8 Geography: Exam Revision Week 2013!

As we will only have one class left before the exam, each day I will be creating a new post to help you in your revision.

Today is the video of your group research tasks that you presented to the class and the list of topics that you researched.

I will also be uploading all your research keynotes you created for this video so the rest of the class can read over your notes.

Is there a topic you want me to cover on the blog before Friday? send me an email and I will post it on the blog!

Apologies for the audio on this video, it seems you guys don’t talk as loud as me (guess that is a good thing). I will be investing in an external microphone for future videos!
