A whole lesson to help to assess the students prior knowledge of OS maps and help them to practice using four and six figure grid references. I teach this to the year 7’s but could be easily transfered to other ages.
A worksheet designed to accompany the NOVA ‘Killer Typhoon’ documentary which is about the strongest cyclone to hit land in recorded history - Typhoon Haiyan, Philippines, November 2013.
