Year 7 Geography - Water in the World
Year 7 Geography students are involved in a study of “Water in the World”. Students have been tasked to create, in small groups, a three dimensional model of how water moves through human and natural environments, from catchment through to treatment. On Thursday July 28th the Year 7 cohort participated in an excursion that aimed to develop student understanding of the movement of water, and thus transfer this new knowledge onto the physical models. Each small group sent members to one of three Barwon Water managed sites; Wurdee Boluc Reseviour, Montpellier Basins, and Black Rock Treatment Plant. At each site students took notes and photographs, gathered water samples, and completed field sketches before returning to school to share their new understanding amongst their small group, and begin planning the three dimensional model. The students now have a wonderful opportunity to link this understanding and display the movement of water in a hands on and practical way.
