See how the Activity Packs can support/enhance the Primary Geography Curriculum.
Mountains and Rivers
The Animation Activity Pack includes tutorials for pupils on how to use Powerpoint or Keynote to create animations that describe processes. The video above is a water cycle example but could be adapted to re-create any process.
The first few tasks of the Kodu Activity Pack could be used to build a river basin and mountain range using the various tools. The Kodu River Race Pupil Activity Pack is particularly good for this.
The Augmented Reality Pack demonstrates how AR could be used to create interactive river basins and bring visual content into the context of your classroom.

The Scratch Maps Activity teaches pupils to program an interactive map with facts about a particular location.
The 3D Design Activity Pack could be use by pupils to re-create the location being studied (if it is a town or village) and one of the projects in the Digital Art Pack is a city landscape which could be applied if studying a famous city such as London. If your school uses Minecraft then pupils could use the Minecraft Activity Pack to re-create buildings/places.
