Listen to the Geography song on the above link. Have a sing along and then choose one of the tasks to complete:
• Make your own globe: -Make a papier-mâché globe using a beach ball or balloon, newspaper and PVA glue/wallpaper paste and water. This BBC recipe online uses flour! Using crayon, hand draw on the continents and oceans.
• Word search and treasure hunt: -Make a word search for someone. Write out the names of the seas and continents in a grid (you’ll need a minimum of 12 boxes each way e.g. for North America) then fill in the gaps with random letters. Remember words can go up, down, across and diagonally!
• Fact finding mission: -What can you find out about each continent and ocean? Take one per day and research it. For the continents: which countries, largest cities are in each continent? What key geographical features such as mountain ranges, forests, rivers, deserts are there? What are their oldest religious and historical buildings? What animals and vegetation live there? For the oceans: find out which is the largest, what temperate each one is, how saline the water is, what animals and creatures can be found in them, how deep they are etc. Create a presentation on each, including as much information you can.
• Conduct an interview: -Do you know anyone that comes from another continent? Ask an adult to help you call or video this person/people and interview them about where they live or come from. They might teach you some words in a new language or about a rare animal. Make a poster about what they have taught you.
• Listening activity: -Listen to water inspired music Aquarium from Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saëns https://youtu.be/IyFpZ5MZ7kk. Can you identify any of the instruments playing? What can you imagine happening in the water and can you think of any adjectives to describe the movement, the sound quality of the instruments or the pitch of the music? -Listen to other water inspired music like: Ludovico Einaudi Le Onde (the waves in Italian) https://youtu.be/Ie951V1yd4A -Listen and watch Ludovico Einaudi’s Elegy for the Arctic filmed live in situ. https://youtu.be/2DLnhdnSUVs
