Key Stage 3 and 4 Healthy Cities resource

Explore what makes towns and cities ‘healthy’ before re-designing your own neighbourhood in this DT, Science and Geography project.

Discover our resources for KS3-4 students to explore climate change and the built environment.

In this project pack, you will find:

  • some key information for teachers to help deliver learning activities focusing on creating environmentally friendly and ‘healthy’ towns and cities
  • creative activities for young people to complete that will help them to learn about environmentally friendly and ‘healthy’ towns and cities

This resource focuses on the DT, Science and Geography curriculum for key stages three and four.

Lessons can be condensed or expanded if you have more or less time. Extension activities are included.

We offer a free national schools programme for all key stages. Explore climate change and the built environment in school with professional architects through creative and practical workshops. Register your school to take part.
