Week 3: Google Geography!

Welcome to your theme for the week beginning 6/4/20:

 

Google Geography!

 

This topic is all about using your geography skills in conjunction with your computer skills. You need access to Google Earth (There is a tutorial below to show you how to use it). 

 

Here are some ideas you may want to try: 

  • Aerial alphabetics (See the photo underneath for more details).
  • Have a go at this KS2 Geography Booklet. 
  • On this website there are lots of Geography games to challenge you, do you know what an archipelago is?!
  • Choose a starting place (maybe your home) and choose a place in the UK you would like to visit. Can you map your journey? How could you choose different modes of transport? You could put this plan onto a poster/powerpoint/ word document.
  • Can you choose a geographical feature (maybe mountains, volcanoes, rivers etc) and research it? You could present this via a teaching video (I would love to see this smiley), powerpoint, poster etc. 
  • Visit BBC Bitesize website and watch a variety of their educational videos! 

 

You can email me on Year6teacher@barrowby.lincs.sch.uk and I will reply when I can! 

 

Remember, I will also update maths, English, spelling sections on the website weekly- so keep your eyes peeled. 

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Google Earth

Still image for this video
Here is a video I've made to show you how to use Google Earth. It works best if you use Google Chrome as your browser. Here I looked at Barrowby and found a field that was shaped like a 'D' for the Aerial Alphabetics below :) Feel free to email me if you have any issues!

Aerial Alphabetics

I have used Google Earth to find naturally occurring features in the UK, that are in the shape of letters! Can you spell your name doing this? Could you find different versions of letters from me?
