Acclimatised Civilisations – Inquiry Project

PDF | 14 pages|Grades: 2 - Upper - 6

A Geography inquiry investigation for students to research a civilisation and how they adapted to their environment and landscape.

This teaching resource is a Geography inquiry investigation for students to choose a civilisation that is at least 500 years old. Students will need to research why their civilisation settled in the location, what challenges they faced, and how they adapted to the environmental conditions.

This inquiry project encourages students to use their decision-making skills to craft questions and make learning choices. Teachers will need to monitor students progress and provide opportunities for advice through conferencing.

Using their mapping skills, students will need to correctly illustrate and label the country/location of their civilisation.

The inquiry project presentation will depend on the agreement between teacher and students.
