An Environmental Field Studies programme at Kingswood can be designed to include the use of our adventure activities to further your students’ confidence and communication skills.
For each investigation, the students are guided through the geographical enquiry process. Before heading out into the field they recap the topic and learn the techniques they are going to use, with specific focus on why that technique helps them answer their enquiry question and what limitations might they face. Whilst out in the field they will visit specific locations and collect primary data that they can present back in the classroom. On returning to centre students are guided through data presentation and analysis, using various graphs as well as GIS Software. Students can also be guided in evaluating their methods, data presentation or even their investigation as a whole, as well as drawing conclusions.
Our follow up sessions can be tailored to flow seamlessly with your plan on returning to school, as all work completed by the students is made available to you upon your departure.
