Using Games in School Geography A new collection of games and simulations for your geography classroom to challenge and excite your students! This brand new collection offers a portfolio of tried and tested games and simulations. Each of the exercises can be applied to a particular National Curriculum strand of geography, covering Key Stages 2 to 5. They are designed to be interspersed among your curriculum teaching, represent a variety of styles and range from the simple to the complex. As well as enriching subject teaching they also encourage students to put themselves in the place of others, developing important social skills, empathy and critical thinking. The exercises in this new collection include operational games, role-plays and mathematical simulations. Simulations range from the exploration of development priorities on an island in the tropics to the issues underlying a local road-building project, and from the impact of large-scale ecological change to finding a good location for new settlement. Full materials and instructions for the use of each exercise are provided, along with a commentary for teachers. This new collection will enable you to: * encourage enthusiastic participation in your geography classroom * improve performance using games, which have been proven to be effective teaching and learning tools * contribute to students' social and emotional aspects of learning, developing skills of empathy, decision making and critical thinking that they can use across the curriculum and throughout their lives * add to your own range of teaching strategies, particularly those which encourage interaction with students, and develop your own games and simulations
