Rio Harvey's insight:

This page shows Australia's landscape and landforms. Using this page I want you to  understand the following questions:

1. What are Australia's World Heritage-listed sites and why are they Heritage listed?

 

2. How do people effect Australia's landscape and is there any chance we, as a population could destroy parts of our landscape through our everyday activities?

Best to show the students the types of amazing landscapes first before delving deeping. These could spark interest for a research project and presentation to the class from the students. They coud pick one of interest to them.
