Potato Contour lines

This week we have continued our learning in Geography by exploring contour lines using potato mountains!

We marked 1 cm lines on our potato mountains then went outside to create a mountain landscape using natural materials.  

Finally we mapped our landscape using grid referencing, slicing our potatoes and drawing around them to create contour lines to show their height and slope. We now have a good understanding of what these lines represent and how to begin to read the height and slope of a landscape.
