Topic - Geography


Geography - Around the world: To understand different time zones

Go through PowerPoint.

Introduce children to the aims of the session, discussing how they will be working on understanding time zones around the world and thinking about why we have different time zones. Discuss with children what GMT is, looking at how long it took to introduce and why it is significant, considering with children why it can’t be the same time of the day across the world at the same time. Following this, look at examples of countries that have more than one-time zone, considering why this is as well as looking at other countries such as China and India who only use one-time zone despite the size of their countries meaning they exceed 15degrees of longitude. Once children are confident with the idea of time zones and why these were created, explain their activities and set them off on these.

Go through PowerPoint again if needed, which will help to explain time zones. Then, attempt the questions from the sheet.
