Making it Relevant

This week’s teaching tip enables you to personalise the mapping of various events, to a place of your choice. For example, if you want to see how big the moon is compared to where the school is located, or if you are interested in what the blast radius of a WW2 bomb would have been, then you can do this easily on this website at www.howbigreally.com .

Sometimes it’s hard to get ideas into perspective, so this is the perfect site to help you.

This could be the start of a cross curricular project…….If the Gulf oil spill took £x to clear up per square Km, how much would it cost in total? Etc.
