Australian Curriculum Geography: A diverse and connected world
A diverse and connected world takes a global view of geography and focuses particularly on the concepts of place and interconnections. Students learn about the diversity of peoples and cultures around the world, the indigenous peoples of other countries, the diversity of countries across the world and within the Asia region. They reflect on cultural differences and similarities, and on the meaning and significance of intercultural understanding. The focus of study becomes global, as students examine Australia’s connections with other countries and events in places throughout the world, and think about their own and other people’s knowledge of other countries and places. Students’ mental maps of the world and their understanding of place are further developed through learning the locations of the major countries in the Asia region, and investigating the geographical diversity and variety of connections between people and places.

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.
