Biosphere, General revision and World Cup Geography

Starting Biosphere today with Higher, and here is the best link
http://www.school-portal.co.uk/GroupRenderCustomPage.asp?GroupID=12426&ResourceId=96848

This comes from the excellent website for Wycombe High School. Some parts of this are only accessible if you are a school member, but several of the links and animations can be used at home. Try it out http://www.school-portal.co.uk/GroupHomepage.asp?GroupID=23107

I have also finished doing a wee World Cup Geography Exercise, which I am trialling with Int2 today. It has links to Population, settlement site, Urban Land Use Zones and Development. There is a google tour with links to information and images of each of the stadiums. The google tour has a couple of glitches-Places like Leipzig and Kaiserslautern are just red blobs up close, and I had to navigate the roads to find the stadium site. This is why I have included the links. I have this on disc, and, again, if anyone wants a copy of the tour, accompanying powerpoint, worksheet (or perhaps just the tour) then feel free to take a copy.
