Geographical toolkit K–6

A supplementary toolkit that explores the interconnections between geographical concepts, geographical inquiry skills and geographical tools.

Geographical tools are used by geographers during an inquiry to acquire, process and communicate geographical information (Geography syllabus K-10, NESA, 2015).

The geography K-10 syllabus requires all students to use geographical tools integrated throughout the geographical inquiry process. The geographical tools continuum provides examples of tools students may use in each stage of learning. This booklet provides examples of each of the geographical tools.
