This unit of work was designed for the Australian Geography Curriculum. However it can be tailored to suit other nations' outcomes.
The geographical inquiry process will investigate the location and geographical characteristics of Australia’s neighbouring countries. This includes the investigation of the natural characteristics of a country in Asia in the content area: Different environments in the focus area: The Earth’s environment.
Through investigation of a geographical issue, students will examine the interconnections between people’s perceptions and the protection of a significant cultural site.
The learning is shaped by three inquiries, which vary in length.
Note: The capacity of students to engage with Inquiry 2 will be much greater at the end of Year 4 than the start of Year 3. Teachers will need to adjust and scaffold learning activities as appropriate. Teachers can choose whether the cultural study is undertaken by the whole class, or as individuals, pairs or groups.
