Aerial View


What do you notice about all the above photographs?   They are all aerial views, this means they were taken from a plane/satellite in the sky.  Today I would like you to use the PDF titled Aerial View to investigate maps using aerial views.  Can you answer the following questions once you have read and investigated the PDF.


What is meant by 'bird's eye view'?

Who might find aerial views useful?

How is an aerial view different from the view we see normally?


I have attached two activities that the PDF asks you to complete to check your understanding.
