`Gold Award Winner! Geographical Association Publishers' Awards 2014. The judges found this publication to be dynamic and engaging, with lots of practical approaches for geography teaching in the classroom...Valuable for experienced and specialist teachers of geography with responsibility for leadership and implementation of geography... and useful for teachers of varying levels of expertise, including student teachers and those who lack the confidence to teach exciting geography lessons.'
This lively, thought-provoking edited collection is packed full of practical ideas for teachers looking to foster a creative primary classroom. But it will also make its readers reflect on how creativity and geography intersect in children's lives and why creativity is vital in sustaining all our futures.
