Primary Geography enables teachers to bring the wider world into the classroom by studying local, national and global issues through a range of engaging learning activities. Through an exploration of the different topics in the book, pupils acquire the skills to carry out geographical enquiry through investigation, analysis and practical work.
Pupils explore the rich diversity of human and natural environments and develop and deepen their knowledge and understanding of the geographical processes that shape the world around them.
5th Class pupils will explore:
At the end of each section an assessment page is provided. The assessments comprise of tasks that require application of knowledge and understanding of the section. Answers to the assessments are provided at the back of the book.
I love that the books are black and white and fully photocopiable by the purchaser. This means you can easily make copies of the pages you need to supplement your lessons. There is a huge amount of integration with literacy – offering interesting, challenging reading material based on key geographical concepts and covering different areas around the world. There are great pages at the beginning of the books with maps/blank templates – perfect for teaching about different areas and finding their locations. Overall I think the books are really useful for teachers covering a huge range of topics each of which is introduced with a text/ representation followed by a variety of activities that the children will enjoy. There is also an assessment section at the end of each unit.irishprimaryteacher.ie
