Impact of Climate Change in an LEDC

This year we are teaching the new CCEA GCSE Geography Syllabus and we have started with the unit on Weather and Climate.

We had lots of information in the textbook on impacts to MEDCs but not much on LEDCs.

Attached is a mystery type card sort activity with the key question:

In November 2008, President Mohamed Nasheed announced plans to look into purchasing new land in India, Sri Lanka, and Australia. Why?

Included within the cards are subheadings to be used to aid classification (Economic, Social, Environmental, and Response).

(I can’t take all the credit for this – it was a team effort with my colleague Michelle)
