Listen to our continent song again to remind yourself of the 7 continents. Can you join in with the song and remember their names?
Today we are going to be learning all about the continent Africa! Go through the powerpoint below to find out about Africa.
As you are going through the powerpoint, ask your child these questions:
Can you locate it on the map?
Look at the pictures of Africa, which ones do you think are Africa? Which ones do you think are not Africa? Why?
Today we will also be looking at special landmarks in Africa. A landmark is something that stands out in an area like a building, a bridge, a lake or river, a sculpture or something else. These places might be special because of their age or their size. They can be manmade (human) or natural (physical).
Have a look at the pictures of landmarks, can you decide whether they are human or physical features?
Task: Sort the landmarks into physical and human features.
