LKS2 have begun their new Geography topic, all about the USA.
We jumped in with some map work, both digital and paper-based, and located the USA in relation to the continents of the World, the Equator, the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn and the Prime Meridian line.
We then found out the difference between Physical Geography and Human Geography and went on to identify features of both using physical and political maps. We located some key Physical Geography features and annotated our working wall.
Finally we used Minecraft to introduce ourselves to biomes and located different biomes in the USA and used our map work to find out where the same biomes exist elsewhere in the world.
It’s been a busy week!
