Making a Living in a Glaciated Landscape Part 1 - AQA GCSE

Making a Living in a Glaciated Landscape Part 1 - AQA GCSE

This presentation gets students thinking about how hard it might be to make a living in an environment such as Snowdonia or the Lake District National Park. It looks at the challenges of two activities in particular: sheep farming in the Welsh Hills, where the physical landscape is the main issue and forestry in Cumbria where conflict between ramblers, mountain bikers and horse riders has to be managed. There are, as ever, a number of tasks for groups and individuals and a review from a rather angry walker who let rip on Trip Adviser to which students must respond as if they were a warden at Winlatter Forest.
