My daughter came bouncing home today waving a map she'd just been given at school.
It is part of the Ordnance Survey initiative to provide 1:25 000 maps to year 7 pupils across the UK. My daughter is delighted with her "very own map" and poured over it spotting routes she knows and places she visits. She also spent a while on the OS Mapzone area which is full of geo related games. I might have a try later . My daughter has popped out to see friends and taken her treasure with her to show them. I love enthusiasm like this!
And to think my other daughter doesn't rate geography very highly yet. I'll have to work on that!
