Year 4 2018

Welcome to the Year 4 Team

In Term 4 we will be exploring systems and communities as the focus of our conceptual inquiries into our unit -

" “Maps are visual information systems which help us explore the world around us” "

Students will inquire into the questions...

Why do people need maps?

What are the components of an effective map?

How do maps use geographic information systems? (GIS)

How maps were used in the past and present by different communities / individuals around the world?

How and why did different communities disperse and settle in new geographic locations globally?
