Jelly Babies Population and Migration Game - Complete Lesson

Jelly Babies Population and Migration Game - Complete Lesson

(0)
This interactive and highly engaging lesson set is suitable for KS3 or KS4 students who have been learning about population and migration. The resources include a set of playing cards which have a range of different scenarios linked to changes in a country’s population and causes for migration (longer words are defined/explained in brackets for LA students). Students work in table groups (4-6) and each represent a different country. They take it in turns to draw a card from the deck and must follow the instructions. Each student should begin with a set of jelly babies (I found Asda’s own ‘jelly beans’ to be a suitable substitute as they were much cheaper and vegetarian). Each colour jelly baby represents a different section of the population - therefore students discover how and why a country’s population might change e.g. through natural disasters, lack of opportunities and war. Therefore this activity is suitable for students who have been learning about population structures and/or push and pull factors for migration. The complete lesson pack also contains colourful student worksheets to record their findings and a PowerPoint presentation with clear instructions. The PowerPoint also has instructions for a ‘Think, Pair, Share’ plenary. This lesson was described as “sick” (in a good way) by a number of students!!
