Australian Curriculum Geography: People Live in Places
People live in places focuses on developing students’ understanding of place. Students explore the place they live in and belong to, and learn to observe and describe its features. Learning about their own place and building a connection with it contributes to their sense of identity and belonging and an understanding of why and how they should look after places. They start to explore their feelings about places by talking about their own special places, and what makes them special. The idea of location (a part of the concept of space) is introduced through drawing story-maps and creating models to show where places and features are located, and by learning about the globe as a representation of the Earth on which places can be located. The emphasis in Foundation is on the places in which students live, but they also start to investigate other places of similar size that are familiar to them or that they are curious about.

Australian Curriculum Geography
Australian Curriculum Geography is a seven-book series linked to the requirements of the Australian National Curriculum for each stage of primary school from Foundation to Year 6. The aim of the series is to use the Geographical Knowledge and Understanding strand of the Australian Curriculum as a vehicle for practising the skills laid down by the Geographical and Inquiry Skills strand to answer the key inquiry questions.
Each book is organised into sections dependent on the number of content descriptions in the Geographical Knowledge and Understanding strand for that year. Within each section is a number of 4-page units which explore different aspects of the content description linked to the key inquiry questions. The activities in each unit give students the opportunity to practise geographical skills while addressing concepts which aid geographical understanding.
