Hello, I am currently planning a Year 4 geography unit involving a comparison study, looking at human and physical similarities and differences between our local area and an area in France (possibly, or perhaps Spain). Can anyone tell me how they have gone about planning to cover this part of the curriculum? Did your children do a lot of internet research? Did you focus on just a few aspects - for instance, comparing climate for physical and population for human, or did you look into many aspects? Also, prior to this, we have studied Europe more generally, firstly to look at key physical features (planned lots of map work to locate rivers/mountain ranges etc). Then, I planned to look at human features generally. At the risk of sounding a little silly - I know human geography covers a huge amount - trade, tourism, population etc, and we couldn't possibly delve into it all, but is it too limited to look at one aspect? Everything I come across seems to suggest landmarks (is that actually human geog?!). Apologies for all the questions - I am certainly not a geography specialist and I really don't want to let down my children as a result of this! Thank you in advance - all suggestions/advice much appreciated.
