That Blue Square Thing - Geography Revision

Unit 8 Outline - Tourism and Landforms

WARNING! These pages are now very old. They were last updated in 2008 and the content applies to an old version of any geography syllabus currently active in the UK.
I've kept them here because there might be something useful for someone and the general marking principles aren't all that different. But be aware that it's old and out of date (the stuff on the Google Earth page in particular may not work at all)

This unit deals with the ways in which tourists are attracted by the natural environment and their impacts on it. That's why the physical processes that create landforms are included - so you need to make sure that you've revised erosion and deposition as well.

Key Content:

Major Case Studies:

Make sure that you can say why people are attracted to areas of natural landscapes. The Lake District is easy for this - the hills, cliffs, valleys, lakes, rivers and woods are the basic attraction for the area.
