This unit includes everything you need to teach a 'Connecting To Places' unit for Year Two HASS for the entire term! Paired with my upcoming 'Our Wonderful World' unit, all of your Geography content is covered. This particular unit explores how we are connected to particular places for different reasons. Students investigate aspects of places, including their features, name and significance. They explore how their connections to places can be influenced by various factors and begin to understand their place in the world.
