L2 Geography

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss Burrows

Geography is the study of the environment as the home of people. It seeks to interpret the world and how it changes over time - past, present and future.
It explores the relationships and connections between people and both natural and cultural environments.
Geography investigates the ways in which features are arranged on the earths surface. It describes and explains the patterns ad processes that create them.
Students who take geography learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies including Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to obtain, present and analyse information.

This course aims to further develop an understanding of relationships between people and their environment, through the study of a variety of topics including:
 Large Natural Environment of the Amazon Basin
 Development inequalities
 Urbanization


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Throughout the year Geography students have the opportunity to take field trips. Level 2 students conduct geographic research, collecting data on a one day trip and explore the natural and cultural environment of the Waikato River for three days.

Students complete work in workbooks and need pens, pencils and coloured pencils
