Hi,

I have to run a 15 minute session as part of an interview for a pgce course. The session is with a key stage 2 class with the theme of the commonwealth games, it must have a geography angle. Could anyone please make any suggestions?

Thanks,

Emma

Pick a Commonwealth country. Preferably a small one without many resources (a Pacific or Caribbean island nation for example). Why is it more difficult for that country to send a team to the Games than Wales?

Make a big map, cut out photos with descriptions of things from those countries (may include musical instruments, traditions, attractions etc, such as the Eiffel Tower for France and so on) and invite the children to raise their hands to say what the item is, and to come and stick it on the map of where it is from.

If they don't know, you still have the chance to explain and they will learn this way.

EDIT: I know France isn't in the Commonwealth, lol, it was just an example of what I meant. I couldn't think of any examples for Commonwealth countries but, being educated in Geography, I'm sure you're better than me!

I don't remember France being in the Commonwealth, but it's still a good idea.

I couldn't think of an example haha it's just to show what I meant but obviously for the applicable countries - well known attractions.
