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.
