Investigate the causes effects of climate change on the polar ice caps
Climate change (or global warming), is the process of our planet heating up. Scientists estimate that since the Industrial Revolution, human activity has caused the Earth to warm by approximately 1°C.. Unfortunately, rising temperatures don’t just mean that we’ll get nicer weather. The changing climate will actually make our weather more extreme and unpredictable

Read the information on climate change:

https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/geography/general-geography/what-is-climate-change/

Design a poster to help stop climate change

Try and include:

  • What are the causes of climate change?
  • How will climate change effect the planet?
  • How will climate change effect living things?

What is being done to prevent climate change?

WC 11 May 2020
Human processes both influence and are influenced by the physical features of environments that offer both possibilities for and constraints to human activity.
Research the most popular tourist destinations in New York City, USA.

https://www.nycgo.com/

Make a travel brochure for potential visitors to New York City..

Try and include:

  • Travel (how can you get there/ Local airports?)
  • Accommodation (where might people stay?)
  • Attractions (What is there to see and do?)

Examples of travel brochures:

Physical features are the naturally occurring landforms of environments. They include:

  • hills
  • mountains
  • valleys
  • bodies of water, e.g. streams, becks, tarns, rivers, lakes, seas, oceans, lagoons
  • natural resources, e.g. the site of copper, tin, zinc, cobalt (although mines that are created to extract them are human features).

A mountain range refers to a series of hills or mountains arranged in a line and linked together by high ground.
Watch the video on Mountain Ranges around the world.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z27tfg8

There are 3 main mountain ranges in North America: the Rocky Mountains, the Sierra Nevada and the Appalachian Mountains.
Choose one of these mountain ranges (or all of them) to research. Present your findings as a poster. Include key information on:

  • Useful statistics (length, highest peak)
  • Features
  • Climate
  • Habitats (what animals might you find)
  • People

Here are some websites to help you:

Use google maps to investigate some of the human features of Manhattan in New York City. Draw a map of the key human features of the town (things that have been built by humans such as bridges, city, town, village, factory, farm, house, office, port, harbour, transport, church and shop.).

 //www.google.com/maps/@40.7796122,-73.967706,14z">https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7796122,-73.967706,14z

Look at the map of Manhattan, zoom in to closely. Compare with a map of Stonehouse. //www.google.com/maps/@51.7450412,-2.2828041,17z">https://www.google.com/maps/@51.7450412,-2.2828041,17z

 Make a table comparing the human features in both towns. Similarities in one column, differences in the other.
Research some images of Manhattan. What do you notice about the architecture? Would you want to live there? Give some reasons for your answer.

WC 20 April 2020
Using the given website, research North America as a location.
Present your findings in your work book including:

  • Population

  • Major cities (research and draw some of the flags)
  • Key geographical features
  • Bordering bodies of water
