There are 15 National Parks in Britain and 6 in Ireland. Some of them you will already know because they are mountain areas but you get landscapes worth protecting in lowland areas too.
So once again print out a blank outline map. You can use the one below.
The best way to learn where things are is to put them on a map, but if I just give you a completed map, that won’t help much, so grab a blank map and a pencil, find somebody for a bit of competition, and let’s see what you know already. Just put the numbers onto your blank map.
- Brecon Beacons
- Lake District
- Loch Lomond and the Trossachs
- New Forest
- North York Moors
- Peak District
- Pembrokeshire Coast
- South Downs
- Yorkshire Dales
- The Burren
- Wicklow Mountains
Now scroll past my pictures for a look at the answers. If you are having a competition, two points for a correct answer and if no-one is right, then the nearest person gets one point.
If you are signed up for worksheets, check your inbox for a map of the correct locations, ready for you to label.
And finally an interesting fact. In July 2019, London became the world’s first National Park city. That brings a whole new perspective to the idea of a National Park.
