In HASS, we have been studying Geography with a major focus on the continent of Asia. Students have compared and contrasted Asia’s physical size as well as its population and cultures. We used this as a cross curricular opportunity and integrated with Art. We attempted to replicate Chinese New Year decorations, resulting in fierce dragons and beautiful lanterns.
Students also looked at how a country’s economic characteristics affect the population including, education, life expectancy, wealth and distribution and overall well-being. Through this learning journey, students have been able to make connections to our life in Australia.
