Living On An Island – The Pitcairn People

The Pitcairn People live on the island of Pitcairn, a small landmass which together with Henderson, Ducie and Oeno, make up the Pitcairn Islands Group in the South Pacific. 250 people once inhabited this picturesque island, but this has dwindled to around 50 today, and it is predicted by 2045 only three people of working age will live on the island. The students discuss why they think the populous is leaving the island and what impacts this may have on those remaining. The students learn about the successful beekeeping and honey production on Pitcairn and examine what this could mean for the island’s future.

A range of individual and group activities are incorporated within these worksheets, including, gathering research from print and video, annotating their thoughts, and ideas and drawing and interpretating graphs.

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.
