UK Map Collage


This week, we would like you to explore the map of the UK!


First, have a go at exploring the UK using Google Earth and these maps below...


Then, use old newspapers and magazines, or even just colouring felt tips/pencils, to create a collage of the United Kingdom map. Use an atlas, Google Earth or the picture below to help you understand the terrain and physical features of key areas


Try to select colours and textures that show:

  • greys for urban areas
  • greens for rural areas
  • blue for rivers and lakes
  • white for mountains
  • Yellows for coastal areas/beaches.


Use small, thumbnail-sized pieces of paper and layer them together to create your own UK!


Have fun and don't forget to send your finished creations to the Year 5 email!
