Students record geographical information after observing a video of a Year 3 student from country NSW describing the natural and human features of her local environment. They use a table to present their findings and discuss the similarities and differences between their place and another place in Australia.
Students construct a Venn Diagram to identify similarities and differences of natural and human features in different places.They reflect on their learning by writing a letter to a child from a neighbouring country inviting them to visit and informing them of the similarities and differences they will notice.
The geographical tools included in this unit are mapping and visual representations.
What would it be like to live in a different place?
