This lesson aims to allow students to conduct fieldwork based around the coast. This lesson contains 3 individual lessons:
Lesson 1 is a preparation lesson, where students think about what could be investigated at a coastal location, what methods and sampling could be used, in addition to coming up with a hypothesis. This lesson would need to be followed by conducting the fieldwork in a coastal location. Included in this lesson is an activity book that can used at a coastal location with groynes.
Lesson 2 is an assessment based lesson which gets students to present their findings, analyse their findings, before drawing conclusions of their findings.
Lesson 3 is then the feedback element where students are encouraged to improve their fieldwork skills.
NOTE - This lesson is based around Southend but is easily adaptable for any location with a groyne. Also note that MG03 is based around AO4 on the GCSE specification, but this has been reduced to what is expected from a year 8 student.
