Year 12 (nearly 13’s….) Introduction to cold environments

Hello all

First blog post for the geography department – pushing the boundaries of technology in UVHS….

The first lesson on Cold Environments (Mr Mitchell’s lessons) was spent looking briefly at geological timescale and focusing specifically on the Quaternary – Pleistocene and Holocene.

The links to the tasks that were completed in the lesson should be available through this hyperlink which will take you to the UVHS geography Google Drive website. The reading for this lesson came from the legendary geography tome that is Geography – an integrated approach. David Waugh, Pages 90-91 and a number of photocopied sheets which are pre-digital technology. The Powerpoint was adapted from the Geography NING.

If the link does not work for any reason please contact Mr Monteith.






Information, resources and links for A level and GCSE geographers at UVHS. Some of the content has been adapted from resources on the Edexcel Geography Ning – we are exceedingly grateful and hope this blog works to provide ideas and support for other Geography teachers as well as pupils.
