Presentation Transcript

1. UK physical landscapes

2. Getting startedYou’ll need a notepad on which to make notes as you go along, or you could make notes, paste images, etc. on your device.You can view these slides:as a slide-show for any animations and to follow linksin ‘normal’ view if you want to add call-outs or extra slides to make notes, paste images, answer questions.

3. UK physical landscapesThe United Kingdom (UK) includes the island of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.There are lots of different physical landscapes in the United Kingdom, but they can all be roughly divided into upland and lowland areas. (You can see upland and lowland areas for England here.)

4. The Lake DistrictThe Lake District is an upland landscape in the UK.Click this link to open a 360º photo (Photo Sphere) of a Lake District landscape.Describe the landscape you see, using relevant terms from the word box.Upland landscapes word boxuplandruggedsteep slopes / relieflake (tarn)exposed rockangularthin soilscreesparse vegetationcliff higher altitude (500m above sea level)corrie back walldramatic landscapestreammountainouspeak

5. Fenland, CambridgeshireFenland (or the Fens) is a lowland area in the east of England.Click this link to open a Photo Sphere of a Fenland landscape.Describe the landscape you see, using relevant terms from the word box.Lowland landscapes word boxlowlandflat, levelfertile soilsriveragricultural land (fields)marshylevee (river bank)grassylush vegetation (green)floodplainlow altitude (height above sea level)low-lyinggentle slopes / reliefdrainagescattered woodlandarable

6. Find your own upland landscapeThe UK’s uplands are generally in the north and west.These regions have hard rocks, often with igneous and metamorphic geology.That makes them resistant to weathering and erosion.Examples of upland areas are the Pennines, Snowdonia, the Grampians and Dartmoor.ActivityUsing Street View on Google Maps, find a landscape that has good upland landscape features.Screenshot your landscape, paste it into a document or a presentation, and add annotations to your key upland landscape features.ResourceGeology of Britain: relief

7. Find your own lowland landscapeThe UK’s lowlands are generally in the south and east.These regions often have softer sedimentary rocks.That makes them less resistant to weathering and erosion.Examples of lowland areas are the Fens, the Thames Valley, the Midlands, the Vale of York, the Weald.ActivityUsing Street View on Google Maps, find a landscape that has good lowland landscape features.Screenshot your landscape, paste it into a document or a presentation, and add annotations to your key lowland landscape features.ResourceGeology of Britain: relief

8. How do landscapes make us feel?Read this poem about Blencathra – the mountain you explored on slide 4. It is by John Phoenix Hutchinson.What feeling(s) does the poet have when he looks at the Blencathra landscape? What words does he use to get these feelings across?Go back to your own upland landscape choice (slide 6). Imagine yourself in that landscape and write your own poem about it: a haiku, perhaps. ResourceResourcePoem generator

9. ResourceHow do landscapes make us feel?Look at this painting of a Fenland landscape, like the one you explored on slide 5. It is by Fred Ingrams.What features of the Fenland lowland landscape has the artist chosen to emphasise?Go back to your own lowland landscape choice (slide 7).Imagine yourself in that landscape and make some art that represents how it makes you feel.ResourceHow to draw your feelings and painting emotions

10. UK physical landscapes: summaryActivityCompare how your upland and lowland landscapes are represented on maps with the ArcGIS OS Map Viewer:Landscape is a complex concept.Now you have explored some upland and lowland landscapes.You have chosen geographical terms to describe these landscapes.You have looked at where upland and lowland landscapes can be found.You’ve seen how others have expressed their feelings about landscapes – and had a go at doing that yourself.

11. GlossaryErosion: the wearing down and transportation away of rocks and soil.Igneous: rocks formed from lava and magma (think volcanoes).Landscape: what you can see of an area of land, including natural features and human features.Metamorphic: rocks that have been changed by extreme heat or pressure.Physical: in geography, physical refers to natural landforms and processes.Sedimentary: rocks formed from layers of deposited sediments.Weathering: break down of rocks where they are in the landscape.
