I was wondering where other than Hawaii, Gold Coast, Tanzania, Amazon where do people take their Geography and possibly History students for a social sciences field trip? Our department are looking at taking students aboard but may need to encompass some history as well? I was thinking the U.S.A with Tourism 3.2, 3.3 or 3.6 standards any suggestions? Cheer Steph.
The examiners reports for the 2012 exams are up on the NCEA site at last!!
