    It would be fantastic to have a resource like this for Natural, Constructed and Managed environments for year 2 students.

    My students loved these. It would be even better if the features were mixed up – so they had to sort them out even more (some of my super clever ones figured out all the natural features were on one page and the human features were on the other page! 🙂

      Hi there Kelly. I’m glad your students enjoyed this activity. That’s a good suggestion about mixing up the features… the clever ones do seem to find shortcuts, don’t they!

    Kelly’s suggestion is great. It would be better if the features were mixed up so the students can sort them. Can this resource be differentiated to allow this?
