Summary We all need a place to call home, but in Cape Town there are many people who don’t have adequate housing. In this activity learners will work in groups to develop a short play on the issue of homelessness in the City and their suggested solutions.

Today, most wildlife survives in protected natural areas and on large

farms. In cities, even very small wild animals, such as small buck, birds, frogs and tortoises, are threatened because their homes are being destroyed. These small animals have no voice and no vote - their lives are in our hands. In this activity the learner will design an artwork to draw attention to the plight of urban wildlife.

In many parts of Cape Town, nature is threatened because people have no idea how important wild places, plants and animals are. In this activity learners design and produce a media product to convince people that nature is valuable and should be protected.

Summary We rely on nature for food, clean water, building materials, fuel, clothing and medicine. Many people also enjoy learning about nature and the recreational opportunities nature provides. Should we allow the last remaining natural areas in our city to be destroyed by urban development? Do people who value these areas have a right to insist that they are protected and wisely managed? This role-play explores reasons why people value nature and want to conserve it.

Stories do not have to be written using words … they can be painted using pictures. When we read stories, we try to understand and interpret the words of the author. Photographs are a form of “visual text” that people use to tell stories and express their feelings. In this activity, the learners will interpret photographs of our environment by looking at them from different perspectives.

Most print and electronic media have journalists who specialise in reporting on environmental stories. In this activity, learners will read

and analyse a variety of print media articles on a range of environmental topics and issues. They will then work together as a class to write local stories for an environmental newsletter.
