Secondary Geography. Fieldwork. Fieldwork is an essential component of geography education.

Fieldwork

It enables pupils to better understand the ‘messiness’ of ‘geographical reality’, develop subject knowledge, and gain a range of skills that are difficult to develop in the classroom alone.

It also aids motivation and self-development. This resource aims to help teachers to introduce and develop fieldwork with students in both primary and second schools. It acts as a portal to existing resources on this and other websites, rather than as a self contained programme of guidance and activities. In each section we have listed useful resources along with introductory text to help you find the most useful materials for your needs.
