Nigeria: The Impacts of Transnational Corporations

AQA GCSE Geography lesson as part of the Nigeria: A Newly Emerging Economy unit. The lesson is roughly one hour long but can be shortened or extended. In this lesson we introduce the concept of a TNC. We then do a quick activity on the incentives for TNC’s to locate their operations in different countries. The pupils then complete a sorting exercise on the problems and benefits of TNC’s in general before we look at Shell’s operations in the Niger Delta. The pupils create a visual chart to show the overall benefits and costs, but also the extent to which those factors are benefits or costs. We then go on to answer a 6 mark question with a structure strip for support. Included is:

Starter on TNC’s in Nigeria
Exercise on incentives for TNC’s in countries
Sorting activity on costs and benefits
Costs and benefits chart on Shell Oil
GCSE style question with structure strip

Hope this helps.
