Class 4 - African Modelling

Class: Mr Carruthers - Class 2 Year: 2018 - 2019

A creative, yet scientific, end to our "Maps" theme.  We studied topographical and contour maps of Africa; then we recreated a 3D Map of Africa of our own (not to scale).  We learned that these kind of 3D maps exaggerate the size of geographical features, so we did too.  Can you identify the desert regions of the Sahara, and the Kalahari?  Can you spot Mount Kilimanjaro?
