Before their visit to the Isle of Wight, students will learn / revise the meaning of the term ‘land use’ and the main categories of land use. When on-site, students will then look for examples of how land use is depicted at The Model Village, and can compare this with their own local area.
This is a geography resource that engages students with their visit to The Model Village Godshill.
Before their visit to the Isle of Wight, students will learn / revise the meaning of the term ‘land use’ and categories of land use. They
will match images to the correct category to practise applying their understanding of the geographical terms. They will also learn how to interpret OS maps in order to identify different types of land use.
When on-site, students will then look for examples of how land use is depicted at The Model Village, and can compare this with their own local area.
The pre-visit activity is pretty self-explanatory; it guides students gradually through the concept of land use from understanding what the term means, and looking at the main categories of land use, to applying their understanding in the image-sorting exercise. It then takes it to the next level by introducing OS maps and students will learn to identify different types of land use on a variety of different map extracts.
The on-site activities then focus on students working collaboratively to make observations of land use in the field.
Key Skills Practised
Understanding key processes in human geography (land use)
Geographical skills of observation, analysing images and using maps to locate and transfer information
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.
