WALT – use reasoned justification for views on different texts.
WALT- use digital mapping to locate countries and describe features
Use physical and online maps to plot the route Darwin took on HMS Beagle.
Highlight the places he visited:
- including Cape Verde Islands
- The Falkland Islands
- The Galápagos Islands and Ascension Island.
Could use a spreadsheet, use a formula to work out the distance (as the crow flies) between two references of longitude and latitude.
Find the longitude and latitude for each place - explain how it relates to the Equator and the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
Use scaled maps to estimate how far Darwin travelled in total.
