Geography knowledge - Liveability

About this lesson

This Year 7 topic (aligned to the Victorian Curriculum Content Standard VCGGK111) focuses on improving liveability in sustainable ways. The hook slide at the start introduces the example of Seoul, South Korea, which has improved livability since 2010 for its 70 million residents.  

Examples of livability using a skatepark, public transport and waste management unpack the concept before students are asked to assess liveability initiatives and interpret livability data in the accompanying question set and skills activity.

Time: 40-80 mins (depending on using the questions and activity in class or as homework)
Things to look for: learning intentions and success criteria, use of visuals, key terms, embedded activities and end of lesson review.

About this lesson

Students explore the hierarchy within ancient Chinese society, look at different social classes and the role of key emperors in shaping the society.

Students then apply the skill of identifying perspectives from the past by writing a diary entry from the perspective of someone in ancient China.

Geography skills - Geospatial technology

About this lesson

This Year 7 topic (aligned to the Victorian Curriculum Content Standard VCGGC104) introduces students to geospatial technologies. Students are first encouraged to think about the similarities between an iPhone and a pigeon- both of which are able to navigate using spatial information. Students then look at 5 common types of spatial technologies, and are introduced to a simple framework to help them make sense of spatial imagery. 

To apply the skill of interpreting information from spatial imagery, students compare two images related to deforestation, and use the framework introduced during the lesson as scaffold to respond.

About this lesson

Students review examples of historically significant events and people, and are introduced to a skills framework to assess whether an event or person is historically significant.  

To apply the skill of assessing cultural significance, students look at the invention of the iPhone and use the skills framework introduced in the lesson to assess its historical significance.

Edrolo is a complete package for both teacher-led and self-directed learning. It saves an immense amount of teacher's time, planning and looking for resources.

Matt, Year 7 Coordinator
Mueller College

We are so impressed with the Year 7 Edrolo resources. One of the things we love most is that students can review and revise content at their own pace, and as teachers we can easily track student progress and see who needs extra help through the online platform.
