The main aim is…
To explore the challenges in providing water, sanitation and energy in Mumbai (case study)
Key ideas and content…
There are serious social challenges in providing water, sanitation and energy.
Water and sanitation are linked to health and social well being.
People living in squatter settlements (because of rapid urbanisation and poverty) are less likely to have adequate access to amenities such as water, sanitation and energy.
Mumbai is a good example of a city where people don’t have adequate access to amenities such as water, sanitation and energy.
Work through the card sort activity as a class.
Students could complete the discussion, linking activity and photo analysis in groups / pairs.
Pass the photo analysis around, students improve each other’s work.
Students could form their own sentence starters (and share them).
The photo analysis and the summary activity offer assessment opportunities.
Class discussion and evaluation prompts.
