Humanities: What does Great Britain look like?

We spend most of our time in built up areas (such as housing estates and and commercial centres). Is this what our country is mostly like? FIRST: Watch the video This will help you understand what Great Britain is really like. It is a 100 second piece of footage. Every second filmed shows 1% of how the land is used. There are 32 land uses overall in the film, but only 6 are spoken about. The land uses not mentioned, are not spoken about because they they do not take up a complete 1 second of film footage. 1) Use the to record what the 6 biggest uses of land mentioned in the film are. 2) a response to the notes explaining what you imagine other the other, smaller uses of land could be? 3) Decide if you think we are using the land properly? How much land do you think we should be giving to housing etc? Record your thoughts and opinions on how we are using our land. Should we be giving more over to nature? What types of land could be given back to nature? For example, explain; How much land you think should be given for industrial areas? How much land you think should be left as forest? How much land you think should be left as woodland? etc.
