Featured activity: Local Area Mapping

This activity is one of our BRAND NEW activities all about mapping, exploring and helping your local environment. It’s part of our new My Local Area activities.

Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 12.49.53Each term this year, we’ll have a different activity focus from this new project collection. While the activities do work as stand-alone projects, they are designed to be completed sequentially, one each term.

This first project is all about mapping your local environment, with your students working collaboratively to gain a deeper understanding of the geography, geology, flora and fauna of their local area, working collaboratively.

Students will create a layered set of maps of a defined area. They’ll investigate not only the physical layout of the area, but also what makes up the surface features, and how plants and animals have taken advantage of these features and the resources they provide.
