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.
