Factors that shape places
A Stage 3, four-week learning sequence, where students explore how the impact of bushfires on people and places be reduced.
The geographical inquiry process will investigate a contemporary Australian bushfire event. Through investigation of the case study, students will examine the location and extent of the bushfire, the impact on vegetation, animals and people and the role of government agencies in bushfire management. Shaped as a second inquiry, students will create a bushfire survival plan for an imaginary visit to a bushfire-prone area.
