Year 7 Brazil fun decision making task - climate/eco tourism/ flood management strategies

Year 7 Brazil fun decision making task - climate/eco tourism/ flood management strategies

Join Brazilian President Michel Temar on an exciting project to locate a hotel in the Amazon! Your students must take into account where to place their hotel, what type of hotel to build, how to protect it from flooding and also what months the climate would be the best for tourists to visit. Will you listen to the different government advisers to create a harmonious hotel OR aim to make cash quick without considering the consequences? My year 7 LOVED it. Includes a beautiful worksheet with everything they will need to complete this lesson. Could be done in groups, or alone! :) I used it as revision SO - my students already had knowledge of eco tourism, the climate of Brazil AND flood management strategies.
