Autumn 2 - Road Trip USA

Topic Overview

Buckle up and put your sunglasses on - this half term we're going on a road trip across the USA!

We'll start by 'visiting' the states where Native American tribes settled. We'll use travel brochures and the internet to research New York and write postcards to family members. Using maps, we'll locate the USA and find the names of the states. We'll look at the amazing lights of Times Square, make circuits and create a program for a tourist trip around New York. We'll write diaries and explore Native American myths. After learning about their cultural significance, we'll weave beautiful dreamcatchers. Looking at aerial views of natural landmarks, we'll think about how they might have been formed. We'll also create travel brochures and make illuminated models of different landmarks.
