An Environmental Investigation Around The School

This is one of my favourite units with my students as it is predominantly student led which helps build confidence, trust, and responsibility as they work in groups outside of the classroom, independently from the teacher.

The unit walks the students through carrying out an investigation around their school breaking down the different components (Introduction, Aim, Hypothesis, Method, Presenting Data, Discussion, Conclusion and Evaluation), explaining the purpose of each, the expected length and giving some sentence starter suggestions. The unit concludes with the student’s peer assessing each other’s group presentations of their investigations.

This resource includes the student workbooks, a class PowerPoint presentation and a booklet describing different graphs and their uses which can aid the students in their data presentation.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
