Find the opposite point on Earth - 83 views

  •  
    An interesting geography site which show what is on the opposite side of the Earth. For London it's just some fish and a lot of water. A nice way of selecting contrasting places to study. http://ictmagic.wikispaces.com/PSHE,+RE,+Citizenship,+Geography+&+Environmental

    It is interesting that very few places on earth don't have water on the exact opposite side of the planet (only bottom of South America/Coast of China, and Northern Canada/Antarctica)

Terra Clues - 4 views

  •  
    Really neat Google Maps scavenger hunt site. Students are provided clues to put into Google maps or Google search. They then have to zoom in, use the satellite map, etc, to find the clue. This would be great for history/social studies type classes, but I could also see it being used in biology during the evolution unit. Perhaps as a scavenger hunt of places Darwin visited during his voyage on the Beagle, for example.
