  2. Hi there,
    I remember my class last year really enjoying going on Google Maps and locating various places. We got to see each others houses and how far they each lived from the school. The children can use Google maps to see what buildings are old and new. By oldI mean more than 100 years old. You can then look at old maps and make comparisons with the Google maps. Some ideas there. As you know (from previous post) I am doing 'buildings' with my class in January.

    Was it bombed? Before and after WW2 would be an interesting comparison, perhaps you had a lot of post-war housing and 1960s flats. Sorry my idea doesn't transplant so well into the truly urban.
