Powerful Primary Geography: A Toolkit for 21st-Century Learning explores the need for children to understand the modern world and their place in it. Dedicated to helping teachers inspire children's love of place, nature and geographical adventures through facilitating children's voice and developing their agency, this book explores the way playful opportunities can be created for children to learn how to think geographically, to solve real-life problems and to apply their learning in meaningful ways to the world around them.
Based on the very latest research, Powerful Primary Geography helps children understand change, conflict and contemporary issues influencing their current and future lives and covers topics such as:
* Weather and climate change
* Engaging in their local and global community
* Graphicacy, map work and visual literacy
* Understanding geography through the arts.
Including several case studies from primary schools in Ireland, this book will help aid teachers, student teachers and education enthusiasts in preparing children for dealing with the complex nature of our contemporary world through artistic and thoughtful geography. Facilitating children's engagement as local, national and global citizens ensures geography can be taught in a powerful and meaningful manner.
