Geography: The Physical Features of the Artic circle.
Physical features are the parts of our landscape that occur naturally. For example rocks, mountains, valleys, cliffs rivers and streams etc.
Discuss with your family what physical features are in the environment close to where you live.
If we think about the Artic which forms the northern most part of our Earth - what physical feature do you think you will see.
Have a look at the slide presentation below. As you look at each picture on the slides can you guess what the physical feature is? When you have finished the power point see if you can complete the labels on the Artic Picture in your resources folder. Can you have a go at matching the definitions and pictures to the features icons on the Landscapes worksheet?
