I love an information collector activity and use them regularly with KS5 in preparation for writing essays.
I haven’t used one in a while with KS3 so thought I’d make an activity for my year 8 classes this week. We are investigating the social, economic, environmental and political impacts of the 3 gorges dam.
Students will be given a set of resources and will use them to fill in their sheets. Nice little task that encourages student inquiry. Students will then use the information they collect in an extended writing task.
I’ve compiled a selection of facts, statements and images from a variety of sources for the students to use.
You can download a copy of the resource here.
Hope its of use.
