Something for more senior students at the end of last lesson on a Friday or as an end of term activity?? Not as straight forward as you'd think as the cities used are not the obvious ones like New York, Paris etc.

Why is Geo-literacy Important?

Geographic content, spatial analysis and decision-making skills are vital and this video succinctly explains it's important within our educational system.  I know, I'm preaching to the choir, but please share this video to promote geo-literacy.

"Whenever I am living abroad, people always say the same thing, insisting that I am très Américain. Sometimes it's the words I use, or the way I talk.  But back in America, a strange thing happens. People say I have a British accent; they insist I have a European quality."

I find this interesting as the number story for Cincinnati, Ohio is how Cincinnati isn't as inclusive as it should be despite their hospitality and "niceness". http://cin.ci/1ek8LvX As someone that has traveled and also grew up near Cincinnati. I understand the difficulty in approaching new groups.

We all love sidewalk cafes but I like them best when they are not next to busy or crowded streets with lots of fuming cars.   In Europe the best sidewalk cafes are in pedestrian squares and the worst on on busy streets.
