Activity 4 - Aerial Photos, Geography

Imagine that you could magically sit on a cloud, as it drifts around the world, and look down at the ground below!  What could you see? 


If possible, use Google Earth (takes a lot of memory to download!) and zoom in on different places, talking about what you can see with another family member. Can you see trees, fields, buildings, rivers, people, roads...? How do they look from above?  Can you compare cities with the countryside, or the seaside? What about a desert in Egypt, North Africa, the rain forest of Brazil, South American and the arctic tundra of Canada?


You could draw a map of your favourite place and add labels.
