Year 9 - Geogalot Abroad Research

The students in Year 9 have been working on their questioning techniques and to do this they were asked to devise a set of questions of which the answers would be used to devise a specific type of holiday. Students then were asked to research a destination that fit the answers and to then put a package together that would encourage their teacher to visit that country. Each group were required to justify why they had chosen specific activities for the holiday by looking at recommendations on different social media sites. Part of this activity was to make students aware of how much we are influenced by what we see and read. To record their findings each group used mindmesiter, which is an online mindmapping programme examples of which can be found below.
