Exploring Changes in Land Use and the Environment in the Dearne Valley
These resources were developed by Tony Dodsworth (Community Plan Manager, St. Pius X Catholic High School, Wath upon Dearne) and Dean Hughes (Rotherham Development and Investment Office (RIDO)) who brought his Google Earth expertise to the project.
In this exercise students develop a deeper understanding of change in the Dearne Valley over time and the role played by individual people in that change. Students will investigate the lives of five past and present residents of the Dearne Valley. The exercise involves students in individual work and group work. It includes the use of Google Earth along with visual and textual information accessed through place marks on the Dearne Valley area of Google Earth.
