Geography in the Woods

Forests are great places for studying maps and the physical and human processes that shape our environment. As well as providing opportunities for carrying out fieldwork for geography at all levels, Geography in the Woods is packed full of suggestions.

A beautifully flowing lesson from the Forestry Commission, Geography in the Woods, takes the learner on a woodland journey. From exploring the natural and man-made features of the forest to tree naming; this resource is a wonderful asset.

In an alluring twist, the children can make their map not on paper with pens but using natural materials on the forest floor.

Learning can be extended with a number of activities designed for delivery back in the classroom.
