In this unit students explore landscapes and common features of local environments. The unit assists the use and development of geographical inquiry and skills outlined in the Australian Curriculum. Learning begins by examining students’ natural environment. Students identify natural versus man-made features. This is extended though a literacy recount writing task. Students then observe and analyse different types of landscapes – beach, city, rural and country. Students identify the distinct features of these landscapes. To close the unit, students create an information report that summarises learning throughout the entire unit, giving students an opportunity to reflect on the geographical features of their own location. Worksheets, templates, PowerPoint, and Assessment Rubrics.
