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 using landmarks to find your way around. It is one of 50 quizzes to help you understand the world around you.
Landmarks are useful. They help you find your way around. In a busy shopping centre, your parents may say that they will meet at the fountain in the middle. You tell your friends that you will meet at the slide on the park. On holiday, your Mum might say, ‘Ah, I know where we are now.’ Landmarks are usually buildings. But they can be statues, or hills, or even a bridge. They are somewhere that everyone knows. They are often tall, so you can see them easily. Let’s find out a bit more about using landmarks.
