To make Beth’s more for a Grade 4 level she added some grid references, a compass marking and a scale. She also had to orally describe how to get from the entrance to the different rides, using compass directions.

  • The ways that space within places, such as classroom or backyard, can be rearranged to suit different activities or purposes (ACHGK008)
  • Pose questions about familiar and unfamiliar places (ACHGS007)
  • Represent data and the location of places and their features by constructing tables, plans and labelled maps (ACHGS009)
  • Reflect on their learning and suggest responses to their findings (ACHGS012)

Represent the location of places and their features by constructing large-scale maps that conform to cartographic conventions including scale, legend, title and north point, and describe their location using simple grid references, compass direction and distance (ACHGS029)
