Map skills


This week's activities require you to use compass directions to identify a location and you will also become familiar with ordnance survey maps and their symbols.

Use these guides to help you.

Use the Ordnance Survey symbols and legend, to help you explore 2 places in England that are popular with tourists.

There is a map of Windermere in the Lake District and Skegness in Lincolnshire.


What can you see at each location? Can you spot similar things are are they different? Why do you think tourists visit these places? Which would you prefer to visit and why? What is the landscape like? Is it hilly or flat?
