This is a unit for Year 5 (Key Stage 2 – ages 9-10) adapted from existing mountain planning to bring in more direct teaching of geographical skills and to enhance the children’s awareness of the global dimension. The unit focuses on mapping, investigating the locality, asking and answering geographical questions, diversity and sustainable development.
Concepts: place, space & scale; diversity through respecting differences; developing a sense of awe; environmental impact on culture and society; sustainable development through future planning and conflict resolution.
This unit forms part of the Geography Goes Global WordPress website, a joint project between the Geographical Association, DECSY and South Yorkshire teachers.
