Identifying famous features and characteristics of countries 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 first explains how every country – just like people – has its own special features and characteristics. It then introduces a variety of famous UK landmarks, sports and foods and challenges students to work out whether each is from England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

The activity can be done in two ways:

Partner activity:
In mixed ability partners, students match 20 features and characteristics to the four UK countries.

Individual activity:
Students match 20 features/characteristics to the four UK countries.

Easier – Students match features/characteristics to each country (using stickers with labels).
Harder – Students match features/characteristics to each country and label each one (using stickers without labels).
