The United Kingdom

The United Kingdom

This is actually intended as Lesson One of an Around the World unit for my year 1 Geography, but it would work well as a stand-alone introduction to the British Isles. It provides a simple introduction to the United Kingdom, with facts about England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, as well as a mini-assessment at the end with true/false statements the children can answer, based on the learning they have just done.
