Australian Geographic presents a new curriculum based geography series for grade 4-6, following in the successful steps of the AG Science and History series.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) people are the first inhabitants of Australia – there were once more than 500 Indigenous ‘nations’ across the continent. ATSI people have a strong understanding of the land and its animal inhabitants, which they used to decide where to live. In this book, students will investigate how Indigenous knowledge and practices are linked to sustainable use of resources and how their ways of living were influenced by their environment.
Others in the series include: The Importance of the Environment, Floods and Bushfires, Around the Globe, Resources and Waste, Places and Spaces, Indigenous Cultures, Human Influence and Global Connections.
Hardcover. 210 x 272mm. 32 pages.
