Lagos: Introducing Lagos

AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the new specification Unit 2A: In this lesson we introduce Lagos as a case study for a city in an NEE.

We start with the pupils looking at a variety of photo’s trying to work out where the photos might be taken. They are all of Lagos of course, this is to introduce the pupils to the variety, and inequality in the city.

We then look an introductory video to Lagos to gauge the pupils first impressions. The pupils then go on to describe to location of Lagos. I use the C>L>O>C>K formula but this can be changed to whatever you like. We then look at some key facts or indicators about Lagos. We compare this to the same key facts as London. the pupils use this information to explain what Lagos is like and what challenges it may have. This allows the pupils to understand how it compares to a city they may well be familiar with. We finish with a GCSE style question on the importance both regionally and internationally of Lagos.

In a nutshell lesson includes:

Photo starter
Video clip
Describing the location of Lagos task.
Worksheet on key facts and indicators of Lagos.

Hope this saves you some valuable planning time.
