I guess it depends on what age they are and what they're in to.

I try and ask kids in Year 7 what they'd like to learn (in IT/Computing these days). That's helped me build in different things that aren't in the traditional scheme for example.

If I had to pick something different it would probably involve a GPS device of some kind - a phone would be fine. Maybe. Or maybe using something like AppInventor to make something cool (http://appinventor.mit.edu/explore/). But I like geeky things - they might not.

The obvious would be to get them to enter the national competitions - Young Geographer of the Year - RGS and there is another from Discover - something like outstanding geographer. Also Worldwise quiz if that is available in your area.

Our head has asked each department to offer a competition to students.
Anyone any good examples of what has worked well?
Thanks

With such a small group, try and arrange the timing so it's at the end of the day and take them out somewhere, close to the school and do some data collection...?
