N5 / Higher Geography Fieldwork
During the week beginning the 11th October 2021, Higher, Advanced Higher and N5 Geography pupils went out to conduct fieldwork along the River Don. They started at the source of a tributary of the River Don at the Lecht and then measured various river characteristics to see how they changed as they moved downstream. The pupils also completed annotated field sketches; allowing them to apply their knowledge from class to a river and glacial landscape. Higher and AH pupils also had a go at some soil sampling techniques, including depth, colour, texture and infiltration rate.
