Identifying human and natural features of the world

This lesson is part of Our World, a Geography unit designed for students in KS1 and lower KS2 (Y1-3), but can also be taught as a stand alone lesson.

The presentation first helps students understand the concepts of ‘human’ and ‘natural’. It then takes them on a journey around the world and challenges them to identify human and natural features of our planet (e.g. mountains, airports).

There are two associated activities:

Group activity:
Students match pictures of features of the world to their names and sort them into human and natural categories.

Individual activity:
Children identify photos of features of the world.

Easier – Students identify features of the world (no writing).
Harder – Students identify features of the world (writing).

ExtensionStudents label each feature as human (H) or natural (N).
