Friday

When we return to school and it is safe to do so, we hope to have a guest speaker who has lived in the area for some time. 

They have seen the area change over years and seen how land in the area has been used for different purposes. 

What kind of things do you think we could ask questions about?

  • Land use
  • Travel
  • Traffic

Can you think of any more?

 

Task 1: use the question generator to help you think of some questions that you want to ask the guest speaker.

Task 2: have a look at these three maps. What do you notice about then? Write down your ideas. What is the same? What is different?

You could present your information in a table if you like, or written as sentences.

Task 3:

Look at the three maps and the observations you have made, think about why you think the land use has changed over time. 

Answer these questions:
