1º British: Webquest on the climates of Spain

Spain is a privileged country, enjoying a wide variety of climates, and precisely this variety makes possible amazing contrasts between the different landscapes.

Each group must choose a type of climate (continental, oceanic, mediterranean, subtropical or mountain) and complete a study on it, including in which areas of Spain is located, what features it has (temperature, rain…), how is its landscape...

Each group should prepare a Word document, which can also include maps and photos of the chosen climate landscape.

When finished, make sure you have signed the document (name and grade) and saved it as a .Doc file (to avoid problems with different versions of Word), and please send it to the email address

To start your research, you can check the following websites:

In English: you can read many information about Spanish landscapes and Iberian wildlife tour.

In Spanish you have two interesting interactive websites at Libros vivos España and Libros vivos Europa, by SM.

Good luck with this task!

3º British: Mapping the world

Here you have the link to download the Unit 1 of Geography: Maps and Cartography. As I told you in class, it is a very heavy file (244MB), so be patient... And if a message from Google is displayed about not being possible to check if the file has viruses, please ignore it and download the file anyway; that is again because the file is really big and the file is 100% free of virus.

And here you have the Weekly Work: Londonderry topographical map.
