This term the children in Year 5 have already started learning about South America. To start our unit we researched the countries that make up South America and more about its location on Earth in relation to the equator. We’ve also researched the different in the continent and what causes them. One boy in the class was so impressed with the new vocabulary he’s discovered he brought them into his science fiction story!

When we knew which countries were in South America the real fun began. We used the maps to help us create our own 3D salt dough maps. We were able to show the countries, the Amazon and the mountain range. Don’t Kim’s what the mountain range is called? Ask us, we do! Check out some pictures of our models at the bottom of our page.
