A well-resourced professional association for geography based in the UK. The section for primary teachers offers practical and innovative ideas for developing geographical understanding in the primary classroom.

Would be particularly helpful in creating activities for year 7 geography classes

The Flipped Classroom model is changing the ways students learn and teachers teach. When you flip your classroom, you offer your students rich, engaging material to consider at home, and you use class time to help them interact with the ideas. Lecturing during class time is minimized and students have a teacher nearby when they are doing work and most likely to need guidance.

The key to "flipped" is to rethink who has control of content and learning. These are some great tactics to help move instruction toward more student-led learning.

Flipping the classroom is an ideal way to assist students who want to get ahead and be challenged while at home.

It's a great resource for CLILing a class.

There are many video resources to be found on this page that engage and inform students across a variety of topics. These would act as a great starting point to enable students to critique and begin investigating a particular topic and the needs it is meeting.
