Field Trips

As a Geography Teacher, you may want to lead field trips for your students. If you are looking for inspiration, then the Quaternary Research Association has a series of field guides available for purchase from their website. They are affordable and cover many areas of the UK.

The QRA is the UK organisation for the study of the Quaternary. It is a friendly association of academics, graduate students and interested members of the public. There are many school teacher members, and school teachers are very welcome to join.

The QRA field guides contain information about the Quaternary history of the site, including glaciation. Want to lead a field trip to Gower or Norfolk? There’s a guide for that. Want to visit Teesdale or the Pennines? There’s a guide for that. These excellent resources provide all the information you need to run a field trip. Members get a discount on the list price.
