The climax of Year 7’s unit of work on landscapes. Thanks to Alan Parkinson for the original idea of Landscape in a Box. We made use of Alan’s super KS3 Geographer’s Toolkit publication “Look At It This Way” The landscape assessment was completed over half term. More able students included location maps and detailed research notes as part of their work.All students were able to access the task, though possibly the instructions could have been differentiated better.
