Stages of the Demographic Transition Model

Stages of the Demographic Transition Model

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!

Alternatively you can complete Geography Hangman on key terms for the starter. The main is group presentations on the 7 impacts of climate change (climate change refugees, rising sea levels, extreme weather, food supply, water shortages, plants and animals and disease and health). I have attached a peer-assessed worksheet for this activity. The students RAG the performances but also create a fact file on each topic. This resource is used as revision for their end of unit test. The development task - which I tend to use in the second lesson - are key questions with ANSWERS. The plenary is split into two for both the lessons - spelling key word catch and taboo.

The lesson has a work booklet and introduces students into the historical past of the colonisation of Africa. It has source work and questions from a video link- seen opposite is the ANSWERS. The lesson starts with a political cartoon and key questions to discuss in pairs. The starter is GeoSingStar whereby students create a poem, rap or song on 6 facts about Africa- this uses the new edition of the Geog.1 textbook or the pages of the Longmans School Atlas. The mini-plenary can be a task before the starter whereby students work independently to discover facts on Africa using the two textbooks cited. They then use this as a think-pair-share task. This will help with the factual knowledge for the GeoSingStar the following lesson. The main activity is a video link with questions for the scramble for Africa. The challenge task is analysis of political cartoons. Both activities has a mark scheme. The main activity uses the pages of the Geog.1 textbook to create a story board on the colonisation of Africa (the video link can be also be used). This works on the 'because' technique (SEE LEARNING WALL RESOURCES). The development is anagrams with an extension task, which is followed by hot potato.
