The SuperSchemes series provides primary teachers with the means to develop geography units of work with confidence. Each book starts with:
  • advice and guidance on how to approach the topic
  • an explanation of the geography rooted in the unit
  • background information to get you started.
The whole suggested unit is laid out in the medium term plan, which is followed by detailed and resourced lesson plans for two lessons. Further ideas for developing the remaining four lessons in the unit complete the book and provide you with a springboard to take your geography teaching further.

This resource will enable all primary teachers to teach good geography about the local area, through effective but manageable fieldwork and classroom ideas that can be easily applied to an investigation of any town. The unit of six lessons aims to help pupils to observe, measure and record the human and physical features of a local town, using a range of methods including photographs, sketch maps, plans, graphs and digital technology. They will use fieldwork to explore land use, environmental quality and traffic issues, practise good fieldwork techniques that they can undertake with confidence, and learn how to record, analyse and present their findings.

Resources, including activity sheets, PowerPoint presentation and a copy of the medium term plan, are available to download using your password included with the book.
