Maps on the web. Nice tool for comparing relative sizes of countries, historical changes etc. Just been studying the overlay of France onto the UK and realised that my drive from Toulouse to Calais is like driving from Barnstable to Thurso ..... then I still have the UK leg to go to North Wales!!   :o

Teaching Gender Inequalities? This series looks really promising. Fits in very well with the Gender Inequalities section of the core unit of IB Geography.
