Investigating what life is like on a small island

This lesson is part of The Seaside, 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 introduces students to the Isles of Scilly, which lie off the south-west coast of the UK. Students then get to find out what it’s like to live on an island with Zoe and Isaac, two children who live on Bryher.

The activity then challenges students to think about the differences between life on the Isles of Scilly and life on the mainland.


Easier – Students sort 8 statements describing life on the Isles of Scilly and life on the mainland.
Harder – Students sort 14 statements describing life on the Isles of Scilly and life on the mainland.

Extension – Can students think of their own statements to write in each column?
