Talking Geography at Trinity College

I had the pleasure yesterday to talk to primary teachers at Trinity College.  Here is the PowerPoint from the afternoon.  As always, so good to get a group of primary teachers thinking about geography in general and the Australian Curriculum: Geography in particular. It was great to catch up with some old students, Chris and Natalie (in fact they are not old, I am!)
