Published by the Geographical Association in 2008, this popular title in the KS3 Geography Teachers' Toolkit series offers a flexible and adaptable interpretation of the Key Stage 3 geography curriculum. Students will be highly engaged by:

  • Geographical data interpretation for their local environment, connected to the London Olympic and Paralympic Games
  • A diverse range of map skills with the opportunity to use GIS for map-making
  • An Olympic Park photograph enquiry
  • The use of stakeholders' real opinions

Social and emotional aspects of learning play a critical role in the activities and AfL strategies enhance the progression of the learning.
