Year 9 - Tourism Good or Bad?

This week the Year 9 students in class 'o' have been exploring the impacts that tourism can bring to areas. They initially watched two clips on the positives and negatives of tourism and wrote notes on an online sharing platform called padlet. The group were then divided into four teams to write on flipchart paper the specific social, economic, environmental, economic and political impacts from their notes. Each team rotated around the flipchart paper to extend their peers ideas. The group will now be writing an extended piece on whether a tourist attraction should be built close to where they live. Notes and photographs of the student working can be found below.
