  • Why aren’t there any people?
  • What would you do if you were in one of the buildings?
  • How did the umbrella get there?

  • Research the history of “Big Ben” and write a presentation about it. This site is a good place to start.
  • Before people had mobile phones, the only way to make a telephone call when you were out and about was from a phone box. Make a list of all the different ways we are able to message and call each other today.
  • Find some of the famous buildings shown on a map or Google Earth. Is the picture accurate?
