Bright Lights, Big City In the Bright Lights, Big City project
In the Bright Lights, Big City, we will learn about Queen Elizabeth II and the countries that make up the United Kingdom, including their location, capital cities and some of their physical and human features. We will have the opportunity to do map work, using compasses and positional and directional language to plan routes around London. We will research the cause and impact of the Great Fire of London and look at some famous London landmarks. We will learn about other capital cities around the world, including Kuala Lumpur, and compare how they are similar and different to London.
