A lesson for the topic of Africa. Ideal for Years 7 to 9. Previously taught in a 1hr lesson. Firstly, the pupils will write 3 words to describe Africa (usually poor, hot etc). The pupils will be questioned about their perceptions of Africa, before being shown two maps that portray Africa in a certain way, to which they will again be questioned on whether they agree or not. The main activity of the lesson is the 'Africa or not?' game, where they simply have to write whether they believe the image is of Africa or not, the answers tend to surprise the class massively. This game is excellent for class engagement across all abilities. Towards the end of the lesson, the pupils are asked to reconsider their initial thoughts. Homework included: To give the pupils a new sheet for their 3 words to describe Africa and give them the option to change them.
