Wider Curriculum In our Geography Topic , we have looked at the features of Megacities. We looked at both human and physical geography of cities such as:

Tokyo, New York, Delhi, Mumbai, Karachi, Dhaka and Beijing.

Today, your task is to use Secondary Sources to research one of these megacities.

Create a report using non-fiction genre features such as bullet points, headings, subheadings, maps, keys, pictures, labels and captions.

Include information on the location of the city, the size and population of this city. . You may want to report on the most important buildings/sites/attractions in or near this city. Other ideas for you to research are finding details on physical geography (mountains, rivers, etc.,) weather, languages used, currency, main religion. and finding out about this city’s import and export goods.

Try and draw conclusions as to why would so many people choose to live in this particular city. What features are there to support mass living?

Use Computing tools if possible; a Popplet, a PowerPoint presentation, a Word document.
