1 Geography links with other learning areas
Core units: Key understandings Years F–4 Illustration 1: Pointers to understanding

2 What are the links between geography and other learning areas in Years F–4? What things can a primary teacher introduce to students?

3 Science Foundation level
Daily and seasonal changes in our environment, including the weather, and how the seasons affect everyday life

4 Mathematics Foundation level
Sort and classify familiar objects and explain the basis for these classifications. Copy, continue and create patterns with objects and drawings Sort, describe and name familiar two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects in the environment Describe position and movement

5 History Foundation level
Students, their family and friends commemorate past events that are important to them

6 Science Year 1 Living things live in different places where their needs are met Observable changes occur in the sky and landscape

7 Mathematics Year 1 Give and follow directions to familiar locations
Represent data with objects and drawings where one object or drawing represents one data value. Describe the displays

8 History Year 1 The present, past and future are signified by terms indicating time such as: a long time ago then and now now and then old and new tomorrow … They are also represented by dates and changes that may have personal significance such as birthdays, celebrations and seasons

9 Science Year 2 Earth’s resources, including water, are used in a variety of ways Living things grow, change and have offspring similar to themselves

10 Mathematics Year 2 Interpret simple maps of familiar locations and identify the relative positions of key features Collect, check and classify data Create displays of data using lists, table and picture graphs and interpret them

11 History Year 2 The history of a significant person, building, site or part of the natural environment in the local community and what it reveals about the past The impact of changing technology on people’s lives – at home and in the ways they worked, travelled, communicated, and played in the past

12 Science Year 3 Living things can be grouped on the basis of observable features and can be distinguished from non-living things Earth’s rotation on its axis causes regular changes, including night and day

13 Mathematics Year 3 Create and interpret simple grid maps to show position and pathways Collect data, organise into categories and create displays using lists, tables, picture graphs and simple column graphs, with and without the use of digital technologies

14 History Year 3 The importance of Country/Place to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who belong to a local area. This is intended to be a local area study, focusing on one language group. If information or sources are not readily available, another representative area may be studied One important example of both change and continuity over time, in the local community, region or state/territory. For example, transport, work, education, natural and built environments, entertainment, daily life

15 English Year 3 Plan and deliver short presentations, providing some key details in logical sequence Listen to and contribute to conversations and discussions to share information and ideas and negotiate in collaborative situations

16 Science Year 4 Living things have life cycles
Living things, including plants and animals, depend on each other and the environment to survive Earth’s surface changes over time as a result of natural processes and human activity

17 Mathematics Year 4 Use simple scales, legends and directions to interpret information contained in basic maps Construct suitable data displays, with and without the use of digital technologies, from given or collected data. Include tables, column graphs and picture graphs where one picture can represent many data values

18 History Year 4 The diversity and longevity of Australia’s first peoples The ways Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples are connected to Country and Place (land, sea, waterways and skies) and the implications for their daily lives

19 English Year 4 Interpret ideas and information in spoken texts and listen for key points in order to carry out tasks and use information to share and extend ideas and information Plan, rehearse and deliver presentations incorporating learned content and taking into account the particular purposes and audiences
