Geography

Nau mai haere mai

The geography area of Social Sciences Online provides curriculum and assessment information, resources, and useful links to support the teaching and learning of geography in years 11–13.

Geography gives students a multidisciplinary or holistic view of the world, combining knowledge, skills, and understandings of the physical and social sciences. It fosters a curiosity about place and space, and provokes questions about natural and cultural environments and their interconnectedness.

Geography provides opportunities through fieldwork for first-hand investigations of places, environments, and human activities. It helps students make sense of complex issues such as climate change, ageing populations, urban growth, land conflicts, globalisation, and sustainability.
