L1GEO

Geography Level 1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Peterson

Geography is the study of how people interact with their environment. It seeks to interpret the world and how it changes over time – past, present, and future.

There are a number of different topics covered throughout the year both internally and externally.

The topics are as follows:

  • the extreme natural events of Tsunamis;
  • Sustainability focuses on Rio De Janeiro;
  • Geographic research is centred on the Volcanic Landscape of Auckland;
  • the contemporary issue of social networking is investigated.

Students will also learn to think spatially using maps, visual images and new technologies to obtain, present, and analyse information.



Recommended Prior Learning

Entry to this course is open, however, an interest in natural and cultural geography would be beneficial.
