Description / Objective / Linked materials
The Sri Lanka study can be used in a number of ways as an example of a monsoon climate, natural resources and the problems of economic development. I have used this unit to dip into to illustrate all of these themes and as an introduction before starting an assessment project on tourism. Use with the Basic Resources Differentiated Homework. Assess learning and understanding using the Revise and Test presentations included.
