Year 12 - Nexus Thinking

For part of the DP Geography course the students are required to explore complex problems where there is not a clear solution. To introduce this idea to the students they were asked to cut out a series of hexagons which had a number of statements on them relating to food, water and energy. The students were then asked to group the issues and then try and relate them by joining the different sides of the hexagons together. The group then discussed why the tasks was challenging and where the interrelationships between the statements were. Below is a series of photographs showing the students working along with their nexus thinking hexagon posters.
