...resources to enrich your teaching from Practical Action

Welcome to our geography teaching resources. Across all key stages the Geography curriculum teaches about those issues that we at Practical Action work with every day. These include the destructive force of the annual floods in Bangladesh, the spread of disease in urban areas and the practical problems faced by communities living in mountainous regions.
