NINE-USA CITIES

NINE-USA CITIES

This presentation can be used for children between the ages of 9 and sixteen. There are fifty five slides and thirty nine pages of additional resource materials. I have selected the following cities because of their contrasting site, situation and geographical locations. They are: Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. This selection of cities offers extended studies in both Physical and Human Geography. Included in the slide notes and the resource file are suggested work challenges involving on line work, historical links, geographical writing skills, discussions and other map drawing exercises. The presentation can be targeted at nine and ten year old students but it will be necessary to use the shortened version of the script. Children between the age of eleven and fourteen should be able to cope well with most of the challenges. Key Stage 4 (fourteen to sixteen years) students involved in examinations will be able to link this resource with a large range of the exam topics. Some examples include: Boston and New York - Settlements, site, situation and geographical location. New Orleans - Flooding, Mississippi Drainage Basin, River features including deltas. Detroit - Industrial and population change. Chicago and Detroit - Location, Waterways and Trade, Glaciation and the Great Lakes. Los Angeles and San Francisco - Environmental Hazards and Tourism. Las Vegas - Desert environment, Water resources and the Entertainment Industry. Washington DC - Capital City, history, location, population, government and tourism. There are several IT challenges on offer that involve constructing a quiz word grid, following the course of the River Colorado by using on line maps, developing knowledge of site, situation and geographical location with a starting point in Downtown Chicago. The whole project is aimed at developing a wide range of geographical knowledge along with IT skills and the opportunity to improve writing techniques in preparation for higher level studies. I personally would use this resource for Year 9 groups in preparation for Key Stage 4 Geography. The History content makes it just that little bit more interesting.

Three different activities: each activity would be more than 1 lesson long for younger children, but each may last for an hour with Year 6 children. Focuses on key areas from the Geography curriculum. All activities are research based so would require laptops/ Ipads to complete. Focuses on the countries that will be taking part in the World Cup: locating the countries, capital cities, facts about the physical geography, matching flags to countries. Two activities come with answer sheets, the 3rd activity is open ended therefore the answers would have be checked (perhaps cross checked with another pupil who has chosen the same country).
