Writing a Spain fact file - Exploring Spain - KS2

This lesson is part of Exploring Spain, a Geography unit designed for upper KS2 students (Y4-6), but can also be taught as a stand alone lesson.

First the presentation covers key vocabulary (e.g. population, currency). It then locates Spain within Europe, asks students what they know about Spain and challenges them to think of ways to find out more.

There are two activities:

Research Activity:
Students research Spain using information sources (e.g. information books or suggested websites).
Easier – Students research famous landmarks, people, wildlife and Spanish food.
Harder – Students choose their own topics to research.
Extension: – Students draw pictures for each topic or find appropriate images online.

Writing Activity:
Students write a fact file using the information they have found.
Easier – Students write about famous landmarks, people, wildlife and Spanish food.
Harder – Students write about their own topics.
Extension – Students draw pictures or stick photos into the boxes for each topic.
