Year 5 topic planning South America

Year 5 topic planning South America

Here is my personal medium term planning for South America topic covered in year 5. I have colour coded all of the relevant NC links that are covered throughout this topic as well as provided some initial Learning Challenge questions to generate class or group discussions. Feel free to adapt it to suit your needs as it is completely editable. Ideal for someone new to the year group who needs a bit of a starting point. I have also included a SMART presentation that I made to support one of the sessions. I hope this proves to be useful.

THE TONLE SAP LAKE AND RIVER OF CAMBODIA -AN INLAND WATER STUDY

THE TONLE SAP LAKE AND RIVER OF CAMBODIA -AN INLAND WATER STUDY

Potentially this unit has multiple uses across age ranges from primary to secondary levels in geography and environmental studies. The lake and connecting river have rather unique hydrology in significant variations in water level and reverses flows of the Tonle Sap River linking the lake with the Mekong River. One suggested approach is to use this as an information gathering tutorial so that students can fill-in the worksheet (at the end of the unit) as the pages are screened. This unit supports the Australian geography curriculum at senior levels - Unit 1 - Natural and ecological hazards (flooding); Unit 2 - Sustainable places - Year 6 - Asia - geographical diversity; Year 10 Asia - Inland water study. The very large Tonle Sap Lake is the largest freshwater lake in SE Asia and supports about 2 million people around its perimeter. It also has historical significance because the presence of this lake and the in-flowing Siem Reap River had relevance for the locating of the large sandstone cities within the Angkor region during the development of the Khmer Empire. Join the trip along the Tonle Sap River. Cross the Tonle Sap Lake and gain some understanding of the importance of this inland water system for the people of Cambodia. The attached worksheets in general and pdf form are essential additions if you choose to treat this resource material as a tutorial.
