This is a Mystery course which makes heavy use of Conditional activities to gradually reveal the answer to the mystery (What are we learning today?) and move forward the learning. If you access this as a student you will only see one item and the others will reveal themselves as you go along. If you access it as a teacher, check out the teacher's instructions in topic 5 (hidden from students)
This is a course for students aged around 8 - 10 years old. It serves as an introduction to Google Earth/Google Maps and deals with the Geography of Place. Conditional activities are set so that once the students have watched the video and click the tick, all the activities will then appear. It was originally used in Our Lady's High School Preston by Mary Cooch.
