We have just started doing a topic on oceans. We couldn't believe our luck when we stumbled upon (or rather almost walked past) 2 basking sharks, a mum and baby, gorgeous. Can you beleive I didn't have my camera, I usually take it everywhere.
My son is 9.5yo and loves the animal side of the project but when I tried to read from horrible geography's Odious Oceans book, his eyes rolled heavenward.
Do you know of any geography sites, perhaps with on-line games. We did (grudgingly on his part) the ones on the BBC site and he actually quite enjoyed it.
Hi Susan Thanks for the message - I am delighted that you are enjoying the site.
I got the same reaction to the Horrible Geography books! But seeing basking sharks must have been fabulous.
The only game I could really come up with was the Jewel of Muscat game where you navigate a ship around the oceans. It is a pretty hard game, but quite realistic in terms of oceans and weather conditions.
I did find some other stuff though that I thought you might like to try:
Oh my goodness! I am a home schooling mum of 4 and I have NEVER found a better site! Thank you so much.
