Really good general introduction for a special week. I used it to introduce a mixed-age group of children, who are in the 'India' team for Sports Day, a little of what India is like.
Thank you for sharing.
Visuals of a globe and map help establish the location, regions and key geographical features of India. These include the cool mountain region in the north, the hot dry central plains and the hot humid tropical south. Population figures, the number of languages spoken and the main religious groups are detailed. The three seasons are described and the monsoon season with the risk of flooding is illustrated.
Tokens to hand out to children as a reward for good behavior. Children can write their names on the back and the tokens can they can either be selected (raffle style) to win a prize or children could have a reward when they have collected a certain number.
This powerpoint explains scale and links this to how measure distances on a map, through a step by step giuide through the process. In addition to the PPT there is a distances work sheet with seperate answers that get increasingly difficult and recap other key skills, such as 4 and 6 figure grid references.. <br />
This is a more interesting alternative to textbooks to help students learn about the five stages of the Demographic Transition Model.
Give out the note frames (in A3) and then have students rotate the information about each stage around - this is a 'market place' style activity, but moving the sheets is easier than moving students!
Each stage also has information on a case study country. These were chosen to align with the popular Nelson textbook, so absent students can copy up with ease.
I would welcome feedback on how the resources could be improved!
