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.
