GEOGRAPHY INTERNET PROJECT
The following Geography project is
being undertaken by my students in September 1998. I am actively
looking for other teachers in different Global climatic regions to
duplicate the same project which will effectively be a study of your
own local area, with a detailed case study of a specific aspect of
Agriculture/Industry typical of your area.
The following are the general headings
under which the project could be studied.
Due to the mild moist climate in
Ireland I have chosen as our Case Study a typical Dairy farm.(
photograph on this page was taken only a few hundred yards from the
school) This being the main economic activity in our local area. I
would intend to include a visit (field trip) to the chosen farm with
the students. Digital photographs would be taken to illustrate points
made in their written work and later on used in the web site.
3.Natural Flora and
6.Any other local
items of interest
1. Each student will be expected to complete a
2. An agreed report based on their own
Geography reports will be made up into a web page and posted onto the
school web site.
It would be essential that each school
trade completed projects to give a Global context to the project.
This could be via
a)Web page b) E-mail c) Snail
I would love as part of the project
twin the students with other students also doing the same project via
e-mail. My classes of 24/25 students are all girl students aged 12-15
years old.I would envisage sending the e-mails perhaps every 2-3
weeks en bloc. Content of the e-mails could relate to the project in
hand but general teen chat would be allowed as well to encourage the
students to learn the diverse nature of other people and regions in
If you are interested could you e-mail
me as soon as possible and I will put up the participating schools on
this web page
