Level 2 Geography - Amazon Basin - Semester B


What is Geography about?

Geography is the study of the environment as the home of people. It seeks to interpret the world and how it changes over time – past, present, and future.

It explores the relationships and connections between people and both natural and cultural environments.

Geography investigates the ways in which features are arranged on the earth’s surface. It describes and explains the patterns and processes that create them.

Students learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS), to obtain, present and analyse information.

Why should students take this course?


The students who should take this course should be curious about the world around them. Students will learn about regeneration and the creation of the Amazon Basin along with research skills a geographer uses in the field.
