Who Lives On Mount Kilimanjaro?

Who Lives On Mount Kilimanjaro?

The Chagga people have lived on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro for hundreds of years, they believe the mountain is holy and treat it with respect. However, since the area was given National Park status in 1970 there has been a sharp increase in hikers. With 18,000 hikers a year and 54,000 porters the Chagga people and their mountain are starting to feel the strain. The students imagine they help run a primary school in the countryside of Tanzania. Many families living in the area find it difficult to afford school uniforms, shoes, books and lunches which results is children skipping days at school or not coming at all. The students have been tasked with trying to double the attendance at the school with the aid of an additional £15,000. What would they spend this money on and why?

What Is The Future Of Everest Base Camp?

What Is The Future Of Everest Base Camp?

Mount Everest has two base camps; one on its south side in Nepal and one on the north in Tibet. Located on the south side at 5,360 meters is Nepal’s South Base Camp, situated within Sagarmatha National Park and is also a World Heritage Site. This camp is very basic but used by climbers during their ascent and descent of Everest. This trek is one of the most popular routes in the Himalayas and is hiked by thousands of people every year. The students task is to imagine a proposal has been made to build a more permanent settlement at the Everest Base Camp. They have two tasks to complete: - Task One: A written piece of work detailing the views of the different groups using the area, including your own point of view - Task Two: Drawing a detailed plan of your idea for a village which would suit the groups who use the Everest Base Camp and the facilities they would need. Your choice of design and facilities will need to be explained.

Should The South Downs Have Been Turned Into A National Park?

Should The South Downs Have Been Turned Into A National Park?

The South Downs National Park is the newest national Park in England. It became fully operational on 1st April 2011 and covers 628 square miles stretching for 87 miles across Winchester in the west to Eastbourne in the east through the counties of Hampshire, West Sussex and East Sussex. The park covers the chalk ridge of the South Downs and the Western Weald with its heavily wooded sandstone and clay hills and vales. The only National Trail that lies completely inside the national park is the South Down Way which spans the entire length of the park. These worksheets highlight the purpose of national parks and the pros and cons put forward by different groups which the new status would effect. The students are then asked to weigh these opinions up and debate whether they think the South Downs should have been granted National Park status.

Understanding Trade - What are the UK's biggest exports?

Understanding Trade - What are the UK's biggest exports?

This resource is designed for upper KS2 and lower KS3 children. It is part of a wider unit called Understanding Trade. The presentation starts by recapping what imports and exports are. It goes on to look at the UK's top ten exports - mainly manufactured products - and the human and physical factors which help UK exports in this area. In the activity, children use Microsoft PowerPoint to create a table of the UK's top ten exports. They then use an online chart maker to produce either a pie chart or bar graph to illustrate this data. The activity is differentiated three ways. If you like this resource, please review it.
