Settlements Booklet

This mini-booklet was created for a pre-GCSE geography group, although there is much overlap with the GCSE syllabuses. It looks at the different types of settlements, land usage, the settlement hierarchy, urbanisation and a Nairobi slum case study.

It was done in 2015, so some of the figures may be a little out of date now, but the theory remains the same, so it should still be relevant to your bog-standard KS3/4 student. Usually, I am really bad at keeping track of sources, but somehow I have managed to keep loads for this booklet, that have been added at the end of the document.

It has cross-over with environmental management and development studies.

To make:

  • Print out.
  • Fold each sheet in half along the shortest length (print on the outside).
  • Fold in half again along the shortest length (pages 1 and 8 on the outside of the first sheet and 3 and 6 on the outside of the second sheet), so that each sheet is a quarter of its original size.
  • All the page numbers should now be at the bottom of each side, so place the second folded sheet inside the first folded sheet, and hopefully that gives you pages 1-8 as a readable booklet.
