I really enjoyed this video because it was entertaining and informative at the same time. So many videos try to pack in information but they are unable to keep you excited about the video to where you stay energetic. This video helped a lot in keeping me energetic and ready to learn about what they had to say.

This song was actually really entertaining, catchy, and knowledgeable. If all lessons were taught like this, I would have an easier time in school. Music is fun.

This is a nice way to get people's attention and especially kids in school. If you listen to the words he is saying and the statements he's making they are actually very interesting and knowledgeable. I think if school was this interesting everyone would listen a little more then they do now.

The geography of my stuff

The geography of my stuff | Geography year 8 ws | Scoop.it

This unit of work focuses upon the interconnections and inter-relationships that link teenage consumers living in the UK with societies and environments overseas (where the goods they purchase are made). As well as explaining how these connections work - and why they have come into being - the unit introduces students for the first time to some of the moral, ethical and environmental issues that are associated with the global trade in consumer goods (including child labour and food miles).

Plenty of hands-on examples and case studies are provided that will help teachers deliver these themes in an accessible and interactive way. Students will gain a first impression of some key ideas relating to retail land use from convenience stores to retail parks.

Looks terrific for the new National Curriculum 'Geographies of Interconnections' for Yr 9.
