Places 1

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 first of two quizzes on the subject.

Places are locations in the world. The study of places in geography means looking at the use of land, the climate, population, economic activity and physical and human features of a place. With the increased understanding this gives us, we can then compare and contrast the places we live with other places in the world.
