This resource has been developed with specific reference to two geography content descriptions for years 4 and 5 students in the Australian Curriculum: Humanities and Social Sciences:

  • The use and management of natural resources and waste, and the different views on how to do this sustainably (ACHASSK090)
  • Interpret data and information displayed in a range of formats to identify, describe and compare distributions, patterns and trends, and to infer relationships (ACHASSI100)

It also supports a further four content descriptions for years 4, 5 and 6 students in the Australian Curriculum: Science:

  • Living things depend on each other and the environment to survive (ACSSU073)
  • Earth’s surface changes over time as a result of natural processes and human activity (ACSSU075)
  • Construct and use a range of representations, including tables and graphs, to represent and describe observations, patterns or relationships in data using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS090)
  • Sudden geological changes and extreme weather events can affect Earth’s surface (ACSSU096)

The resource also has relevance to the general capabilities of literacy, critical and creative thinking, intercultural understanding, and personal and social capability.
