I used this comprehension for a South America unit where my Year 5 class researched information about the 'Yanomami' tribe of the Amazon Rainforest. The comprehension helped them discover new information and brush up on their comprehension skills. We also used this in the lesson - learners used the text to identify features of a non-chronological report.
Resource outlining the effects of the tornado in Kentucky 2011 and in Stockport. students explore the different effects of the tornado and how they are linked. Lessons can be stand alone or used as comparisons.
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!
