Module 16

What is meant by services?

Services

Services have to be rendered to the hundreds of thousands of people who live in your town, suburb or city. In the previous learning unit you read that planning is necessary for these services. In this learning unit you are going to learn a little more about certain services.

Activity 1

To identify the services that are rendered in your town/city [lo 2.1, 2.3]

Here is a list of services that must be available to inhabitants of a city or a very large town. mark those services that are rendered in your town or city.

Are there services that a large city can do without?

Have a class or group discussion on the services (see Activity 1) that are normally rendered to communities. Write down THREE of these that are unnecessary as far as you are concerned.

1. …………………………………………………………………………………

2. …………………………………………………………………………………

3. …………………………………………………………………………………

Assessment

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:

2.1 describes the features of the local settlement, including land uses, and compares them with examples from other places;

  • describes how basic human needs were met in the past and at present.

Memorandum

  • Opportunity to get a qualification
  • Cheaper (more affordable)
