Clocks Have several clocks in your classroom, one showing local time and the others either showing places that you are teaching about, or capital cities etc. Themed names eg places associated with Christmas are fun too. Change the names every 2/3 weeks. Prizes can be given for naming the correct country or finding out where somewhere is located eg Sandwich Islands. IKEA has clocks for 1.75 ! Way to remember which

pole is which Antarctica is a bigger and heavier word and sinks to the bottom of the world while Arctic floats on top! Ways to remember the tropics The Tropic of Capricorn is in the southern hemisphere - remember: corns on

your feet. So the Tropic of Cancer is the one at the top! Geoguessr A guess the location game using google maps http://geoguessr.com/ Mapcrunch http://www.mapcrunch.com Similar to GeoGuessr which was added on the previous slide. This allows you to teleport students to a random place where they can use their

geographical imaginations to describe the place. However, if you click the 2 orange chevrons to the right, you'll reveal (or hide) a menu. Click the MyMap box, and zoom the Google map that appears to the place you are studying. From now on, pressing GO will take you to a place within that map area. If you tick the STEALTH option, the location of the place that is chosen is hidden. For example, choose a city, generate 10 places and identify where they are in relation to the CBD / suburbs etc.
