1a) Population thinking hats- frame

This lesson uses De Bono’s thinking hats to look at where people have settled and why. Pupils use different thinking hats on the thinking hat frame whilst looking at different images around the world (thinking hats images). They then use the thinking hat worksheet to decide which the most desirable places to live are. There is also a presentation to use with the class as you go along and a black and white friendly version of the thinking hats frame if you can’t print in colour. This is the frame for use with the lesson.
