Using 4-figure grid references in Spain

This lesson is part of Exploring Spain, a Geography unit designed for upper KS2 students (Y4-6), but can also be taught as a stand alone lesson.

The presentation first shows students how to work out a 4-figure grid reference.

The activity then challenges students to describe the position of different cities in Spain using 4-figure grid references. It is differentiated two ways:

Easier – Students locate Spanish cities using 4-figure grid references (with clues).
Harder – Students locate Spanish cities using 4-figure grid references.

Extension – Students identify Spanish cities using compass direction and grid reference clues.
