Remember the snow… Landform features.

It was only a week ago since this…


Until this happened.


I set my Year 10 the task of producing snow stack formation as a voluntary homework. I set an example by having a go myself.


It also gave me the opportunity to test out the IMotion time-lapse app.

A couple of students, working in groups, rose to the challenge.

    I would give number 3 my vote – but they are all fantastic. I am seriously impressed. Great job, year 10 geographers!

    Great effort by all, but Snow pic 3 wins my vote 🙂

    Stack 1 for me as it looks like it’s about to collapse. Well done Geographers!

    These are wonderful! I wish I’d had the creativity to get my students to do great work like this. Clearly a great group of students – wonder if I’ll get to meet you all at the GA Conference in Derby?! Well done y’all!

    […] Of course I like a model, pop-ups being the favourite (glacial features in the pipeline) and more recently the use of Lego. If I can get food in as well I’m happy, so I’m also a fan of the population jelly babies game and modelling landform features with cake (or snow if available). […]
