Lagos: Urban Challenges Case Study (10+ lessons)

(5)
*NEW AQA GCSE GEOGRAPHY A SPEC* These resources cover an in-depth focus on the urban case study of Lagos. I intend to use these resources to cover at least 10 lessons, with the students' aim to create a detailed A3+ academic poster by the end. The PowerPoint includes all main activities and instructions, working through the research one stage at a time - covering: - Background information/key facts about Lagos - Challenges faced in Lagos - Opportunities presented by urbanisation in Lagos - How urban planning can be used to overcome particular challenges presented by urbanisation, e.g. Eko Atlantic and the Makoko Floating School Used for high-ability Year 10, but can be easily adapted to any level. The controversial issues were particularly engaging for students. Please rate my resources! Thank you :)
China's One Child Policy
emmarh0810

China's One Child Policy

(5)
This lesson explores China's One Child Policy - the background, issues and different opinions. This lesson includes a range of activities, in particular reading through a short passage on the policy and blacking out irrelevant information, rather than highlighting the relevant - this is a really good activity if you want to challenge them! I had originally planned this as one lesson, but students become so fascinated in the topic that it is much better to spend time debating the policy and spread over two lessons. Used for 7th grade, but am also going to be using these activities with 9th grade too so could easily be adapted for other grades and abilities. Please rate my resources! Thank you :)

(0)
An interactive lesson focusing on how humans are disrupting and interfering with our water supplies.

It can get quite loud, but students loved playing the game and were extremely engaged. Following the game, students then take a look at Coca-Cola as a case study to stretch their learning further. All resources are fully differentiated and include a support sheet with definitions of key words on for lower ability.
