Clampin's Mystery -
Why is make-up threatening tigers in India?
This is a geographical mystery I have created from an
article in The Observer from about 6 weeks ago. I am intending
to use it in our Year 7 scheme of work on India, but it could
also be used as an "Environmental Issue". Basically mining for
soapstone - which is used in cosmetics - is being carried out
illegally in an India wildlife reserve, thereby threatening the
habitat of the tigers. Teachers can prepare the cards from the
templates attached. Students need to work out the most relevant
facts and solve the mystery. Teacher notes also included in
were sent to us by Daniel Greenfield
