Discover the UK with Bee-Bot and this fantastic new UK Bee-Bot mat! Children will have loads of fun and learn all about the Geography of the UK with this highly detailed, animated and colourful map. The map comes with eyelets so when it is not being used with Bee-Bot, it doubles as a beautiful wall display for your classroom. The perfect cross-curricular resource, encompassing map reading skills, co-ordinate geometry, directional skills and much more.
Printed onto hard wearing vinyl, so all of the class can get involved and enjoy the map without the fear of it ripping! A massive 1.2 x 2.1m!
A brilliant cross-curricular resource which combines Mathematics and Geography through basic coordinate geometry and map reading. Section 3E of the Key Stage 2 Mathematics National Curriculum states that children should:
"Understand that one coordinate identifies a point on a number line and two coordinates identify a point in a plane; locate points with given coordinates and find the coordinates of the midpoint of the line segment."
This can easily be achieved by asking children to find the grid reference for Big Ben, or asking the children to place a piece of string between London and Edinburgh and identifying the grid reference for the mid-point of the string.
Size: 210cm x 120cm
