This longshore drift mystery by @geog_brown looks great!
So excited to try out this Longshore Drift mystery lesson with Year 7s! I got the inspiration from a free TES resource. They have to figure out how a message in a bottle moved from one place to another. 🌊 #pgce #geographyteacher #geography pic.twitter.com/olejR1cZmm

Nice, straightforward example of a knowledge organiser by @TweetcherT.
My first ever knowledge organiser from scratch. It’s far from perfect but what have I learned?
1. It’s MUCH easier making these from a blank page than it is editing someone else’s work.
2. Using @olicav‘s rules of “cut, chunk, align, restrain” makes for an overall better look. pic.twitter.com/94LWnfF7Ch

@clarry_s3 has created some questions to alongside the new BBC documentary 7 worlds one planet.
