In this geography driven study, we will be exploring the geography and science curriculum through the key question - 'Why can't meerkats live in the North Pole?'
As geographers, we will extend our knowledge of the hottest and coldest places on Earth, using globes and maps to identify the locations and climates of these different areas. Our geography skills will also be enhanced through gaining an understanding of why it is hotter nearer to the equator and also how the weather changes with the seasons in the UK.
By exploring why meerkats can't live in the North Pole, our scientific skills will be enhanced as we learn about how different animals adapt to their habitats and surroundings. Throughout this study, we will continually revisit and refine our skills to ensure that our 'golden nuggets' of knowledge will be embedded into our long term memories!
I am bringing these two in with me for EBL on Tuesday 14th September.
Husky is from a very cold part of the world. Do you know where? Do you know how he copes with the freezing temperatures? Does Giraffe live in a cold country too?
Do you have a toy animal from a hot or cold country that you could bring in for our lesson on Tuesday? You might even have a meerkat you could show us!! (Please don’t bring your most precious toy. We will of course take care great care of the toys we all bring in, but unfortunately accidents can happen)
