Key Stage 2
Natural landscapes and local architecture
Explore the meadows and moorland of Dartmoor and take a closer look at the local architecture. Opportunities for cross-curricular working from science to art. Focus on transportation: how has Dartmoor been affected by transport changes in and around it?
Stone Age to Bronze Age
Life in a Bronze Age hut: experience how it would have felt and look at the tools and pottery used.
Rocks and soils
Take a look for yourself at some of the rocks and minerals found on the moor and ask how they were extracted. What does the inside of a mine look like? What does a miner look like? Investigate the geology and how the landscape has changed.

How did the people of Dartmoor entertain themselves? What local traditions still exist? Have you seen a squeeze box or tried step dancing? What hobbies and crafts have Dartmoor people practised over the years?
