Rivers and Environmental Issues KS3

This programme provides pupils with an opportunity to find out about rivers and environmental issues

Session 1

Pupils gain fieldwork skills on the riverside and foreshore by collecting environmental data (depth, velocity, temperature, pH, turbidity and dissolved oxygen), in addition to invertebrate sampling and recording human impacts and key features (meanders, erosion, deposition, transportation, island formation and tides).

Session 2

Pupils will investigate environmental issues and help devise a sustainable future for the river.




Full day programme – 4 hours plus half an hour for lunch. Half day’s available on request.
