A palaeogeography in your school yard

The new ELI today is 'Playground continents; a palaeogeography in your school yard'.

In this Earthlearningidea, pupils are asked to match a set of specimens or photographs to their probable location on a map of an imaginary continent, drawn on the playground surface or on paper in the classroom.
This topic provides an excellent link between evidence in the geological record for former climatic regimes and modern geography. It could well be run in liaison between the science and the geography departments.
For more activities related to Palaeoenvironments, please refer to our Teaching strategies, the alphabetical index or use the search engine on our website.
