Amazing Atlas Adventures
This week we began our new International Primary Curriculum Topic: Adventurers and Explorers.
We built upon our country of origin work from Black History Week by identifying which different countries around the world we have also visited.
After reminding ourselves how atlases are used to locate different geographical locations, we worked in groups to find the countries which we know about. We used our maths knowledge when identifying which countries are the most visited by all of us.
We moved onto transferring the information in the atlases onto an outline of a world map. This was tricky as we needed to keep referring back to the maps to ensure that we were being accurate. So that our information was clear and our maps can be read by different people, we created a key so that we could label them correctly. Below are some examples of our maps showing all of the information which was gathered by some of us.
This learning will be extremely useful next week when we move onto locating geographical features within an area and when creating our own flat maps using globes!
