Places 2

In KS2 geography children will look at different places around the world, comparing their different characteristics such as population size or climate. This is quite a large topic and so this is the second of two quizzes on the subject.

Places are areas in the world. When we study them we learn about their climate, population, economic activities, culture and many other things. Learning about other countries and how they are similar or different to ours teaches us how other people live. It gives us a greater understanding of the human race. We might even learn something useful for ourselves.

Let's take a look at some of the different types of climate, industry and way of life found in places around the world.
