The purpose of this study is to develop in students an ability to see meaning in the arrangement of natural and human phenomena in space; to see and understand the interrelationships between people, places and environments; and to use geographic skills and apply spatial perspectives to describe and interpret patterns on the surface of the Earth and the processes that created them.
Unit 1: Natural Environments
This unit investigates the geographic characteristics of natural environments and landforms and the processes that shape the earth's surface. Coastal, glacial and temperate rainforest environments are studied. This unit includes a fieldtrip to Toolangi State Forest.
Unit 2: Human Environments
This unit investigates the characteristics of human environments and changes in them. It considers the dynamic nature of rural and urban environments and the factors contributing to change.
Unit 3: Regional Resources
This unit investigates the characteristics of resources and the concept of region. A resource is anything which occurs naturally or is created by humans provided that people use it to satisfy a need or want.
Unit 4: Global Perspectives
Global phenomena are major natural or human events, processes or activities. Such phenomena are distributed globally and possess the capacity to affect the globe or significant parts of the globe and require more than a local or national response.
