Jelly Babies


Categories: Population, s1 and s2
I have told my s3 that we are playing the jelly babies game today, for which we will need the game cards . Full details here at Geointeractive. I played this last year with the current s4, and have to say that it was one of the most enjoyable lessons of the session, subsequent dental bills aside :-) Very effective introduction to Population Change. I also have yet to involve s3 in my food miles project survey, where some s2 groups are ready to commit information to the wiki page, while two groups have already added some stats, which will no doubt change. The world map is just about ready, and I think tomorrow, we will be able to start building our display. Quite by accident, as I was looking for something else, I found this page on Food Miles from the GeographyPages site, which might be useful to help build the mini topic. Assessment for the previous topic, Earth Forces will be either Monday or Wednesday. My second s1 assessment is tomorrow, while the group who sat their assessment last day are beginning the Brazil topic. I'm going to try a little music again for this for a little brainstorming exercise. Think that's it...better get some sleep now for Thursday's onslaught...
