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?

How do we View Migrants? - Intro to Migration/Critical Thinking Skills

How do we View Migrants? - Intro to Migration/Critical Thinking Skills

A lesson I used as an introductory lesson about migration and the different types of migrant and as a way of highlighting biases present in the media and our individual world view. Best used with new groups of students of any year 7-11 as most of the tasks are reflective and discussion based and involve random pairings and a main carousel activity. Very engaging and easy to manage lesson. Could definitely be used in a Tutor time/Citzenship lesson also and possibly for English to alert students to journalistic bias and to help them read texts more critically.

Large cities/urban areas

Large cities/urban areas

There are two lessons here on large urban areas/cities. Both are carefully planned and suited for a GCSE group however, they can be easily adapted for an AS group. One of the lesson is on mega cities; focusing on the definition, distribution and pros and cons of mega cities. The other lesson is a comparison of three different groups of cities - mega cities, primate cities and world cities. This lesson explores the characteristics of all three types of cities an then uses some clever activities to challenge students to explain the differences between them.
