This is the preparation and the assessment for a case study on the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Students will be creating a brochure that informs people on what is happening in the Masai Mara- where it is located, the species that live in it, what problems tourism is having, how people can be a good tourist, and how other national parks can learn from the Masai Mara.

Students use their knowledge of population and learn how to read choropleth maps to understand which areas in Kenya are the most and least populated and can determine the best place for a national park.
This bundle contains all of the lessons for a KS3 unit on Rivers that goes over the processes and features for the upper, middle and lower course.
