The Year 2's have been learning about the continents and oceans of the world. We learnt two songs to help us remember the size of the continents from largest to smallest.
We worked in small groups and used an atlas to research and find out about the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world.
We used this knowledge to create our own globe of the world. We had to cut out the continents and labels from a map of the world. We had some help from our Year 6 buddies to blow up a blue balloon. We drew a line around the middle of our balloon to represent the equator. We then placed all the continents on the balloon followed by the names of the oceans.
We really enjoyed this activity and we learnt a lot too.
