Just finished Antarctica - apparently the whole continent is boring and there is nothing interesting about it in the slightest. Why would anyone want to study anything about it ever. I did point out that a whole continent could not be boring and that there is a volcano that comes up from ice which they admitted is pretty cool and then got back to how boring just finding out about penguins is. One other issue is they hate not being spoon fed, we did a decision making exercise and I was told 3 times I was a rubbish teacher when I would not tell them the answer to the question - apparently telling them where to find the information to make a decision and how to structure the answer is not good enough.
I do wish I had seen the RGS competition before I started though
Supervolcanoes might be interesting though, plus can watch the film in the lessons when half the class in is France, thank you.
