Term 4 – Geography Knowledge & Skills
Sometimes games can teach us exactly what we need to learn: world countries & capital cities, flags, mountains, rivers, landmarks, sports, world currency, biomes, as well as teaching: problem solving, comprehension and character profiling, am/pm time and more.
Thankfully the 1989 classic Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? is still available online to play. Good luck Detectives!
Learning about Local Government
Warrnambool Mayor Kylie Gaston came out to visit us at Woodford this week, to tell us about what the Warrnambool City Council does and answered a plethora of questions. Thanks for coming in and speaking to us!

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? (1989)
Can you think of an online activity that helps us learn all the following: countries, capital cities, national flags, historically significant items & events, national currencies, country exports/commodities, national landmarks, mountain ranges, rivers, country-specific animals, types of government/leaders, national sports…as well as problem solving, am/pm time and character profiling? No? Then I suggest you play the ms-dos version of 1989 Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? You’ll find it difficult not to learn something!
