Students have learnt prices and food vocabulary. Students will work in groups (three or four is best). Cut the request slips up and turn over. Put the betting board in the centre. Students will need a betting chip. One student picks up a request slip and reads out ('vorrei una trancia di torta&'). The other students guess how much it will cost and place their chip on the board. The first student reveals the answer (in brackets below request) and the closest answer wins. As the game progresses, students can remember/work out the answers. Students take in turns to be the reader.
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!
