Concepts for developing understanding

The content in the geography sub-strand provides opportunities to develop students’ understanding of place, space, environment and change. Students learn about the natural, managed and constructed features of places and how these features provide evidence of change (place, environment, change). Students understand that important activities are located in places and explore where they are located, and why (space). Students study the daily and seasonal weather patterns of their place and of other places, including how seasonal change is perceived by different cultures (place, environment). They come to understand how places are cared for (environment).

Inquiry Questions

  • What are the different features of places?
  • How can we care for places?
  • How have the features of places changed?
