This essential skills and knowledge companion project revises the features of Earth, time zones and lines of latitude and longitude to pinpoint places on a map. Children find out more about map scales, grid references, contour lines and map symbols. They learn about climate change and the importance of global trade. Children analyse data and carry out fieldwork to find out about local road safety. They study patterns of human settlements and carry out an enquiry to describe local settlement patterns.
This project is part of the Cornerstones Curriculum which is available through an annual licence for Curriculum Maestro.
It is a companion project to the history project Maafa.
