Description: An intriguing site which has split the whole world into 3 metre by 3 metre squares and assigned 3 words to label that coordinate, giving addresses to millions around the world who don’t have an official address, or making a meeting point more accuracy than a postcode. For educators, there are lots of geographic and literacy possibilities – geocaching with spelling, or writing short stories or descriptions about a real location including the words. The site can be viewed in many different European languages meaning there are MFL possibilities too.
