A few people have mentioned my Toolkit book and the Landscape in a Box idea in the last few days...
Paul Berry from Devon mentioned it in a very nice blog post where he also expanded on it by bringing in a few other ideas that have also featured on these pages: Rory's Story Cubes and the use of tiny figures. At Glastonbury in 2010 when working with the Geography Collective, we played 'mini hide and seek' with tiny figures around the Children's field that we were working in, to play around with ideas of scale.

Noel Jenkins has also posted another response to using Landscape in a Box, along with some soundscapes.
