Lay of the Land

How can we better preserve important landscapes for future generations to enjoy?

Students must analyse a focus landscape to determine how it was formed and the processes that are still shaping it today.


They should consider to what extent the landscape is being shaped or changed due to human influences and what the consequences of future degradation might be.


They must develop a solution to reverse the damage before it is too late! 


Key tasks

  • Landscape modelling. Students must create a physical model that can both represent their focus landscape and landforms but must also evidence and demonstrate the forces that shaped that landscape 

  • Exploring human impact. Students must explore the impact that humans are having on the landscape, either through use or through other forces (like coastal erosion) driven by human activity
