Island project

Hello Year 4,

Every group or ‘island’ in our school has been given a real island to study. This week we would like you to complete a project researching all about your ‘island’.

If you are in the Mon/Tues group then you are studying The Greek islands.

If you are in school on Thursday/Friday you are researching Madagascar.

This week we would you to start researching your island and creating a fact file booklet of information.

Here are some ideas of areas that you could research about…

Location of the island

Animals/nature

Climate

Flag

Landmarks

Food

Languages

National dress

Currency (what is the money called)

Things the island does to make money e.g. tourism, natural resources?

Travel – how long does it take to get there from the UK?

Tallest mountain/longest river

Population

leaders

Famous people

What activities can you do on the island?

Your booklet could include a decorated front cover, different pages with different areas you have researched on each page, headings, subheadings, drawings, captions, facts, diagrams, a contents page etc.

Here are some websites to help start you off…
