Have You Been Where the Queen's Been?

In case you haven't heard, this year is Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. The BBC has a huge collection of resources about the Diamond Jubilee. One of those resources that I like is a feature called Have You Been Where the Queen's Been? Have You Been Where the Queen's Been is a map of all of the places that Queen Elizabeth II has visited during her reign. You can also view the places in a list format. Click on the map to check-off the places that you've been and compare your travels to that of the Queen.

Applications for Education
Have You Been Where the Queen's Been? could be used as part of geography lesson in which students research the places that the queen has visited. Students could investigate why the Queen was visiting each of those places and the significance of her visit.
