Living In The City – Shanty Towns/Favelas

Shanty towns are found on the outskirts of many large cities especially in LEDCs. The people living here must contend with harsh environments with little access to clean water, electricity, and struggle to get jobs and capital. These worksheets look at the push and pull factors surrounding relocating, and the advantages and disadvantages of different residential locations within cities. The materials to build homes are examined alongside discussing the common issues found within shanty towns, their priorities, and the costs to moderate these to better their lives.

A range of individual and group activities are incorporated within these worksheets, including, drawing, annotating their thoughts, and ideas and developing arithmetic skills.

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.
