An Action Plan for Geography Project

On these pages you will find material created by teachers which builds on the excellent resources and ideas in the Primary Geography Handbook - a must have book for all subject leaders and teachers from Foundation to Key Stage Two.

Each section contains ideas and examples for different age groups. The 'Maps and Stories' resources are all available on this website whereas 'Fieldwork' and 'Distant Places' were hosted on the Geography Teaching Today website which closed on November 2011. They will be added here soon.
