Geography topic teaching help please

Discussion in 'Geography' started by callum97, Jul 3, 2012.

  1. I teach year 6 and need a geography theme for my next topic teaching. Does anyone have a good country or theme which is geography based and they know it is successful? I need to link in the foundation subjects and some of the core. Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated :)

  3. When is the new topic happening? If it's now or September, what about something on the Olympics - there's plenty of mileage in this yet!
    If you get stuck, give me a shout - I've just done a Y7 sow on the 2012 games....
     
  4. Good countries to do are China/India/USA/Brazil - all big countries with human and physical features and interesting cultures.

    Alternatively - the 7 wonders of the world could be a good one for year 6's, I've done it with year 7's and they loved it.

    Personally, I wouldn't do the Olympics, I think its been done to death in schools in the build up and its not like they won't see it everywhere over the next few weeks anyway - Hope this helps!

    Hey running_wild! You mentioned India as a good country for geography - I'm teaching a themed unit on India that should incorporate Science (habitats) and D+T, but I am really struggling with generating ideas. I just wondered if you had experience with India or you had any suggestions for where to look for ideas?

    One of the main things we are struggling with is a launch idea (a hook to get the children interested in the topic)

    I would really appreciate some ideas to get me started on where to look!

    Many thanks!
