Mapwork Week Three
Make a country - following on from the last activity you can now construct your own country using your own legend and scale. Remember that there are familiar symbols used on maps to represent certain features as you will have seen in the previous PowerPoint. This should help you! Again consider where the features would be best located; their size in comparison to one another and distance apart i.e. mountain areas; river source and flowing to the sea; airports and connections to cities. Use Twinkl- geography - scale\maps as required.
Reading maps - first activity: pay close attention to the legend and map feature layout to answer relevant questions.
Week four: 27/04/2020
Mapwork: Reading Maps:
Activity one: Be familiar with the legend/key (symbols) on left hand side. Take time to find the various features. For example: where the road, lake and forest are located. Also think about ‘contours lines’ on a map. Closer together the lines are, the steeper the land. Click on the link below from BBC Bitesize. This will refer to a video and written explanation to help.
Activity two: Familiarity with symbols is again needed to help locate features and understand town layout. Be careful with how you read the questions! Think about traffic flow, number of shops, type of shops, etc.
