Stage 2 Geography Term 4

Students have been off and travelling to our neighbours, the classrooms in Stage 2 have been transformed into aeroplanes as we all fly to New Zealand, Fiji, Torres Strait Islands and beyond. 

 


Places are similar and different

In Term 3 students examined natural and human features of Australia. In collaborative groups they researched each state and created a presentation to the class. This term brings a very exciting Amazing Race to Stage 2. The students will explore the diverse characteristics of Australia’s neighbouring countries. They will explore the different climates, settlement patterns and demographic characteristics of places and use this information to imagine what it would be like to live in different places. Students will consider how people’s perceptions of places are the basis for actions to protect places and environments.
