Map skills – comparing different locations

Have a look at map 1.

Map 1 – London

  1. What human (things made by people) and physical (natural) features can you find?


2. Imagine what do you think this area would be like if you were standing on the ground.

Pick a grid square – you can choose any one.

Now write the following…

  • 3 things that you might hear in this location.
  • 3 things that you might see
  • 3 things that you might smell…

Now do the same with map 2.

Map 2 – Bamburgh castle

Did you hear, see and smell different things in the 2 locations? Was anything similar?
