Geographical features of Iceland
Stick your copy of the map into the centre of an A3 piece of plain paper.
Now go online at www.visiticeland.com/discovericeland/regions the official tourism information website of Iceland.
Use the website to find the geographical characteristics of each region and then annotate (add notes around the edge of the map and indicate with an arrow which region is being described) your map with just its key features e.g. geysers, fishing ports, glaciers, geothermal power stations, puffin colonies, fjords etc.
MFL and Geography day
The French language has approximately 80 million native speakers, as well as 190 million secondary speakers, meaning that around 270 million people speak the language worldwide. It is an official language in 29 countries, with most of these being part of the community of French-speaking nations known as la francophonie. It is estimated that around 12 percent of the European Union's population speaks French as a mother tongue, making it the fourth most widely-spoken European language. Furthermore, 20 percent of EU citizens report knowing how to speak French, making it the third most understood language in the continent. With that being said, the language's reach extends far beyond Europe and, in actual fact, the largest share of the world's French-speaking population reside in Africa. Moreover, French is recognised as an official language of several global institutions, including the United Nations, NATO and the World Trade Organization.
