For younger children, geography is about noticing things happening in the natural world and in their own environment. Children will begin to comment on the things that they notice and ask questions to find out why things happen the way that they do.
Some activities to try.
- Make a weather chart to record the changes in the weather.
- Sort clothing into groups for different seasons.
- Draw a picture of themselves in summer and winter.
- Look at the local area on google maps – what buildings can they identify?
- Draw a simple map of an imaginary place or a pirate map.
- Draw a picture of a familiar place.
- Look at photographs of other places – how are they the same and different?

The land use activity asks you to print out a map. If you do not have a printer, have a go at sketching the map of your area.
If you have a go at the quiz one, why not make up your own quiz about another town? We could share it for your friends to try.
