Geography of Riverside Settlements
This Geography module explores local archaeological evidence for the arrival of prehistoric communities into the Worcestershire region. It is designed to follow on from lessons which have examined the influence which successive ice ages have had on the physical landscape and, its main theme, is concerned with how river courses and natural resources have shaped human settlement from pre-agricultural times, through to the first farming communities.
- Pre Farming Communities Lesson 1
- Pre Farming Communities Lesson 2
- Farming Communities Lesson 3
- Farming Communities Lesson 4
Although the lesson plans target the Key Stage 3 study of Rivers and Settlements, the full resource makes it possible for teacher and pupil to explore the module more deeply, either in set project work, or by returning to it for aspects of the GCSE study of Settlements.
