This digital Geography text book is designed for Year 7 students in the Middle School, with the focus on the importance of where people live (PLACE) and factors that contribute to well-being and standards of living (LIVEABILITY). It complies with the requirements of the new National Curriculum emphasizing the two main strands (Knowledge and Understanding; Inquiry and Skills) and addressing the cross curriculum priorities.
The book offers students and teachers a range of interesting geographical topics whilst using 21st Century learning experiences. The activities in the book encourage inquiry learning and promote the benefits of team and collaborative investigation. There are several fieldwork options which allow students to examine and measure the value of some of the attributes of liveability. There is also an interactive review quiz at the end of the chapter.
