Clone towns – a Teachit resource

Clone towns

What are clone towns and why do they exist? Photo © Teachit.



The GA have formed a working partnership with Teachit, a thriving community of over 480,000 teachers sharing resources and finding inspiration. We are delighted to provide this as part of a range of resources and activity materials for use across key stages 3-5. Each resource consists of teacher notes and activity sheets, which you can download in either Word or PDF format, as well as a PowerPoint presentation that you can use in class. The resources cover a variety of topics and themes, all of which fall within the current National Curriculum, GCSE and A level curricula.

The focus for this activity is the globalisation of place, and the idea that globalisation and other external factors have made the concept of ‘place’ less important.
