Lily and her amazing geographical knowledge.

Well - perhaps this is the answer to lack of global awareness of our pupils? Although I'm not sure that geographical knowledge will necessarily translate into global understanding, at least she can find her way around a world map and perhaps one day, visit all these places?
(Thanks to My Wonderful World Blog via Langwitches for blogging this clip first! )


What an amazing clip?! Is it geographical knowledge though? By that I mean surely this is the stage where children know the words for numbers but not the concept of number? Would this be the Geographical equivalent? I wish the BBC would report more clearly on where they get their reports, how the research is done, how representative it is etc.. before sweeping statements are made.
But then that simply wouldn't be journalism would it?
Thanks for this thought-provoking clip!
