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 maps, plans, atlases, GPS, Sat-Nav and other ways of representing and understanding the world. It is one of 50 quizzes to help you understand the world around you.
How do we know where things are? How do you find your way around? What if you were in a place you did not know? What would help you find out where you were? That’s why people draw maps to represent features around us. Simple maps are just plans whilst atlases show the entire world! You might draw a plan of your bedroom, or a route map of how you get to school. The next few quizzes are all about maps, plans and finding out about the world.
