Places Unit of work 7 lessons including test

This unit of work has been written for the start of Year 7, but could be used within any of KS3 or even adapted to Year 6. It starts off with what a place is and describing where we live in the world. It then uses local fieldwork to investigate places and moves on to improving knowledge of the UK, Europe and the World. You will need to adapt the fieldwork lessons slightly due to the local surroundings to your school, but this will only involve a localised google map and a couple of images. There is a test at the end of the unit.
