Famine. What is it?

(2 customer reviews)

The PowerPoint presentation is designed for students in grades 8 and up. It is also appropriate for an adult audience. The notes provide background information for the teacher or group leader. This presentation is meant to give accurate information about a sensitive topic, including what constitutes a famine, what causes a famine and how the world can respond.

This media activity includes two videos suggestions from CBC about the 2017 famine in South Sudan and offers suggested discussion questions.

    Please change ‘historical’ to ‘historic’. Excellent means of introduction to the topic and like many issues globally, the effects lead to numerous other topics.

  2. Roberta Gramlich

    Thanks, Christine. We made the change.

    It is nice to have this PowerPoint to use with my classes. Excellent introduction to the topic. The ” notes” for background information are very useful. I use this as a launching point for further discussions and research with my students.
