C A L I F O R N I A

 

From our immersion as part of our ‘California’ topic, we have discovered that some children already know that...

 

  • California is a state in the U.S.A
  • it contains some famous cities and landmarks such as Disneyland, Los Angeles and the Golden Gate Bridge
  • California has a warm climate and lots of beaches
  • Earthquakes can happen there

 

So we have decided as a class that we want to ...

 

  • how natural disasters - such as earthquakes - are caused
  • who lived in California before the European settlers arrived
  • why there is a time difference between different parts of U.S.A
  • what the most important landmarks and cities in California are and why

 

As part of our topic, we split up into groups to create a giant map of California. We researched the human and physical geography of our regions and included what we found out on our maps. Have a look below to see how we got on!
