TLF ID S6440
This resource provides learning strategies and sequenced activities to develop geographical terminology and encourage the use of geographical tools as students describe and compare the natural and human characteristics of places. A collection of photographs is included in the resource as stimulus material. Part 1 examines perceptions of place and develops geographical terminology to describe the local environment. Part 2 introduces geographical tools such as images, maps and data to objectively describe features of a location. Parts 3 and 4 focus on further investigation and development of geographical terminology using a range of data sources. In Part 5 students research a place significantly different to their own place. This section also offers an extension activity where students investigate a place in the Asia-Pacific region and compare it to an Australian place they have already researched.
