Sustainable tourism assessment

Sustainable tourism assessment

This is a short ( 3 mins approx) mid-unit test to check students understanding on the concept of sustainable tourism. It could also easily be set as a classwork or homework task. Students must show they can define sustainable tourism, explain the negative impacts of mass tourism, and annotate an ecolodge with its sustainable features. This was originally written for year 9 as an introduction to the Unit 1 travel and Tourism Btec course ( and unit 1 examination). It could also easily be used for Ks3 Geography. Would go well with my other resource on ’ Sustainable tourism & Ecolodges’.

To Plastic or Paper Bag... A matter of waste... Version  2.0

To Plastic or Paper Bag... A matter of waste... Version 2.0

To Plastic or Paper Bag… A matter of waste… Nersion 2.0 Plastic bag bans appear to be on the way to a supermarket near you or around the rest of the world. Resource investigates this problem. A list of web links are given to start pupils on their own research. I have also included a series of links to YouTube Vids - I would watch the documentary and then have pupils rate the social media comments. Do they like or dislike them. Then each has to be reasoned with a reply. I have tried to use as near as possible actual comments. Sorry to those people who have already downloaded this, but I really felt that it could do with a feedback page from a colleague/friend of the pupil completing the worksheet

The sheet can work as an activity on its own or could be used to scaffold a debate task. Resource created for the Environmental Management part of Geography IGCSE Theme 3 but could be used at various levels as the language in the task is not too challenging.
