This week in Geography we will be looking at field work. 


Today we are going to look at maps of different towns. Look at the slide show and look at the details you can see on the maps.

What are the maps showing us?

What do the symbols mean? 

Look at the slide with the key on the side and explain why this might be useful to people reading the map. 

What do you notice about the map? 

What does it show you?

What do the symbols show us? 

If possible take a walk around your local area and note what you see as you go. If not try to think of a familiar route or walk that you have done and discuss. 


Now draw your own map of your local area and try to include a key. What features do you think peple might need to know?
