Nigeria: Quality of Life

AQA GCSE Geography lesson for the Nigeria: A Newly Developing Economy section. The lesson is roughly one hour long but can be extended or shortened. We start by considering what quality of life means with a starter task. We then complete an activity which looks at how an improving economy can improve quality of life. We then move onto a skills task which involves the pupils plotting out indicator data for Nigeria and determining what this shows about quality of life in the country over the last 30 years. The pupils complete and extract task on whether all Nigerians have experienced better quality of life then complete a diagram to show what barriers to improving this are still to be overcome. We then conclude with a 6 mark GCSE style question with some guidance for the pupils if they need it. Included is:

starter activity on quality of life
Annotation task on how improving economy improves quality of life
Graphical skills task on indicator data and interpretation questions
Extract highlighting and interpretation task.
Explanation task on barriers to improving quality of life
6-mark question with guidance and timer

Hope this helps.
