RE trails: investigating a local area for evidence of the impact of religion and religious life both now and in the past.
An RE trail is a Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) experience which involves investigating a locality for evidence of the impact of religion and religious life both in the past and the present.
A trail could focus on a single religion or touch on several. It might include examples of the interior and exterior of buildings as well as other features in the built and natural environment.
This website considers the value of an RE trail, provides a toolkit for developing your own trail and examples of trails which you could do with students or use as a model. Finally, there are links to other trails and useful websites.
