Introduction

The aim of this activity is to raise awareness about the environment, to develop observation skills and to  think critically about how human exploitation can change the environment.

Available in printable, PDF format:

 

You will need:

  • A copy of Worksheet 1 for each pair of students.
  • A colour card (35 x 50 cm) for each pair of students.

Instructions:

1.  Divide the class into pairs and ask the students to bring photos of their favourite landscape or to draw a picture of it.

2.  Give them a copy of Worksheet 1 and ask them to glue their pictures/photos in the box.

3.  Once all the students have their own photos or pictures, ask them to write a description of their landscape underneath the picture/photo.

4.  Ask each pair to make a list of the types of human exploitation that can occur in their chosen landscape.

5.  In order to complete exercise 3 (Worksheet 1), play the song If I Were a Rich Man’ from the musical Fiddler on the Roof.

Discuss what the character would do if he were rich. Have students interview each other about what they would do if they were rich.     Would they do anything to improve the environment?

6.  After completing activity 3, give each pair of students a coloured card and ask them to glue the worksheets on it to make a poster with the information.

7.  Have each pair take turns to prepare an oral presentation using the information included in their worksheets. Their posters should be displayed in the classroom.

8.  Compare the different landscapes.

Questions for debate: What did each landscape look like 50 years ago? Will it look the same in 10, 50 or 100  years time? Praise everyone’s effort.

Extension activity: Ask the students to draw the landscape the way they would like it to be.
