Settlements 2

Settlements - cities, towns, villages and hamlets - is one of the topics covered in KS2 geography. This is the second of two quizzes on the subject and it looks specifically at how settlements have developed and how they link together.

Settlements are colonies where people live such as hamlets and cities. Settlements have developed over time and most include constructed facilities such as roads which link them together with other settlements, enclosures for livestock, fields systems for growing crops, ditches for drainage, ponds for waterfowl and fish, parks for leisure, woods and churches. People live together for convenience and to be social.
