Fieldwork Fieldwork is an essential component of geography education. 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. However, the value is not simply the ‘geographical’ value of experiencing such things as landscape features, busy urban streets and unfamiliar cultures which helps ground the pupils’ local environment in the context of the global. 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. In each section we have listed useful resources along with introductory text to help you find the most useful materials for your needs. ‘The environment is at the heart of everything we do and we believe being outside in different habitats offers exciting challenges that students may not otherwise get the opportunity to experience.
