LO: to explore the features of an ordnance survey map

Go through PPT and talk through the features which make an OS map and why they are used.

 Key points are:

  • Symbols not words (as very detailed and saves space)
  • Contour lines
  • Grid references
  • An accurate representation of the land showing both physical and human features


Carry out the symbol match activity


Extension- Use 2 different colours to shade the human  and physical features
