This is a great opportunity for genning up on your geography knowledge!
If you look at the progression of skills in the geography curriculum, they may at first seem quite daunting but looking at maps (or a globe if you have got one) is an exciting way of learning about the world around you. You could choose a country a day to look at. National Geographic is a great site to use for this (see link below).
Below are some great sites that we recommend. We hope these will give you some fun ideas for your geography learning.
