Useful Google Earth files site

http://www.gearthhacks.com/ this is excellent. Save yourself the time by using other people’s files. There’s old stuff on the Tsunami and the USGS Earthquake file on recent quakes is a very useful tool. and i found one that has all 92 football grounds in England. Though when i looked at Coventry it was Highfield road, their old ground (I think they left there about 10 years ago) and when you zoomed in it was a building site!

GCSE text book

anyone using the heinamann book by Ann Bowen and John Pallister “Understanding GCSE Geography”? I certainly like the way it is structured staightaround the key ideas from the syllabus, but i didnot buy theCD roms that were offered with it as they looked less useful. Also the free disk at the back of the book looks a little hard to navigate round. maybe the students will get on with it better
