World Environmental Regions

This week we would like you to identify different environmental regions on a world map. These are PHYSICAL FEATURES (natural and not made by humans) such as rivers, rainforests, lakes, mountains, deserts and volcanoes. Your first task is to find out more about each feature using the BBC bite size link below. Maybe you could draw a picture for each and write some notes? Once you have done this, download and print the blank world map. Shade in the following on your map with a different colour. Can you label them too? Feel free to shade in more! Use Google Earth to help you.
