Identifying the key features of mountains

This is the first lesson in Mountain Environments, a Geography unit designed for students in upper KS2 (Y4-6).

First the presentation introduces students to the topic and looks at some of the activities people do in mountains. It then introduces the key features of a mountain range.

The activity challenges students to identify the key features of a mountain environment. It is differentiated three ways:

Easier – Students identify 8 key features of mountains.
Medium – Students identify 10 key features of mountains.
Harder – Students label the key features of mountains in their exercise book.

Extension –  Students match mountain vocabulary to their definitions.
