Which City would you like to visit?



Categories: s1 and s2

I picked up a bargain in ASDA recently (was supposed to be buying bread and milk...), a book called '501 Must Visit Cities', reduced from 25 quid to 6. It got me thinking about a homework task for the present s1 rotation. If you could visit any city in the world, where would you go?

I want students to map the results on Google Earth, and create a placemark with a reason why you'd like to go there. I think this is a great way to improve knowledge of place, and something which can be done very simply too. We could then save the file as a kmz, and who knows, maybe record the PC screen and stick it on the school plasmas?

I'm liking the look of Ljubljana, Olomouc and Vancouver.I would be interested to see other responses to this too, feel free to leave a comment.

I would highly recommend Vancouver - fantastic city to visit- especially if you link it in with a trip to the Rockies too.
