We have now added a set of exams for each year level for your school exams later this term. Geography 1.1 and 1.2; 2.1 and 2.3; and 3.1 and 3.2.
Look for these under the Exams menu tab.
Thanks so much to the writers of these exams and to the moderator of the exams.
I know that I will be using these for our mock exams. 🙂
The Board of Geography teachers have put together an interesting set of resources for you to use in your classes in Geography Awareness Week. Click here for ideas
What else might you do?
We will be having cakes decorated like a representation of natural features and we are looking at migration in China so we are having a Chinese takeaway lunch. Will also have a quiz for the teachers.
Have fun out there with your students!
