Geography Of Health: Does Where We live Impact Physical Fitness? (Unit Of Work)

This Unit Of Work helps students to define ‘food deserts’ and outline research which has attempted to identify these within the United Kingdom. They will be able to explain how the location of food outlets within the United Kingdom and America influence the geography of affordable health food baskets and identify what is meant by ‘obesogenic environments.’ In addition, they will be able to establish whether the physical environment has an impact to exercise and whether there is a link between social deprivation and fast-food availability.

A range of individual and group activities are incorporated within this booklet for students including; drawing and explaining their thoughts and ideas, drawing maps and graphs and interpreting all of these.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
