Education Toolkits

The Drifting Apart project wants to inspire younger generations to explore and understand their local geological history. To help realize this aim field guides for key sites in each area were developed. The field guides are for teachers, although tour guides or special interest groups may also find them informative.

It is hoped that these field guides will provide teachers with the necessary information to bring students out of the class room and to these sites of geological interest. Guides can also be used by schools visiting sites outside of their own area. The guides are broken down into three sections for each site.

The Information Sheet – provides location details, highlights what the visit will contribute to the curriculum, key information or earth processes to be covered before a visit and some key features of the site.

The Teachers Sheet – provides an annotated map of the site and a point by point guide to the site. This includes reference to what you can see at each point and the geological context. Reference to cultural heritage and modern technologies are also made.

A Student Worksheet – a set of activities and questions for students. These are specific and relevant to the site and relate to the information given in the Information and Teacher Sheet.
