The Mapping Our World website was set up by Oxfam to educate children about mapping and globe projections. This is required material in the Geography curriculum for 5th and 6th classes, falling under the Maps, globes and graphical skills unit in the Skills and Concepts Development strand. The site is made up of 3 seperate lessons, each of which has around 40 minutes of material including videos and interactive activities. Teacher notes are supplied for each of the lessons, making using the website foolproof. I really like this website and the children do too. The site has won a Geographical Association Gold award and a BAFTA award for primary learning so they must be doing something right.
