Further ideas

The QCA Innovating with Geography site contains bright ideas and more developed activities, which can be adapted for investigations of St Lucia at key stage 2.

Other ways of producing and labelling sketches can be found via the Worldwise pages.

Other ideas for developing activities can be found on the Global Dimension pages. The activities are aimed at key stage 3 students, but could be adapted for use at key stage 2.

Look Windwards is a brand new online resource for geography teachers, produced in conjunction with Windward Bananas and launched at the 2006 GA Conference. The cross-phase resource focuses on the Windward Isles as a global place and looks at many topics including Fairtrade, Banana growing and Tourism.

Programmes of study, etc

Details of other St Lucia resources produced by the Geographical Association can be found in the Primary Listing on the GeographyShop.
