Geography Summer term

This final term in Geography we should be learning about different habitats, places that animals live. In weeks 7 and 8 we will be moving to Africa and finding out about where the African elephants live. Start by thinking about the different animals we have already studied, Which was the biggest and smallest? Where did they live. Find Namibia on a map of the world. Then look at the physical map of Namibia and talk about what the different colours represent find out as much as you can about the physical geography of Namibia- Physical Map .
