Student Instructions

Geography: Create a mini-atlas

Students need to create and publish a mini-atlas that showcases geographical characteristics of Australia and provides profiles of three populated Australian places. Your mini-atlas needs to include the following: - Australia’s position on a world map. - Maps that locate and describe features of Australia, constructed according to cartographic conventions (BOLTS). - Annotated photographs, videos or slideshows to describe significant landforms, indigenous vegetation and animals, and major cultural sites in Australia. - A profile page of each of the three Australian places investigated which compiles and explains the processed data and information. By the end of the term, we will be undertaking a virtual tour with each student acting as ‘tour guide’ for the places you investigated.
