KS4: Informal settlements and rapid urbanisation
Use these materials about Mukuru – a slum in Nairobi in Kenya – to construct an enquiry around rapid urbanisation and the growth of slums. Why do people leave other parts of Kenya to live there? And what are the positive and negative impacts of rapid growth on these people’s lives? These teacher notes and accompanying film, presentation, photo pack and pupil sheets, are designed to support a KS4 unit of work. Red Nose Day is an initiative of Comic Relief, registered charity 326568 (England/Wales) SC039730 (Scotland).
