Where's Dr X? Developing a sense of location within Asia

drxWhere’s Dr.X? – inspired by the old Carmen Sandiego games – aims to help students practice and apply some of their knowledge of the locations of cities and countries around Asia, as well as some of their more general knowledge too. It is designed to be achieved in a relatively short period of time, but creative teachers should have little trouble extending it as necessary.
