The only grades I would use this video in would be 5 and 6. This is because it uses some higher level language that younger students may not understand (I'd most likely play it more than once so we can pick apart the information together as a class). I like this resource because it gives a quick overview of what we as a country consider to be an important use of water. This video could be used as inspiration for an inquiry task, or it could be used to begin lessons about our own smart water usage - i.e. discussions about how much 13 gigalitres is and how it was used by industry and households alone in 2010/11.

Google previously released other games, including Santa Maps Dive and Spell Up. For its part, Smarty Pins is similar to a game called GeoGuessr, which challenges players to identify a photo by clicking its location on Google Maps.

I really liked this map because it's easy to read and is interactive. This would work really well on the SmartBoard because it's easily accessible for both the students and teacher. This resource could be adapted into a lesson where the students must choose either a red or burgundy country and complete a research project on why these countries have such high levels of hunger. You could also do group presentations on their findings so the whole class gets an overall view of developing countries. The great thing about this map is that it's very basic and can be used in younger grade levels without adjustment.
