Identifying similarities and differences between the UK and St Lucia

Identifying similarities and differences between the UK and St Lucia

This resource is designed for KS2 children. It is part of a wider unit called Exploring St Lucia which is designed to teach children about a contrasting non-European country. First the presentation introduces children to key vocabulary. It then outlines similarities and differences between the St Lucia and the UK including: - location in the world - population - languages - currency - heads of state - physical geography - employment The first activity helps children to recap what they have learned about the St Lucia and the UK. The follow up activity then challenges them to identify similarities and differences between the two countries. If you like this resource, please review it.

Tour the Roman Colosseum with Google Earth Tours Make a virtual field trip to the Roman Colosseum, one of the planet’s most famous landmarks. You will be using Google Earth to watch a pre-recorded tour of the ancient arena and it’s neighboring structures. Making cameo appearances on the trip are the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, the Vatican and the Spanish Steps, to name just a few. The product includes a document of about 25 interesting facts about the tourist attraction. The tour is also accompanied by a PDF file that describes what you are seeing based on the corresponding minutes in the video. This is so you can pause the tour at the given time stamp and let the class know what they are looking at. 1. For example the document says at, “1:05 – 1:18 – You are brought directly above the Colosseum. a. The area to the west of the Colosseum is the Roman Forum with Palatine Hill just south of the forum. i. The Roman Forum was the political and spiritual center of the ancient Roman Empire for centuries. Now it is an incredible archaeological site open to the public where you can see many ancient buildings, temples, basilicas, and more. ii. According to Roman legend, the sons of the god Mars, Romulus and Remus, were raised on Palatine Hill and founded Rome here.” The tour begins with a view of Europe from outer space. You are then zoomed in to the site’s location to see it from a variety of different viewpoints. The angles are chosen so the students can get a good idea of the structure’s location within Rome, as well as, its physical relationship to other famous landmarks in its vicinity. To watch, all you have to do is click on the file, Google Earth will open and the tour will start. Feel free to visit some other famous landmarks in the Americas. 1. The Golden Gate Bridge 2.
