Year 8 Geography – Microclimate study

28 September 2017

In Geography lessons this fortnight Year 8 students have been investigating the microclimate of the school.

They were using weather recording equipment; such as wind vanes, cloud mirrors, rain gauges, thermometers and anemometers (for wind speed) to measure the weather in different locations around the school. They were investigating how different factors including trees, concrete, grass and proximity to buildings can affect the weather in a given location at a given time. Next, they will be writing up their results in a formal geographic report, which is very similar to a scientific report.

All of this will help them improve their understanding of weather, and will also improve their skills. They have learnt to work as a team, record data accurately, present data in a graph and analyse their results for patterns. These skills are crucial for Geography, and lots of other subjects too.

Great job Year 8!
