Investigate the causes and effects of deforestation
Deforestation is the clearing, or cutting down, of forests. The word is normally used to describe the actions of humans in removing forests from the planet, rather than destruction caused by such natural events as hurricanes. People have been cutting down trees for thousands of years.

Read the information on deforestation:


Design a poster to help stop deforestation

Try and include:

  • What is deforestation?
  • What are the causes?
  • Facts and figures
  • What can people do to stop deforestation?

Human processes both influence and are influenced by the physical features of environments that offer both possibilities for and constraints to human activity.
Research the most popular tourist destinations in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.


Make a travel brochure for potential visitors to Rio de Janeiro.
Try and include:

  • Travel (how can you get there/ Local airports?)
  • Accommodation (where might people stay?)
  • Attractions (What is there to see and do?)

Examples of travel brochures:

Physical features are the naturally occurring landforms of environments. They include:

  • hills
  • mountains
  • valleys
  • bodies of water, e.g. streams, becks, tarns, rivers, lakes, seas, oceans, lagoons
  • natural resources, e.g. the site of copper, tin, zinc, cobalt (although mines that are created to extract them are human features).

A mountain range refers to a series of hills or mountains arranged in a line and linked together by high ground.
Watch the video on Mountain Ranges around the world.


The Andes is the longest mountain range in South America.

Use the website to help you make a poster about the Andes. Include information on:

  • Location
  • Features
  • Plants and animals
  • People


WC 27 April 2020
Use google maps to investigate the towns of Sãu Paulo in Brazil. Draw a map of the key human features of the town (things that have been built by humans such as bridges, city, town, village, factory, farm, house, office, port, harbour, transport, church and shop.).


Look at the map of Sãu Paulo, zoom in to closely look at one or two of the towns. Compare with a map of Stonehouse. //www.google.com/maps/@51.7450412,-2.2828041,17z">https://www.google.com/maps/@51.7450412,-2.2828041,17z

Make a table comparing the human features in both towns. Similarities in one column, differences in the other.
Research some images of Sãu Paulo. What do you notice about the architecture? Would you want to live there? Give some reasons for your answer.

WC 20 April 2020
