In addition to the Geography tools within the software, RM has also put together a suite of Geography resources that are available for purchase as a separate Content pack. These resources include:
The content is focused on aspects of the geography curriculum that are harder to teach or harder for pupils to visualise and understand.
Examples of the simulations are formation of coastal features, village settlers and investigating rivers. The whole-class teaching activities are spread across the full range of Primary levels - from going to the seaside to improving the environment, from around your school to a locality in India. The video clips include the world's driest, wettest, hottest, coldest and windiest places, waste and water, rivers and Romans - a fantastic resource covering many subjects, most of which include audio commentary. Many of the videos have been provided by Channel 4.
All the materials work within the Easiteach environment and can be annotated, adapted and extended by teachers. The simulations and video clips can all be controlled so that teachers can customise and use them at their own pace. All the materials also include full teaching notes, detailing curriculum references, objectives, activity overview and notes, and suggestions for further work.
