Islands and the Coastal Environment.

This 2020 Summer Term 5, our learning journey theme is going to be - Islands and Coasts. We will be looking to create our own island environment- thinking about where in the World we would want our island to be? We will be designing a National flag, thinking about the rules and laws required to run a successful island. We will be looking at the new animal species that have been discovered there and then developing a tourism industry to aid the island economy.

Lesson Resources for   Week 1-  20th to the  24th April

Please open the  Anywhere Island  presentation Power Point. If you do not have Power Point you might like to use the word document with the slides on it below.

This week you will be working on Lesson 1-  ( slides 3-7. )

Whilst out exploring , you have come across an unihabited island, which you can now claim as your kingdom. Where in the world would you want your island to be?

Use atlases,globes or interactive maps on the internet to decide upon a position that you can mark with an 'X' on your  ISLAND DESIGN SHEET - (above ) in the resourses.

  • WHICH SEA OR OCEAN DOES YOUR ISLAND LAY IN ?
  • IS IT IN THE SOUTHERN OR NORTHERN HEMISPHERE?
  • WHICH COUNTRIES AND OTHER ISLANDS ARE CLOSEST TO IT?    HOW CLOSE?
  • WHICH CONTINENT MAY CLAIM IT?

 

Part 2 - You can use your  ISLAND DESIGN SHEET - (above ) in the resourses or you might like to use the above 1cm squared paper if you need a larger space to now 'DESIGN YOUR ISLAND. 

Look at the example maps on slide 6. Look at some of the landmarks- what would you like to add to your island? Why? Add a name for your island and some of its main landmarks.

  • What landmarks have you added to your island design?
  • What are the co-ordinates of a specific landmark?
  • What is your most southerly landmark?

Extension

  • Can you work out the total area of your island?- Using 1cm squared paper- you will need to think of a scale for your map e.g 1cm on your map represents 10 metres  ( 1 000cm)  on the ground.  Scale 1:1000
  • Map scale refers to the relationship (or ratio) between distance on a map and the corresponding distance on the ground. For example, on a 1:100000 scale map, 1cm on the map equals 1km on the ground.
