Geography revision clips and internet sites
A good way to revise is to watch some short clips to deepen your understanding of the topics covered. Many of these clips explore ideas we have covered but you need to adapt them so that they link with the Andes and the Sahara. The 2 Uganda clips provide some kind of background.
Search the clips to see what you can find, are there any useful clips that you think we should add?
