Acclimatised Civilisations – Unit Plan

Teach Starter Publishing
8 x lessons | Suitable for stages: 2 - 5

This Geography unit investigates how people have migrated and adapted to different environments around the world, developing culture and resources. Students need to use their mapping and investigation skills to understand landscapes, climates and environments and where they are in the world, and why people migrated to them.

It consists of 9 lessons of approximately 60-minutes duration, with the opportunity for multi-session student activities.

The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class. The unit can be shortened by omitting some of the countries/regions.

A knowledge check for monitoring student understanding of the unit objectives is included and will require an additional lesson.

Teachers are encouraged to collect samples of students’ work throughout the unit to add to a learning portfolio. These can also be used to assess students’ understanding of the unit objectives.
