On Tuesday, IB Geography 5YL students went on a field trip to Colonia del Sacramento to investigate the impact of tourism.
The day was glorious and the historic quarter was busy with tourists from all over the world, although the preliminary results of their questionnaires show that the majority were Brazilian and Argentinian.
The students also investigated differences in environmental quality, prices and congestion throughout the World Heritage site.
The results of this fieldwork activity will be used for their Internal Assessments.
A big thank you to Waldemar Chávez and Mario Perera for their invaluable support during this filed trip!
