Colour in the Earth
This resource provides activities that link in which geography at primary level, using images of cities and Islands around the World taken from Space. These images taken by Tim Peake, support children in recognising human and natural features from an aerial view. They develop their understanding of maps and keys/legends using simplified line drawings created from Tim’s photos. Several of the features emphasised in each drawing are listed so children can create a key, effectively beginning the process of changing the photograph into a map. It also includes a series of four images of the British Isles in different seasons, allowing children to opportunity to identify which season they think it might show and say why they think this.
Included in the pack is a PowerPoint presentation, children’s worksheets and a teacher guide to support the running of the activities in class.
