Morocco Curriculum Links
To help highlight where a Morocco trip complements the Geography curriculum we’ve created this easy-to-use checklist:
What factors affect the water level of the rivers and oases? How have farmers maximised the amount of water available for irrigation and domestic use? What other water management strategies are used in arid environments? Look for evidence of water erosion processes in the spectacular Todra Gorge, carved by the Dades River.
See a ‘Berber pharmacy’, where natural plant extracts are used to treat a variety of ailments. How do these treatments compare to those in the UK?
In the rural areas of Valley du Dades and Jebels Sarhro, how have people adapted to living in such a difficult landscape? Students can consider aspects of inequality and disparity between urban and rural living, and study water supply, irrigation and water management systems in a rural context.
