For geography this week you will be planning and carrying out fieldwork in your local area.
Task 1: Work through the powerpoint and photo pack to compare death valley and the peak district.
Task 2: Use the maps and resources linked below to plan the fieldwork you are going to carry out. Some examples of this might be:
Sketching key buildings on your route
Collecting samples of soil, plants or rocks
Standing in one place and counting the amount of cars that go by in the space of 5 or 10 minutes and presenting this information on a graph
You could add a weather chart/table and record the weather each day for a week.
You could do some tree rubbings
You could do some rubbings of different surfaces
You could ask your family questions about what it is like to live in the community
Draw your own map of the local area
Task 3: Once you have done your planning you need to carry out your fieldwork. You don't need to do all of the suggestions just some. Please see my example below:
