Pupils from the Shetland Islands were able to investigate the geology and environment of their home landscape – and how to conserve it – on a field trip to the North Mainland, at the site of an ancient supervolcano!
Learning about local geology.
A teachers’ pack of information and an accompanying pupils’ challenge pack was produced to guide the trip and to provide a good source of learning and evaluation for us. In the second year we hope to study the biodiversity of the North Isles of Shetland and in the third to examine the geology and human use of the landscape in the South Mainland of Shetland. For more information, see the school’s website.
