Misty Mountain, Winding River & Vista
This project teaches children about the characteristics and features of rivers and mountain ranges around the world, including a detailed exploration of the ecosystems and processes that shape them and the land around them.
Mighty mountains peak above the morning mists, imposing and eternal, rocky outcrops at their feet. Discover how these giants are formed, as a fold or a block, a dome or a plateau. Follow the water cycle’s course from peak to valley and meet the exceptional tribes of the hostile Himalayas. Then plan a mountain expedition from the BMC that is eco-friendly and safe as can be. But beware, look out! What’s that by that tree? Its footprints are huge! Have we found the Yeti?
For our wow starter we looked at rivers and mountains in the UK and around the World on Google maps, information Powerpoints and images from the internet and Curriculum Maestro.
This project teaches children about the techniques that artists use when composing landscape images, such as colour and atmosphere.
