Transport

Transport

Types of transport

Transport is needed to move people and goods from one place to the other. Our parents must get to their work and we must get to school. Fresh bread and milk must be delivered daily to the café / superette. Postal items must be transported worldwide everyday.

Activity 1

To compile a list of different kinds of transport [lo 2.2, 3.2]

Compile a list of all the means of transport that you can think of, and indicate those that you make use of.

1.transport statistics

Consult the learners in your class/grade for the following investigation.

Activity 2

To classify information under headings [lo 1.2, 1.6]

Activity 3

To compile a graph [lo 1.7]

Compile a graph by using the above totals.

2.roads

To move people and goods successfully from one point to another, an extensive road network is needed. For busy routes roads should preferably have two or even three lanes, while single lane roads are suitable for light traffic in residential areas. Roads must be well maintained.

Activity 4

To answer questions about a road in your town [lo 2.1]

Identify one road in your town/city and answer the following questions about the road:

How wide and how long is the road?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Are there road markings on the road?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Which places does the road connect?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

What type of road is it (national, regional, local)?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Who uses the road?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

What is the name of the road?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Mainly what kinds of vehicles use the road?

…………………………………………………………………………………….

Who is responsible for the maintenance of this road?

………………………………………………………………………………………..

Activity 5

To draw your own road map [lo 1.5]

Identify an area around the road you identified in the previous activity and draw a simple road map of the area. Remember to include the names of streets and other important landmarks.

Assessment

Learning outcome 1: geographical enquiry

The learner will be able to use enquiry skills to investigate geographical and

environmental concepts and processes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

1.2 organises information under given headings;

1.6 uses information from sources (including own observations) to answer questions about people and places (e.g. “Why is it like that?”).

Learning outcome 2: geographical knowledge and understanding

The learner will be able to demonstrate geographical and environmental knowledge and understanding.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

  • describes the features of the local settlement, including land uses, and compares them with examples from other places;
  • describes the importance of access to resources and services for people living in settlements.

Learning outcome 3: exploring issues

The learner will be able to make informed decisions about social and environmental issues and problems.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

3.2 identifies the factors that influence why some people have better access to resources compared to others in a particular context.
