Two resources for able KS4 students. The first is a vocab match-up activity to introduce students to some key vocab relating to Global Problems. The second is a text relating to Global Problems, followed by a True / False / Not in Text activity, a sentence building activity using a toolkit to help students quantify their levels of concern, plus some questions for students to answer about what should or should not be done in order to improve things.
