Used Karabo's PowerPoint with lower-ability Year 8 during International Dimension, it really got them talking. Beautiful presentation, simple but colourful layout - all the questions really helped. Thank you for sharing.
Africa - All About Africa PowerPoint. Studying Africa? An overview of Africa, complete with animations, interesting facts, photographs from different countries in Africa, and important information about climate, geography, people, social issues, and politics. Discusses the climatic zones and ecosystems of each of the U.N. regions of Africa at length...from the pyramids and deserts of North Africa, to the Sahel and desertification of West Africa, to the savannas and mountains of East Africa, the jungles of central Africa, and the semi-arid mountains of South Africa. Also, covers other important issues, a few for example...poverty, life-expectancy, kwashiorkor, and the abolishment of apartheid in South Africa. You can use this in sections as you study each region of this great continent. 56 slides. - HappyEdugator Updated March 2015.
This photo collection would make an excellent starting point for anyone starting the topic 'Africa' or looking at African animals. <br />
The photos could be printed off and laminated and made into a colourful display. <br />
The students could be given the photos and asked to research the animal and in the photo and prepare a report on who it lives.<br />
It is a great set of resources for comparing and contrasting life in their town and life across Africa.<br />
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!
