Australian Curriculum Geography – Similar and different places – Year 3 digital unit

This is a 26-page digital unit from the Australian Curriculum Geography series that covers:

  • The similarities and differences between places in terms of their type of settlement, demographic characteristics and the lives of the people who live there (ACHGK019) 
  • Places vary in the types of settlements. They may be large or small, rural or urban. They are one characteristic (feature) of a place. Some places may have similar and different settlements.
  • A variety of types of people inhabit one place. The people in one place are different and similar to people in another place. A census is used by the government to find out about people in a place.
  • People in places may carry out similar or different work to people in other places of Australia or places in other countries.
  • The daily lives of people in different countries may be similar or different.
