Geography - A diverse & connected world

Geography - A Diverse and Connected World - Oral mapping

Experience a day of connecting to Country through oral mapping, a unique geographical skill that has been handed down from generation to generation in many Indigenous cultures, including the local Dharug culture.

As our world becomes more globalised, students need to understand connections both to the local and global environments.  This excursion can stand alone to connect students to Country or be embedded in a complete 10 Week Diverse & Connected World Unit of Work comparing and contrasting local Aboriginal ways of being, knowing and doing with the ways of other Indigenous cultures in the Asia Pacific rim.

This excursion is based around the Inquiry Question:

How do Indigenous Australian connections to place influence and affect perceptions of Country?

This program includes an Aboriginal Educator.

Maximum student numbers are 6 classes or 180 students.
