Explorer Challenge

As part of our Explorer Challenge we have been doing lots of map work. Have a look at what we have been up to!

We have been learning how to use atlases. Using the contents and the index pages we followed clues to find out where Mairi Hedderwick lives. We found her home on an island called Coll west of Scotland.

We have been learning how to read maps. We looked at pictures of Coll and used our map-reading skills to decide where we thought the picture was taken. We then put the picture in the right place on our map of Coll.

We designed our own islands and drew a map of them. On our maps we marked both natural and man-made features.
