What can we find out about life in Istanbul?

Front cover Istanbul topic

Our project about Istanbul is a great scheme of work for Key Stage 2 geography. It can be used in Years 3-5 with adaptations to the needs of the particular class.
This project comes complete with:

• detailed planning
• lots of support for teachers - PowerPoint presentations, resource sheets, marking stickers (a sample PowerPoint is attached)
• photos to use in the classroom
• cross-curricular links

Everything is provided electronically to enable teachers to make relevant adaptations for the children in their classes.
