sheet attached). This has ANSWERS. The Activity 2 is a quiz on different parts of the world WITH ANSWERS. The development is a debate on whether local or international connections are more important in a style of MOCK OF THE WEEK. The mini-plenary is YMCA analysis to visually see whether students have met the LOs. I have also included an additional development activity on guessing the flags and a mini-plenary on Phones4U. The final plenary is Artefact. This was used in a History lesson taught last year. The students circulate the room and look at different objects- they try to name these objects, their origin in a country and whether it is a local, national or international connection.
