Messy maps and market place

Y5 and Y6 became cartographers (sort of!) to create world maps on the playground using chalk to draw the outline of each continent. We talked about invisible lines running around the world and drew on the Equator, Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. Then it was time to use an atlas: we had to find out which deserts and mountain ranges were each continent. We used P.E. equipment to show where each feature was.
