Description / Objective / Linked materials
The New York unit uses a familiar and iconic city to introduce two important basic features of cities, growth and sprawl. The example is also used as an example of the importance in a geographical example of establishing location context from global down to local. I would suggest using the USA Differentiated homework sheet before using this presentation. When locating New York in this presentation there is a slide on Megalopolis and conurbations that links back to the London unit or on to the Los Angeles and South West USA presentations. There is a Megalopolis Differentiated Homework in the pack 3 that can be adapted for year 7. Assess learning and understanding using the Revise and Test presentations included.
3 lesson units – location, skyline and special features.
