Map reading skills are a vital part of the KS3 and CE geography syllabus and are also a great life skill. However, learning about maps in the classroom can be a rather ‘dry’ experience, but not any longer!
Oaka have teamed up with Ordnance Survey to produce Geogo!, the map skills game that combines map reading skills with geography knowledge in a fun, competitive game.

Simon is a keen advocate of kinaesthetic learning, (especially games) and strongly supports engaging with our environments and bringing the real world into the classroom.
Geogo! brings map extracts to life in this board game for up to 4 players (8 if working in pairs) racing to win knowledge skill jigsaw pieces before making the charge back to OS headquarters to win the game!

Including four different map extracts (Liverpool, Hereford, Mumbles and Aviemore), Geogo! gives players the chance to use 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 maps covering urban, rural, coastal and mountainous terrain.
There are 240 questions (60 questions for each map) covering:
