Where in the world...

To discover our new topic for the summer term, Rowan class created a human globe to locate the equator, Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. 

The children then commenced to carry out a treasure hunt to find clues and artefacts relating to our topic country. Once all the object were found a rally of discussion and deduction took place as the clues were unpicked. The children were challenged to justify their reasoning for why they thought it was a particular country. 

"I think it could be Spain because it is hot in Spain and you need sun cream." Grace Moody

"I don't think it could be a country within the tropics as the weather clues are not tropical, I think it could be somewhere in the subtropics" Sienna Nickson.
