Each of our S2 Geography classes have been out to visit the River Gynack to take measurements in depth, width and to time how long a ball took to float 10m.
They are learning both gathering and processing skills that will be useful in their Added Value Unit in National 4 and 5 Geography.
Working in groups of four, they carried out their measurements and on return to the classroom they worked on their results to produce a cross section of their part of the river.
The second part of their exercise was to calculate the speed of the river using time and distance. Like all subjects, Geography is responsible for working on numeracy with pupils.
