Year 7 - Unit 1 and Year 7 - Unit 2 have been specifically written for Year 7 students studying Geography in Australia. The books have been written by the same author and are both part of the Australian Geography Series which comprises nine books in total. Year 7 - Unit 2 is divided into six sections which clearly link to the new Australian National Curriculum for Geography. As students complete the activities in this book, they will learn to describe the significance, interconnection and characteristics of places, and identify the relationships between these. They will use concepts relating to location, distribution and pattern, to describe their observations and findings. Each activity sheet is designed to engage the students and help them to develop an appreciation of why people live where they do. Students will be encouraged to develop Geography skills by: observing, questioning, planning, collecting, evaluating, processing, analysing, interpreting and drawing conclusions.
