Tourism theme or inquiry unit that can lend itself to a wide range of inter-connected activities and makes for a great rich topic at both a local and international level. As pupils examine, contrast and investigate, they can think through their responses to development, needs and purposes throughout history and launch from there into their current world and future. Most pupils will have experienced some form of tourism.
