Oxfam launched a brand new free website last week… Mapping our World helps pupils explore the difference between a map and a globe, and how different map projections affect our perceptions of the world.

Oxfam says: “Designed for whole class learning on an interactive whiteboard, this resource will transform pupils’ understanding of their place in the world and develop skills of enquiry and critical thinking. A host of colourful characters guide pupils through the activities, including Holey Moley, Bob the Pirate, and aliens from the Planet Famox making learning fun and teachers’ lives easier!

Mapping our World is supports the Geography curriculum (KS2/P3
upwards) and is also ideal for bringing a global approach to Citizenship, PSE and ICT studies. The resource suits all abilities and learning styles, and features nine structured activities and full teachers’ notes.”
