This amazing resource will lead young learners around the
world on a whirlwind tour. You and your students will visit 36 incredible
national parks from across the globe, encountering everything from rivers and
rainforests to deserts and dinosaur bones.
Each park description is followed by an activity which
students can complete to learn more about the geography of that park. Many of
the activities involve a different learning area or skill set, supporting the
integration of geography education with learning in other subjects. At the bottom of each activity page are
websites that also relate to the activity, which will help the teacher to
extend the activity and relate it to sites closer to home.
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:
includes information sheets, websites and activities that offer investigative
learning ideas, higher-level thinking questions, engaging art projects and
