Geography Journeys- Camino de Santiago: Plotting Latitude Longidute and Altitude

This lesson was created for a KS3 year 8 class, although I would suggest that it would work for year 9 too.

The lesson involves using prior knowledge about latitude and longitude (although this can be gone over quickly if needed) to plot the towns along the Camino de Santiago.

Pupils will create a route across northern Spain and then use altitude data to plot this on a line graph. There are a range of questions based on this map & graph which ask students to analyse the data provided and improve their geographical/mathematical skills. The plenary involves asking pupils to work out where each photo was taken, using their map and graph to help.
