This amazing resource will lead young learners around the
world on a whirlwind tour. You and your students will visit 49 famous
landmarks, both natural and built, such as the Great Pyramid, the Taj Mahal,
Stonehenge, Machu Picchu, the Great Barrier Reef and many more!
Every structure visited in Famous Landmarks is introduced through an initial information page
that gives important geographical information about the landmark. 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 landmark 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
