This Nuffield Working with Science unit featured a range of activities related to a farm visit. Students activities involve careful observation and recording, surveys and formulation of opinions based on evidence.
Guidance for teachers and technicians appears in Teachers’ Notes E.
The unit was revised and republished for the CPVE edition of the project in the 1980s. Guidance for this version appears in the Tutors’ Handbook.

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
