Geography - Climb Every Mountain

 

Monday 1st June:

Task 1: Locating the major mountain ranges of the world
☼ How would you define a mountain? How is a mountain formed (think back to Year 4)? Write down some words, phrases or sentences to try and explain in your own words what a mountain is and how they are formed.
☼ Go through the Mountain Environment Slide 1 (available below). Stop at page 7.

  • Look at what you wrote down to define a mountain and how it is formed. What would you add to it or change about what you wrote now?

☼ Continue with Mountain Environment Slide 1 from page 8 to 9. How many different mountains or mountain ranges can you name?
☼ Complete the Mountain Environment worksheet (available below). Use a map or atlas to find the given mountain ranges. 

  • Must: Find and write down the continent of each mountain range.
  • Should: As above, and write which country or countries the mountain ranges are in.
  • Could: As above, and mark the mountain ranges on the map provided.

We recommend recording the short date, subject and focus at the start (just like we would in school, but simpler) to help you keep track.

 

Tuesday 2nd June:

Task 1: Investigating Mountain Environments
☼ Go through Mountain Environment Slide 2 (available below).
☼ From the mountain environments discussed, choose one that you would like to investigate.

☼ Write down 6 questions that you would like to find the answer to about your chosen mountain environment.

☼ Here are some suggestions for questions to help you get started:

  • What is the location of the mountain?
  • How high it is it?
  • How did the mountain get its name?

You may present your information in any way that you like.

  • Must: Answer your six questions.
  • Should: As above, and include some more interesting facts about your chosen mountain environment.
  • Could: As above, and include an annotated map showing where your chosen mountain environment is.

We recommend recording the short date, subject and focus at the start (just like we would in school, but simpler) to help you keep track.

 

Thursday 4th June:

Task 1: Mountain Climates
☼ Go through Mountain Environment Slide 3 (available below).
☼ Today we would like you to research the climate data of a chosen mountain environment. You may choose the same mountain as you investigated yesterday or you may choose a different mountain to investigate.
☼ Download the Climate Data worksheet (available below). Find out the climate data for your chosen mountain and fill it in on the charts provided.

  • Must: Research the climate data and fill it in on the worksheet.
  • Should: As above, and plot your data on a bar graph (have another look at the examples of bar graphs on Mount Environment Slide 3).
  • Could: As above, and research the climate data of another mountain, presenting the data on a line graph.

We recommend recording the short date, subject and focus at the start (just like we would in school, but simpler) to help you keep track.
