EUROPE: PHYSICAL FEATURES (Unit 10-Science Y6)

Let's move onto a new topic in our Science lessons we are going to study Europe and its features: physical and political ones.

First of all we are going to look for PHYSICAL FEATURES, secondly we will learn about CLIMATES, thirdly we will have a look to POPULATION AND DIVERSITY and we will finish with the EUROPEAN UNION.

Let's start with the PHYSICAL FEATURES OF EUROPE.

Have a look to this picture and try to answer the questions:

  • Where are the majority of mountain chains in Europe?
  • Which are the three longest rivers?
  • Which is the highest mountain?

This video may clarify some concepts about Geography of Europe with some photos and explanations.

Physical features of Europe.
  1. The Great European Plain:  From the Pyrenees to the Ural Mountains.
  2. Mountains: Most of them are in the South like the Alps or the Balkans.
  3. Compact groups of mountains: These are called plateaus, like the Central Plateau in Spain, or massifs, like the Central Massif in France.
  4. Peninsulas: (A piece of land which is almost completely sourrounded by water) like the Scandinavian or the Iberian.
  5. Islands: Like Iceland or the British Islands.
