    • Build your own India!
      • Lesson aims:
      • In this lesson we will see the main physical features of India
      • You will be producing a 3 D model of India
      • Your model needs to be as exact as possible and it can show specific areas of India eg. Deccan Plateau
    • What 10 keys things did you you find out on your Indian passport? Capital city? Main religions
    • Fasten your seat belt – we are now going to take off for India
      • Please check…….
      • Your luggage is stored away in the overhead cabin
      • You have a good window seat to see the layout of the country!
    • Follow the route planner on the overhead screen
      • Our flight will last approximately 9 hours.
      • You will fly out across Europe and then across the Arabian Sea
    • What can you see out of the window…?
      • The shape and layout of the land….
      • The rivers, the mountains, the coastline…
      • What is your first impression?
      • Let’s look closely at the land – where is it highest? Lowest?
      • Look at our model of the land on ‘make a model of India’ worksheet, shade the different heights using the key
      • Use the atlas – what are the Northerly, Western and Eastern highlands known as?
      Build your own India Then...
    • Building India…
      • Use the second worksheet , and the card to start to model India’s land….
      • Divide your card into 6
      • The blue is the sea (this is the Indian Ocean)…
      • Now cut out the whole of India on Orange – this is 0-200m
      • Then cut out 200m and above
      • Then cut out 500m and above
      • Then cut out 1000m and above – care there are some small areas here.
      • Finally cut out 4000m and above.
      Remember: Layer 1 = Indian Ocean BLUE Layer 2 = Coastline and main land Orange Layer 3 = 200m Peach Layer 4 = 500m Green Layer 5 = 1000m Yellow Layer 6 = 4000m Red
    • Add the detail and finishing touches!!
      • Now the model has it’s layers add on the key physical features:
      • River Ganges
      • Western and Eastern Ghats
      • Deccan Plateau
      • Himalayas
      • Arabian Sea

      Try and remember these physical features for next lesson – you might be able to guess where most people would like to, or not like to live!!
