Turning on to geography

Where am I??  

Turning on to 2014 geography lessons

Welcome to the 2014 teaching year. One of our first tasks with a class is to turn them on to geography and all that it encompasses.  Here are just a few of the great video resources on-line that may have a place in your first few lessons of motivation and stimulation! As the Australian Curriculum: Geography states as its first aim is to ensure that students develop:
  • a sense of wonder, curiosity and respect about places, people, cultures and environments throughout the world
Hard not to develop that sense of wonder and curiosity after watching these videos. It is also worth having another look at the Spatialworlds blogpost from 2012 titled: The WOW factor of geography: WOW = World of Wonder!
