Classifying the effects of a drought

June3

 

Goal

 I can classify/categorise the different types of effects of a drought

APK

Discuss Cape Town Water Crisis

New information:

 When you systematically classify/categorise things, you can use this algorithm to make it rigorous and productive:

Classify: group similar items together based on similar traits

  1. Name items to sort into categories
  2. Decide on possible categories based on possible differences
  3. Sort the items and say why they are in a category
  4. Say how items could go into different categories
  5. Tell what you know now (new idea) or could do with the information (new item)

 

New info & Application:

 1. Name items to sort into categories- things that are affected by drought

Show pictures of drought- list all things that are affected & how they are affected

In peer mentor partners, you should skim and scan this article to find specific effects of drought (10 min)- https://kids.kiddle.co/Drought#Consequences_of_drought

drought effects list

  1. Decide on possible categories based on possible differences– brainstorm possible categories

 

 

 

(e.g- human/ non human;    long term/short term;     living/non living;      plant/animal/non-living;    natural/artificial                                                      things humans can do something about/things we can’t)

Decide on the categorisation process you will use   Write: what are your categories?

 

3. Sort the items and say why they are in a category

Write:  What belongs in each category?

draw a picture /diagram/infographic of a fictional place that labels/lists effects of a drought/ use a system (such as brackets under your labels) to clearly categorise the items you have labeled

 

4. Say how items could go into different groups

Write: Could you create/choose different categories- how would you arrange the items now?

 

Goal reflection:

 4. Tell what you know now (new idea) or could do with the information (new item)

Which type of classification do you think is most useful? Why?

How might different types of categories help us to understand or to respond to drought?
