Inspiring areas of geographical study

Geography teachers are often the most inspiring of teachers as they get to share truly wonderful information. Who could fail to be impressed when thinking about a billion people living in India, or that there is 120,000 years worth of ice on the Greenland ice sheet.

So many people link a life long interest in the subject to a great teacher they used to have at school. Make sure you are that geography teacher by taking your class on a visit that will live long in their memory. You will be providing an excellent opportunity for them to gain first hand experiences through geographical enquiry that encourages them to investigate and think critically about what they are seeing. When related to work in the classroom, a geographical field trip will help make the curriculum more meaningful. Many of the venues we list offer tried and tested workshops, or even tailor the visit to suit your lesson plans.

We have split our geography school visits between physical and human geography, though there is certainly some crossover. We have also added a category for climate and energy, reflecting the growing importance in the themes and the associated demand for relevant field trips.

Primary Geography

At primary school level, from Early Years through to Key Stage 2, the study of geography as a subject is all about learning about the world we live in in terms of where we are and how places change over time. The scale of the subject and all the possible topics that you can teach can be overwhelming. You may have a very specific physical geography topic in mind, such a the study of climate zones, volcanoes and earthquakes or extreme weather. Perhaps for your human geography topic you are looking at human environments, settlements and land use, or economic activity. Take a look at the relevant section above for plenty more ideas for primary school geography trips and workshops.

Secondary Geography

By the time students get to Key Stage 3 and 4, they should have a good grasp of the broader aspects of geography and classwork can begin digging deeper in to various subject areas, especially the interactions between human and physical geography. We work with a variety of UK specialists who can teach geographical topics to GCSE and beyond. Take a look at the subject areas above to discover a wealth of teaching resources, searchable by Key Stage and location.
