Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to define the term ‘land use’ and state examples of the main categories of land use, giving some examples from each. Students will learn how to interpret land use information on OS maps. Students will learn how to make observations about land use in a fieldwork situation. The ‘comparison’ part of the task will lead students to summarise the differences between a 1920s/1930s village and their own local area. Those who live in villages today will observe a stark difference between retail and transport of old, compared with the current day. Those who live in urban areas will observe the differences between traditional village dwelling and their modern town/city lives.
