Imaging the Earth

Combing satellite and ground-based imagery, this cross-curricular learning resource for primary teachers explores planet Earth from a range of perspectives.

The activities are intended to build map skills and recognition of many physical geography features in familiar and unfamiliar locations. Mathematics activities focused on scale and using coordinates sit alongside digital literacy tasks requiring analysis of web-based sources for research. Children will also learn about the important role played by satellites in disaster relief.

Permission to use the satellite images have been kindly granted by Airbus Defence & Space.
