This quiz addresses part of the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2 in Geography. Specifically it looks at boats, ships, ports and harbours, and how they are used to import and export goods by sea. It is one of 50 quizzes to help you understand the world around you.
We live on islands. The two main islands are called Great Britain and Ireland. So we are surrounded by sea. How can we go abroad? We can fly to get to other countries. Or we can go through the Channel Tunnel to France. Or we can take a ferry. A ferry is a boat that carries cars, lorries and people. Big ships bring, or import, food, oil and lots of goods, like computers, to us from other countries. We send, or export, goods we have made to other countries in ships. What else can we find out about how ships and boats are used?
