    Your task is to write at least two paragraphs using all of the punctuation mentioned.

    or….. make up your own topic.


    2. Inquiry

    We want you to practice interpreting geographical information and data in maps.

    You will need to look up a map topic. eg. South Africa resources map, China population map or Canada water distribution map. All three of these searches will provide you with map images. (Choose countries that you are interested in perhaps.)

    Make a copy of the map you want.(draw or download)

    Describe what the map is showing you.

    It’s pretty open ended. You can take this as far as you want. You can do 1 map or more if you like.

    Does your map have a key? Are there different colour shadings – what do they show?

    You are analysing what you are looking at. It is similar to the work we did in class when we studied Literacy, Water quality and Food.
