Future Travel - Investigating Sustainable Transport
Future Travel - Investigating Sustainable Transport is a FREE research-based resource created by Centro to engage students in investigating transport issues in their local area.
This KS3 geography and citizenship resource has been designed to help increase students' awareness of how transport systems impact on everyday life and how we can all work together to help make it a more sustainable system for all.
We have created this resource as a series of 9 connected 'lessons', structured into 2 sections: Investigating Sustainable Travel and an HS2 Mini-Study. HS2 is a planned high speed rail network which will have Birmingham at the centre. Proponents say this would help to make the West Midlands far better connected to both London and also to other areas of the country, such as Glasgow and Edinburgh. It will also enable easier access to mainland Europe.
There are 3 main components of the resource:
There is also an editable version of the Students' Workbook, which can be filled in online and saved.
This resource links to and supports Future Travel. This online KS3 resource introduces Network West Midlands and the environmental benefits of sustainable travel.
We hope that you and your students enjoy using this resource and working through the activities provided. There is a Teacher Evaluation Form at the end of the Lesson Plans document and we would be most grateful if you would complete and return this to Centro. Your feedback will help us ensure that we can improve and develop our education programme and supporting resources.
The documents are in PDF format. You need Adobe Reader to view PDF documents.
