Identifying human & physical features of the UK

This lesson is part of Exploring the United Kingdom, a Geography unit designed for KS1 and lower KS2 (Y2-4).

The presentation helps students understand the difference between human and physical geographical features. It then challenges them to classify famous UK landmarks as either human or physical.

There are two engaging activities included:

Partner activity:
Students sort pictures/descriptions of UK landmarks into human and physical geographical features.

Individual activity:
Students match pictures of UK landmarks to their descriptions. This is differentiated three ways:

Easier – Students match 8 features to their descriptions.
Medium – Students match 12 features to their descriptions.
Harder – Students write a description of each UK landmark using a word bank.

Extension – Students sort the UK landmarks into human and physical geographical features.
