Tuesday - South America Project

Today you’ll continue to learn about how to use secondary sources e.g. internet, books, maps to find out about South America. You’ll remember that we saw primary sources when we visited Imperial War Museum, London and also some original letters from men who fought during WWI.


This week you will continue to find out about South America. I have heard about lots of really interesting ways you have been researching your information and also presenting it!
