Geography

Grade 4

Map work

Module 7

Large scale maps

1. The World

From this picture we can deduct that the earth is round. A round map of the earth is called a globe.

Have you ever tried to cut open and flatten a deflated ball? That is why most world maps portray the earth as “flat”.

2. Africa (my continent)

  • The continent on which you live, is called ……………………………………….
  • Africa is the second largest continent on earth. Africa consists of 49 countries. A country is a large piece of earth within fixed borders. The borders separate one country from the other.

Activity 1

To read a map of the world [lo 1.5]

Study the map of the world on the previous page and answer the questions.

1. How many continents are there? …………………………………………

2. Which continent is the largest? ……………………………………………

3. Which continent is the smallest?……….……………………………………

4. Which ocean is found between Africa and South America?…………………

Which ocean is found between South America and Australia?

Activity 2

Map work: africa [lo 1.5]

Colour in all the countries on the African continent beginning with an “N” in brown.

1. Colour your country (South Africa) red.

2. Write down the names of the countries that border on South Africa.

A country that borders on another country is called a neighbouring country .

3. South Africa (My land)

  • South Africa lies at the southern tip of the African continent. Like other countries a government that also makes the laws of the country rules South Africa.
  • Look carefully at the map of South Africa.

Within the borders of a country there are other borders that divide the country into provinces.

  • How many provinces are there in South Africa? ..............................
  • Borders are determined by people and can therefore be changed. Until 1994 there were only four provinces.

Activity 3

To answer questions on map work [lo 1.5]

Look carefully at the map key of South Africa and answer the following questions:

1. Which big mountain range do we find in Kwazulu-Natal?

2. Name three minerals that are mined in the Northern Cape.

3. Which province is the farthest north?

4. Which river on the northern border of the Northern Cape flows into the Atlantic Ocean?

5. In which ocean will you be swimming when holidaying in Durban?

6. Which province is the smallest?

7. In which province are you when you are on a holiday in Port Elizabeth?

  1. True / False? The coal mined in Mpumalanga can be exported to other countries by boat

Activity 4

To use information from sources to answer questions about people and places [lo 1.5]

Your educator will hang a wall map of the world in the classroom. Listen to the world news every day and read newspapers. Bring geography articles to class and let your educator indicate with a pin on the wall map on which continent the events occurred. Discuss them and give your own opinion.

TRY TO CONTINUE WITH THIS ASSIGNMENT UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR.

Assessment

Learning outcome 1: geographical enquiry

The learner will be able to use enquiry skills to investigate geographical and

environmental concepts and processes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

1.5 identifies important political boundaries and key human and physical features on large-scale maps [works with sources].
