In July I am taking a combined group of IB and A Level geographers to Minehead in North Somerset for a week.
The accommodation is booked (we are staying at the youth hostel); however the rest of the programme is currently blank.
We are traveling early Monday morning from Essex and returning Friday. I am looking for stops on the way as well as ideas for the fieldwork days.
On Monday to Thursday this week I am doing a planning and preparatory visit so am looking for any suggestions for ideas for Geographical fieldwork in that region.
I have not been to that part of the country recently but my list of places to check out so far are:
- Looking at the coastal resort of Minehead and sea defences
- Impact of Tourism in the National Park
The International Baccalaureate Geographers need to complete a traditional fieldwork report and the A Level Geographers need to be able to answer AQA exam 4a; the rest is to expose the students to geography ‘in the field’.
I would he grateful for any suggestions of ideas for fieldwork in that locality. I will publish the plan on this blog nearer the time.
If you have a chance please give me your ideas either via twitter @gceyre or as a comment on this post!
