How Is Land Used In Urban Areas

This contains a fully resourced, differentiated lesson on how land is used in urban areas, paying particular attention to the Burgess Model. The main part of the lesson involves students drawing a sketch of the Burgess Model accompanied by a written paragraph describing what it shows, then working in pairs to study visual information sheets of each zone (CBD, Inner City, Inner Suburbs, Outer Suburbs) to explain the characteristics of each zone - this involves a very enquiry based approach and a heavy emphasis on them having to justify their answers based on the visual evidence provided).

Learning Objectives: To describe the different zones that can be found in urban areas. To explain how these zones can be used and why they are located there.
