Development Dynamics - keywords crosswords Edexcel Geography B (9-1)

(0)
A series of crosswords and word searches written using key words from the Development Dynamics Topic. Two different crosswords - the first has general key terms (GDP, GNI, HDI etc) the second has more specific vocabulary (top-down, bottom-up, TNC, FDI). Wordsearches have clues to the single words hidden inside (developed, emerging, political, social etc) rather than just the answers to get pupils thinkings. Answers to all puzzles are included. I suggest these can be used as starters, homework or revision.

Food miles - design a menu and discover how many miles it travels

Food miles - design a menu and discover how many miles it travels

(0)
This lesson is designed to encourage students to think about where our food comes from and how far it has travelled. Students need food cards which have a photo of food on one side and what it is/where it comes from on the reverse (photocopy food cards sheets back to back and cut up in envelopes) so that they can design their own menu. There is a wide variety of foods with enough choices for all diets and any cards can be omitted for religious reasons. They then map where the food came from and measure the distance travelled to work out the total number of food miles. Results are often very surprising!
