This lesson uses an article that appeared in a recent edition as a stimulus for exploration of a highly topical issue – migration.
It targets many aspects of the KS2 programme of study for geography, including place and locational knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills. It also has strong links with English, maths (using real-life data), global learning and SMSC.
The Week Junior is a current affairs magazine for children aged eight to 14. These resources will help you explore the highly topical issue of migration with KS2.
Use them to help children:
Know where some of the world’s countries frequently mentioned in the media are located
Identify and understand geographical similarities and differences
Appreciate that people move between places (migration) and the reasons for this
The resources include the full lesson plan by Emma Espley which originally appeared in Teach Primary issue 12.8, plus articles from The Week Junior, worksheets, statistics and PowerPoints.
