TRY this – Rugby World Cup 2011

It all starts this weekend with the kick off for the Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand beginning with New Zealand vs Tonga on Friday night. Be prepared for late nights (or early mornings) and lots of yelling at the television!

We have created some exciting interactive activities using our popular Boardmaker and Clicker 5 software. You can use these fantastic resources to talk about the rugby in the classroom or at home. Chat about what’s going on with enthusiastic rugby followers or enlighten those that are learning what it all means!

  • A quiz about things you have learnt from these activities.
