Are you eating, sleeping, drinking and teaching the World Cup? How does our consumption of the global game impact us and others around the world?
The FIFA World Cup 2006 has kicked off. Few will be able to ignore the multi-media coverage following the ‘beautiful’ game as it takes global centre stage for this month long football festival.
32 countries from around the globe will battle it out in 11 venues around Germany, Europe.
With tens of thousands of football fans travelling to Germany to watch matches and millions of others looking and listening in on TV, radio and the internet, the World Cup 2006, geographers are bound to contemplate the myriad interconnections between people, places and environments of such a global event.
These geography resources will support a range of curriculum learning for Key Stage 3 upwards. Using creative and enquiry based approaches these critical-thinking inspired resources should support independent and collective class learning of key geographical concepts, themes, understanding and skills as defined by the geography curriculum but also themes covered in (Key Stage 3 + 4) Modern Foreign Languages (German); History, PE, Citizenship, and at Key Stage 5+ in Economics, Travel and Tourism and Business Studies.
