Short video on Fair Trade campaign to change how Asda and Tesco sell their bananas and to make them all fair trade
So why do these people want to make all bananas fair trade? Well most people would agree that trade between different countries is unfair and that already wealthy countries gain more from trade and make more profits than already poor countries do. this means the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor. This web page explains this in good detail
The BBC has a good page on the advantages of fair trade. you can find this here. remember revising this will also help you with you with the Fair Trade part of your RS “world poverty” topic
I found this map via @brainpickings on twitter. It is from a book about the best info graphics of the year which if you are interested you can buy online from here
The designers of the map said “Our cat Tibby disappeared suddenly and we were devastated. Then, five weeks later, he returned, fat and happy. We were overjoyed he was back, but where had he gone? We decided to strap a GPS unit to his collar and find out where he spent his days.’ (Caroline Paul, writer, and Wendy MacNaughton, illustrator)
So if you are a cat owner, what map would your cat draw?
If you are a geography student, what can you tell about the neighbourhood Tibby lives in from the map?
And if you are a geography teacher, how would you use this resource in a lesson?

Now watch this video. How much preparation, organisation and planning went into this to make it possible to shoot all this in JUST ONE TAKE?

I am attaching a digital copy of the checklist for this topic. You can use this version and change what you have written in each box after you have revised each part of the topic
pupil Water on the Land excel checklist
We have looked at hard and soft engineering for rivers. Next lesson you will be answering one of these two questions. You should revise the lessons content and plan for the question itself by reading through how the examiners awarded marks for these two questions
Explain how flooding can be managed using hard engineering strategies. (6 marks)
Hard and soft engineering strategies are used to manage flooding. Choose either hard engineering or soft engineering and explain why it is the better strategy. (8marks)
