Geography- Beyond the Magic Kingdom: What is the Sunshine State really like?

  • This enquiry is designed to enable pupils to gain an understanding of the physical and human
    geographical features of a region in North America with which they can begin to compare and
    contrast the characteristics of a region of the United Kingdom. It begins by focusing on aspects
    of leisure and tourism with which pupils may be familiar both in the United Kingdom and
    overseas. Some may even have direct experience of visiting Florida and the Magic Kingdom.
    The objective of the investigation is to take the pupils beyond that with which they may be
    familiar and introduce them to different aspects of Florida’s physical and human geography.
