Circling the World
National Parks, Years 4-6 (Revised)
This amazing resource will lead young learners around the world on a whirlwind tour. You and your students will visit 36 incredible national parks from across the globe, encountering everything from rivers and rainforests to deserts and dinosaur bones.
Each park description is followed by an activity which students can complete to learn more about the geography of that park. Many of the activities involve a different learning area or skill set, supporting the integration of geography education with learning in other subjects. At the bottom of each activity page are websites that also relate to the activity, which will help the teacher to extend the activity and relate it to sites closer to home.
A perfect complement for your Australian Curriculum-aligned study of world geography, this exciting book is designed to encourage students to use their natural curiosity to explore culture, research different ways of life and create projects based on what they learn. Using the material from this book, your Years 4–6 students will learn to make connections to the real world, visit intriguing places and discover history, art, architecture, maths, language and science as well as geography.
Circling the World: National Parks includes information sheets, websites and activities that offer investigative learning ideas, higher-level thinking questions, engaging art projects and interesting research opportunities to excite your students.
