Why do we learn about Geography?

  • To understand what affects the basic physical world in everyday life (e.g. earth-sun relationships, water cycles, wind and ocean currents)
  • To learn the location of places and the physical and cultural characteristics of those places so that we can understand and embrace difference
  • To understand people have changed over time, their ideas, places and environments
  • To understand our community, town or country and the world so that you can understand the “where” of places and events
  • To explain what arranged and sometimes changed the surface of the Earth
  • To understand how people came to be in certain locations
  • To recognise how people and places connect
  • To be able to make sensible judgements about the physical environment and our impact on it
  • To appreciate Earth as the homeland of humans and discuss about how the planet’s resources should be used
  • To understand global interdependence and to become a better global citizen.
