Year 6A Eighth Continent of the World!
This semester in SOSE the year 6A students were required to follow the four steps of the Technology Key Learning Area to design a new eighth continent of the world. The students engaged in learning the skills of reading and drawing maps. The students had to think about exactly where they were going to position their continent in the world as this would directly affect many aspects about living on their continent. An example of this is the climate and weather that may be experienced in that area. More importantly the students had to skilfully draw a number of features on their map. These included latitude and longitude, grid references, a scale, a compass, a key, countries, capital cities, rivers, oceans and seas. They had a great deal of fun planning and drawing their continent. Here are some great new continents.
