This clip highlights the links between climate and leisure activities in a contrasting country to the UK. At relevant points within the clip pupils could be asked to consider what activities they could take part in if they visited Grenada such as cricket, sailing, canoeing, and picnics. It is useful to challenge the children to consider why and how the environment makes this possible - hot weather, sandy beach, warm waters. Following this discussion, pupils could design a poster for tourists which advertises a beach club. They should aim to offer a range of exciting activities for a variety of people. Pupils should be challenged to include persuasive words and reference the unique advantages the landscape and climate offers to visitors from the UK.
