  15. 15. Geography tools Find information about the weather in Spain, Argentina, the United Kingdom, India or Australia. Choose a blank map from geography.about.com and use an image edition programme (Paint, Gimp, Photoshop...) and made a thematic map that represents the information obtained. Remember to include the scale, legend, orientation symbols and even coordinates. Alternatively, you can print the blank map and make it by hand. Hand or send the resulting map to your teacher. 15
  16. 16. Geography tools Now choose an example of how maps help us understand information: comparing features, showing historical events, human activity, the weather, economy, etc. You'll have to show and explain it to your classmates and teacher. Look at this example: 16
  17. 17. Geography tools In pairs you'll have to choose some type of information and show it on a blank map of Europe.

Download your map of Europe from Wikimedia Commons. 17
  18. 18. Geography tools The metric system is not used in the UK or the USA. Imperial units are used in the UK so it's useful to be familiar with the equivalences. Find the metric units that are used for the same purpose: ●Yard ↔ ●Inch ↔ ●Ounce ↔ ●Mile ↔ ●Pound ↔ ●Gallon ↔ ●Pint ↔ ●º Farenheit ↔ ●Foot ↔ 18
  19. 19. Geography tools Now use a unit conversion website to calculate common measurements: Your height ●The area / length of your classroom ●The area / length of your bedroom ●The distance between your house and the school ●The temperature in your classroom ●The temperature outside ●Your weight ●The length of your notebook ●The speed of a fast car ● 19

  21. 21. Geography tools Using a word processor, try to make a chart to depict some data about population, the weather or history. Remember to include the legend, the data, several types of data and a title. Send it to your teacher in a .odt or .doc document. 21
  22. 22. Geography tools For your final task you will have to take part in a discussion about the metric system. Before starting the debate, write down five positive and five negative aspects of the metric system in your notebook. Be creative and think of other measurement systems. 22
