Description

This amazing resource will lead young learners around the
world on a whirlwind tour. You and your students will visit 57 fascinating
cities around the world, from Budapest to Sydney, Shanghai to Istanbul, Cairo
to La Paz, and beyond.


Every place explored in Fascinating
Cities
is introduced through an initial information page that gives
important geographical information about the city. This page contains a few
questions, some of which may be answered by carefully reading the page, while
others require further research. Vocabulary words are printed in bold type to highlight
an avenue of study that might need to be researched. Every city also features
four projects in a different learning area or skill set, supporting the
integration of geography education with learning in other subjects. A third
activity page offers a variety of smaller activities – research projects,
mazes, crosswords and creative writing or drawing exercises.


A perfect complement for your Australian Curriculum-aligned
study of world geography, this exciting book is designed to encourage students
to use their natural curiosity to explore culture, research different ways of
life and create projects based on what they learn. Using the material from this
book, your Years 4–6 students will learn to make connections to the real world,
visit intriguing places and discover history, art, architecture, maths,
language and science as well as geography.


Circling the World:
Fascinating Cities

includes information sheets, websites and activities that offer investigative
learning ideas, higher-level thinking questions, engaging art projects and
interesting research opportunities to excite your students.
