KARUMBA - THE ONLY MAJOR PORT ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA AUSTRALIA

KARUMBA - THE ONLY MAJOR PORT ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA AUSTRALIA

Through a series of 5 stories students will gain an understanding of the layout and function of this remote port. Many Australians are aware that Karumba exists but regard it as a destination for fishing for Barramundi and crocodile spotting. The “Gery nomads” - retired travellers usually towing caravans or arriving in motor homes - often put Karumba on their bucket list of places to visit. There is much more to Karumba than fishing and crocodile viewing. Take your students along the stretch of the Karumba Port near the mouth of the Norman River and there are large buildings which indicate other functions. Learn about Krys the crocodile of unbelievable proportions. Pass the rusting wreck in the mangroves and wonder how it arrived there. Go past the sign where cattle yards exist and recognise the prohibited access. Go past the dredge as it moves back into deeper water to dredge the channel from the deeper waters of the Gulf of Carpentaria and recognise by research how important that process to the population of the town. Look inland to discover the very large Century zinc mine at Lawn Hill and find out how it is connected to the zinc pellet processing plant at Karumba. Then, like the recent advertising programme from the local tourist operators, become aware of the environmental assets in landscape and a range of bird life. Understand why they have included their heading “There’s more to Karumba than fishing and crocodiles”. Find out why those visiting Karumba need to come in the cooler months of the year and avoid the hotter summer months. The attachments assist student understanding. The fill-in attachments could be used to support a type of tutorial approach where the numbered sections matching the page numbers could be screened and the students with some discussion could fill in the answers to provide a record of Karumba. Enjoy the excursion to Karumba but if you are involved in bird watching in the mangroves or on the lowland marshes on the entry road from Normanton, take time to read the warning -“crocodiles eat birds and bird watchers”.

Welcome To Cottonopolis - A Virtual Field Trip to Manchester - Teach Me Geography

Welcome To Cottonopolis - A Virtual Field Trip to Manchester - Teach Me Geography

Aim: This is an amazing and very comprehensive VIRTUAL FIELD TRIP to Manchester that explores issues relating to urban change in the UK, helping students to focus on a variety of social, economic and environmental opportunities and challenges, to be examined in the upcoming AQA GCSE Geography (8035) Paper 2. Learning Objectives: To research a case study of a major city in the UK. To examine the location and importance of the city in the UK and the wider world. To assess impacts of national and international migration on the growth and character of the city. To evaluate how urban change has created opportunities for social and economic growth, increased cultural mixing, recreation, entertainment and employment, the provision of integrated transport systems and environmental solutions including urban greening. To evaluate how urban change has created challenges relating to urban deprivation, inequalities in housing, education, health and employment and increased urban dereliction. To assess the extent to which building on brownfield and greenfield sites and limiting the impact of urban sprawl on the rural–urban fringe, and growth of commuter settlements, has been managed successfully. To evaluate how well a specific urban area manages its waste. To research up-to-date examples of urban regeneration projects to show a range of reasons why the area needed regeneration, the main features of the project and to evaluate what impact these schemes have had on a range of people. This resource includes: A very comprehensive and unique, beautifully designed, 86-page full colour .pdf VIRTUAL FIELD TRIP, fully hyperlinked and presented in such a way that students can move around within the materials at their own pace and in their own way. This can also be used separately by the teacher to control learning of specific aspects of urban change. A beautifully and intuitively designed 32-page full colour .pdf WORK BOOKLET, guiding and prompting students to research, use and evaluate the materials at their own speed and in their own time to meet the learning objectives above. 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.
