  • Challenge children to answer the questions about Hopeville included on the activity sheet.
  • Ask pupils to come up with their own questions about the places shown on the map.
  • Look at a variety of maps (at different scales) and discuss the information that they show.
  • Get pupils to make their own maps of real and fictional places.
