Task 1: Locate Mexico


Use world maps and satellite images to locate Mexico, identifying which hemisphere it is in

and the countries that surround it.


Once found, draw a sketch map of the country, showing aspects of its human and physical geography, including major

cities, surrounding seas, mountain ranges, airports and tourist resorts.

(You could use the magnifier technique you used in science when taking a closer look at plants)

Task 2: Chihuahuan Desert




The Chihuahuan is the largest desert in North America, Stretching all the way from south western

United States deep into the central Mexican highlands.


Use maps, atlases, globes and the internet to locate the Chihuahuan Desert.


Learn about the animal and plant species found there, what the climate is like, the people who live there

and the difficulties they face.


How will you present this information? Powerpoint? Collage? Poster? Factfile?
