Year 10 Geography Homework - Favelas in Brazil

If you are in my (Mr Drake's) Year 10 GCSE Geography class, you have been looking at the issues that face people living in Rio and Sao Paulo in Brazil

Your task next, is to watch the video clips below and create a Factfile (one side of A4 - using text and images) outlining the following:

  • The main push and pull factors that lead to people living the countryside and head for the cities of Rio and Sao Paulo
  • An annotated image showing what the housing in the favelas like Rochinho in Rio is like
  • A description and explanation of the living conditions in the squatter settlements
  • Measures that have been taken by people individually and by decision makers as a whole, in order to improve the quality of life for the residents
