How can the Favelas be improved? Trumps Game - Teach Me Geography

How can the Favelas be improved? Trumps Game - Teach Me Geography

Aim: This is a fun and competitive TRUMPS GAME that explores issues relating to improving living conditions in favela areas of Brazil, helping students to focus on a variety of social, economic and environmental challenges that rapid urbanisation and migration has brought to the poorest areas of the city. Although this resource is based within the slum or shanty settlements of Brazil, the content within it is just as applicable to any poorer urban area of low income countries. Learning Objectives: To research what life is like for people who live in the favelas of Brazil. To analyse a range of different ways that favelas can be improved to make them better for everyone. To evaluate what is the best way to improve living standards in poorer urban areas of low income countries. This resource includes: A set of 20 beautifully designed, full colour .pdf gamecards, ready to be printed out back-to-back and used straight away. A set of 7 3x3 full-colour .pdf gamecards, ready to be printed out single sided and used straight away. A beautifully designed, full colour .pdf worksheet to be used to collect information and analyse information about improving living standards in the favela both during and after play. A full colour .pdf rules and teaching ideas sheet to be displayed on a screen during the lesson, or printed out and used with the playing groups. All of our resources have been tried and tested by teachers in a variety of classroom environments - they have also been regularly rated as Outstanding by Ofsted and other review bodies. And remember, it is always better to Like, Share and Review!

Conflict in National Parks

Conflict in National Parks

A lesson (or easily a week’s worth) on National Park conflict issues. This is based around a ‘case study’ looking at a map of a local farming area (which I made-up) to get students to consider the problems created by proposed changes in UK National Parks. Includes maps, questioning tasks, letter writing cloze exercise, word search etc. All of the worksheets are included in the powerpoint and I’ve added some notes about how I used this. Additional ones could easily be made as needed by editing slides. Initially made for an interview lesson and then adapted for teaching (once I got the post - yay!) It was made for low ability SEN students in year 9 but I think could be easily adapted (and I’ve used it with year 7 since as well so quite flexible). I found it took 2-3 lessons with mine to do it nicely. Thanks for looking :)
