Geography - 5Es.docx

GEOGRAPHY OVERVIEW, TERM 4 (suggested)Unit Title:

How do different cultures (people) use and influence their environments?

(2 Mini Units 18-20 hrs total- Part 1 Weeks 1-5, Part 2 Weeks 5-10)

Achievement Standard

By the end of Year 5, studentsexplainthe characteristics of places in different locations at the national scale. Theydescribethe interconnections between people, places and environments andidentifythe effect of these interconnections on the characteristics of places and environments. Theydescribethe location of selected countries in relative terms andidentifyspatial distributions and simple patterns in the features of places and environments. Theyidentifyalternative views on how to respond to a geographical challenge and propose a response.

Studentsdevelopgeographical questions toinvestigateand collect and record information from a range of sources to answer these questions. Theyrepresentdata and the location of places and their characteristics in graphic forms, including large-scale and small-scale maps that use the cartographic conventions of border, scale, legend, title, and north point. Students interpret geographical data toidentifyspatial distributions, simple patterns and trends, infer relationships and draw conclusions. They present findings using geographical terminology in a range of communication forms. They propose action in response to a geographical challenge andidentifythe expected effects of their proposed action.

Geographical Knowledge and Understanding

The location of the major countries of Europe and North America in relation to Australia and the influence of people on the environmentalcharacteristics of placesin at least two countries from both continents(ACHGK026)

The influence of people, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, on the environmental characteristics of Australian places (ACHGK027)

The influence of theenvironmenton the human characteristics of aplace(ACHGK028)

The influence people have on the humancharacteristics of placesand the management of spaces within them(ACHGK029)

Geographical Inquiry and Skills

Observing, questioning and planning

1. Develop geographical questions to investigate and plan an inquiry (ACHGS033)

Collecting, recording, evaluating and representing

1. Collect and record relevant geographical data and information, using ethical protocols, from primary and secondary sources, for example, people, maps, plans, photographs, satellite images, statistical sources and reports (ACHGS034)

2. Evaluate sources for their usefulness and represent data in different forms, for example, maps, plans, graphs, tables, sketches and diagrams (ACHGS035)

3. Represent the location and features of places and different types of geographical information by constructing large-scale and small-scale maps that conform to cartographic conventions, including border, source, scale, legend, title and north point, using spatial technologies as appropriate (ACHGS036)

Interpreting, analysing and concluding

1. Interpret geographical data and other information, using digital and spatial technologies as appropriate, and identify spatial distributions, patterns and trends, and infer relationships to draw conclusions (ACHGS037)

Communicating

1. Present findings and ideas in a range of communication forms, for example, written, oral, graphic, tabular, visual and maps; using geographical terminology and digital technologies as appropriate (ACHGS038)

Reflecting and responding

1. Reflect on their learning to propose individual and collective action in response to a contemporary geographical challenge and describe the expected effects of their proposal on different groups of people (ACHGS039)
