Maps and the Landscape by John Greenlees
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a resource for pupils in the 10-14 age group which takes account of recent changes to the Key Stage 3 Programme of Study and the 5-14 Environmental Studies guidelines in Scotland. It teaches the basic map skills that pupils need, and then goes on to practice and apply these skills within a range of physical and human landscapes in the British Isles. The text thus combines vital skills work with the study of relevant places and geographical themes, and can be integrated into schemes of work as and when appropriate. OS map extracts, photographs and diagrams are used throughout the book and often form the basis of activities. Questions are organized in terms of increasing complexity so that the text meets the needs of both higher and lower achievers.

Table of Contents

Map skills - atlas maps; making maps; route maps; choropleth maps; map symbols; grid references; height and slope; contours and cross sections; identifying landforms. Physical landscapes - rivers, coasts, lowlands; uplands; tectonic. Human landscapes - urban; rural; industrial; wilderness.
