1 Activity Sheet 1 Finding where we are In this task you are going to learn about the physical features of your local geography (where you live) using Google Maps and Google Earth. 1. Let s start with Google Maps. On the Google UK Search page ( click the Maps link: 2. This takes you to the Google UK Maps page: Now type in the postcode of your school and press enter.

2 You will see a map of the area around your school and a green arrow marking where the school is. 3. Explore some of the features of Google Maps: There are lots of ways to move around a map and to zoom in and out: You can zoom with a mouse scroll wheel, the slider bar or the + and buttons You can move the map around or view surrounding areas by using the arrows or by dragging the map (hold down the left mouse button) You can also drag the blue location frame (in the bottom righthand corner) 4. Use the map to answer these questions: Can you see the road where you live? Are there any railway lines or parks or rivers? What other features can you see? How can we tell what the distances on the map are?

3 5. Have a look at the satellite view using the Satellite button. This shows photographs of the area taken from space. Can you see your school and the roads and other features on the Satellite view? Next try the Hybrid view to put the map and satellite view together (you can find out what hybrid means using Google Search type define: hybrid into the search box and see what results come up). 6. Now let s compare the Google Earth view. You can also type the school postcode into Google Earth. This offers different features to Google Maps.

4 7. Try zooming right in to see how close you can get to your school (use the controls in the top right-hand corner of the screen). Google Earth has a number of Layers these are sets of features which you can switch on or off to show information. Layers include: Roads Borders Populated places Geographic features

5 Try turning some of these on and off by ticking the boxes in Layers. 8. A useful feature of Layers is Geographic Web. These are interactive buttons which link to photos and information, such as Wikipedia entries. They are not found in all areas, but for large cities such as London you will find many of them showing photos of important buildings or famous views. You might be able to use these tools to find out about some of the features of your local area. It is also interesting to compare how large buildings and other features look from the air compared with photos. What buildings can you identify in your area apart from houses? What else is the land used for, apart from roads and houses?

6 Activity Sheet 2 Making maps and adding features In this task you are going to create your own map of your local area and add detail to it. 1. Here is an example for the town of Whitby in North Yorkshire: Open Google Maps (click the Maps link on the Google Search home page). Type Whitby into the Google Maps search box and press enter (Select Whitby North Yorkshire): 2. You will need to create a blank word processing document to make your map. The document should be given a title such as Map of Whitby and saved in a suitable location. Keep the document open.

7 3. Switch to the Google Map of Whitby. Zoom in or out to a view which shows the whole town, as above. To create a screen grab of the map like the one above, press the Print Screen key on the keyboard. Go to the Word document and click copy (use Edit or right click the mouse). 4. The map can now be given extra features. Here are some ideas: If you live in the town type your postcode into Google Maps to show the location of your home. Create a text box in your document next to the map (ask your teacher for help if you re unsure) and type your address into it. Add a screen grab of the satellite view in Google Maps or a screen grab from Google Earth to show what the town looks like from the air:

8 5. Next you can label some of the geographical features of the area. If you don t know what they are, you can explore using Google Maps or search using Google Web search. Here is an example for Whitby, using the River Esk, which flows through the town. 6. Next you can make and attach an information box to these labels with two facts about each place. Here is an example: Search River Esk Whitby using Google Search to find out some facts. Write the information in your own words into a new text box in your document

9 8. To improve the map even further we can find a photo of the feature to add to the map using Google Images. On the Google Search page, click Images: Type River Esk Whitby or River Esk Yorkshire, or the feature that you are looking for, into the images search box: 9. Click the image you want so you can see it on the web page where it is found. Right click the image to copy it. Paste it into the map document (remember to save!)

10 10. You now can continue doing this, adding labels, information and images, to build up your own illustrated map of where you live. Here are suggestions for other things to include: Pictures of the surrounding countryside Labels for the main roads into town and where they head to Railway lines The highest hills in the area Tourist attractions (such as Whitby Abbey in this case) Details of physical features such as hills or lakes or forests Famous inhabitants Statistics such as population, main industries, weather data Churches, mosques or temples The street you live in.
