Christmas Ideas

Yeterday at the Suffolk conference, talked about the use of CHRISTMAS as a context for some geography work. In terms of
I recognise that not all faiths are represented in a unit like this: "winterval" anyone ?

Mark Cowan has kindly made available another one of his poems.

Looking back over previous work, there are some links on my GEOGRAPHYPAGES website, including an old BLOG POST.

I also had quite a Christmas theme to my PEOPLE AS CONSUMERS unit on my PILOT GCSE blog: here are all the POSTS LABELLED CHRISTMAS.

What else is there ?

Emma Johns produced some work on using the huge AMAZON distribution warehouse near Milton Keynes as a context. Location of these warehouses is crucial. Good use of GIS as well in terms of routing of lorries for deliveries, and co-ordination of distribution network. I pass the Wilkinsons and
There's a big John Lewis warehouse on the way up to Hull as well on the M18

Helen Nurton produced an excellent CHRISTMAS TREE: real or artificial activity and a Christmas mind map, both of which are still available from 4SHARED HERE. They have both been downloaded almost 300 times, and I certainly made use of them last Christmas...

Tony Cassidy did a European Tour for Santa where he popped up in lots of locations.

Val Vannet produced a massive ADVENT CALENDAR quiz with a question behind each window.

Mary Cooch has made some very nice games on her GAMES4GEOG site (scroll down to the bottom of the page for the Christmas games)

Paula Richardson produced a set of resources on a CHRISTMAS THEME, which are still available on the GA WEBSITE.

On Christmas Eve each year, NORAD track Santa, and you can follow his progress on Google Earth.

Globalisation and interdependence: connections with China, and the BBC BOX.

Research Christmas presents and their global connections e.g. iPods, Barbies (some multicultural ones)

A trip to Christmas Island ?

Don't forget to recycle your Christmas cards.
Why not do a HOUSEBLINGERS homework - is the credit crunch and rising energy prices going to mean less of this sort of thing ?

Remember, a scheme of work is for life, not just for Christmas...
