1hrs

Transport and liveability

In this lesson, students will be immersed in, and connect with 2040, focusing on the topics of transport and liveability. Students begin by participating in a warm-up activity around their personal transport use before investigating liveability and the factors of liveability that are important to them. They then participate in a THINK PAIR SHARE routine and a role-play activity to explore transport in terms of liveability and our environment. Students then think about how future transport could be designed to improve liveability.

Energy And Liveability – Geography – Years 7&8

1hrs

Energy and liveability

In this lesson, students will be immersed in, and connect with 2040, focusing on the topics of energy and liveability. Students will explore their understanding of liveability and think about how energy and our environment relate to liveability. They will work collaboratively to conduct research into the impacts of fossil fuels on our environment before participating in a guided discussion around a sustainable energy case study. Students will then work in groups to compare electricity produced from coal and solar, and produce a report that summarises the results of their assessment.

Food Security And Urban Farming – Geography – Years 9&10

1hr 40mins

Food security and urban farming

In this lesson, students will be immersed in, and connect with 2040, focusing on the topics of food security and urban agriculture. Students begin by exploring the concept of food security by participating in a classroom demonstration and a guided discussion around a food security clip. They then explore the practice of urban farming as one solution to current and future food security challenges. Students then work collaboratively to identify a potential site for an urban farm in their area, creating a proposal for this project to share with the class.
