This unit is based on the Year 1 Australian Curriculum HASS Inquiry Skills, Knowledge and Understandings. Students explore the different features of places within the school environment. Students investigate what are, and how to care for, natural, managed and constructed features of the school and sort these into their categories. Students create a pictorial map of the school and use directional language to direct a peer around the school. Students look at the features of the school playground, and use this information to plan and design a new playground for the school.
