Classroom Ideas

Before showing the clip, ensure the children understand where the Alps are and what distance they cover. Show them what 1m looks like and compare with how tall some of these mountains are. Write a brochure showing the attractions and fun you can have there and reassure the readers of the steps that have taken place to ensure there are no avalanches. Why is there less pollution there? Do they get a lot of tourists? What does the word alp mean?
