Geography and ElectricityGeneral Electric: an American energy company have a nice site called GEOTERRA which is aimed at exploring ideas of renewable energy by providing a series of FLASH games on an island, which explores issues to do with energy conservation such as blasting air at windmills and steering trains around a route.

Geography and Chocolate
Certainly eaten a lot of it in the last 10 days or so...
Charlie and Lola are a favourite of my kids. Was just browsing Amazon for some sales bargains, and found this new book, which is due to be published in February 2007, when it will cost £2.99 - you can pre-order now. Could be a good resource to use as a prize for younger geography students. Why not order several copies at that price... The book is to raise funds for COMIC RELIEF. There is going to be a RED NOSE DAY on the of March 2007, and the site is already up. You can download a set of excellent Interactive Whiteboard resources: 5 FLASH files which would make great starters for a development topic lesson (click on "At School")
We still use the excellent PA PA PAA photo and DVD pack which was produced 2 years ago. Not sure if it still available. It takes you through FAIRTRADE and COCOA and has some very useful teaching resources to go along with it. It was only about £8 or so...Pa Pa Paa is the slogan of the Kuopa Kokoo, who supply the Co-Op with their FAIRTRADE chocolate.
The Co Op offer a schools pack, and you can send off for a free CD ROM.
We will be taking part in FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT... More to come later...
Don't forget there are more resources on the DUBBLE site. DUBBLE is a Fairtrade bar.

If you haven't already, buy a copy of "an inconvenient truth"

And finally, don't forget to tune in to Today on Radio 4 on New Years Day.
HAPPY NEW YEAR... Will be back on NYD with the yearly round up of GeographyPages stats...
