This lesson is part of a wider cross-curricula unit called London Zoo which is designed for KS1 and lower KS2 students (Y2-4).
The presentation first introduces students to grid references. It then challenges them to give grid references for animals on a map of London Zoo.
In the activity, students are challenged to describe the position of animals at London Zoo using grid references. It is differentiated two ways:
Easier – Students have six colour coded questions so they can locate animals easily.
Harder – Students have to find the animals themselves.
Extention – Students find the grid references of other locations at the zoo (e.g. the gift shop).
