Students research the likely human and physical processes present at Blackgang and the area. They will record their observations when at the park, focusing on evidence of processes and their impact. On return to school they will draw conclusions from their data.
This is a geography resource that engages students with their visit to Blackgang Chine; it features pre-visit, on-site and post-visit activities. The resource task enables students to develop their knowledge of the physical and human processes taking place in the Blackgang Chine park and environs, e.g. coastal erosion and impact of tourism, etc. The resource promotes pre-visit discussion and research, the use of geographical vocabulary, and post-visit summary of findings and predictions.
Students will learn about the coastal zone and key processes that take place there. They complete the first section of the resource (page 1) completing research and discussions.
