Description

Students research their local community and how it satisfies their different needs.

The research template includes space for students to research the following about their community:

  • Population size
  • Location of their water source
  • Food sources
  • Location of the nearest power station and its type
  • Health services.

There is also space for students to draw a community map and indicate the positions of needs satisfying locations and the directions and distances to locations outside the community, i.e. power and water sources.

Set this task to students when looking into how resources are used to satisfy community needs. It can be completed individually or in pairs. Alternatively, you could complete it with students digitally or scaffold by researching a different community’s information.

There are two versions of the template, with the main difference being that one has power types specified, and the other has blank space for students to include the information.

Print as many copies as necessary, depending on how you will implement the activity. This resource is included in the Year 5 Economics and Business Unit.
