The Amazing Americas - Lesson 2 Location, location

 

Click through the powerpoint slides. If you need a reminder of what longitude and latitude are, click on the link in the powerpoint, which will take you to the BBC Bitesize website. Have a go at the vocabulary word-search in the resources section, then try the activity sheet. You'll probably need to use an atlas or GoogleMaps to help you.

Choose your own level:

⭐ Find key facts about the climate zones of a North American and a South American city

⭐⭐⭐ Find key facts about the climate zones of any 3 North or South American cities

 

Fancy something different?

Compare it: Use the information you have collected about these cities and compare them with Helmdon/Brackley. How are they similar? How are they different?

Paint it: Find an online image of one of the places you have researched. Can you recreate it with paints? If you don’t have any paint, try a digital painting programme, such as MS Paint.

The Amazing Americas - Lesson 1 Continents, Countries & Cities

 

Click through the powerpoint slides and then have a go at labelling the maps of North and South America on the resource sheet. You'll probably need to use an atlas or GoogleMaps to help you.

Choose your own level:

⭐ Label the selected 5 countries and their capital cities

⭐⭐ Label the selected 10 countries and their capital cities

⭐⭐⭐ Label any 10 countries and their capital cities

 

Fancy something different?

Discover it: Find out about the explorers who mapped the Americas. Map their journeys and find out about the places they came from and their expeditions to the New World. Can you spot any links between where they came from and the places they discovered?

Research it: The 50 states of the USA each have their own specific flag or emblem. Some even have their own state bird, tree or flower! Choose a state and create a fact file about each state.

Design it: The flag for the USA represents the 13 British colonies that became the first states of the USA (13 red & white stripes) and the 50 states it contains today (50 white stars on a blue background). Can you design a flag that represents our class or school? Think of the important statistics or numbers - number of teachers, number of classes etc.
