Developing Mapping Skills

Lesson: Geography

Class: Year 1 Year: 2018 - 2019

Our visit to the park provided us with the opportunity to develop some mapping skills. Before we went on our visit, we had looked at aerial photos of the area and zoomed in on Google Earth. At the park, we matched different objects to the birds eye photos that we had and took photos of the different areas.

On our return to school, we started to make a whole class 3D map of the park as well as drawing our own maps.

We are going to develop this further by making another map with a key and talking about points of the compass.
