Ontario Inquiry-pac Grade 7 Geography unit
Physical Patterns in a Changing World

Are you searching for a way to engage students in realistic yet hopeful discussions about our physical environments and the changing patterns created by human impact?

This package of dynamic online resources provides everything you need to implement the new Ontario grade 7 geography strand A curriculum through exciting, ongoing inquiry with your students. Including 17 lessons and all required teacher and student materials, this unit guides students in considering the overarching question: How should we respond to our changing Earth? The ongoing critical challenge for students throughout the unit is to create a compelling multi-media “message to the world” to communicate powerful ideas and inspiring examples that will help us respond sustainably to our changing Earth. The broad understandings nurtured include:

  • Humans have always lived in response to Earth’s physical patterns.
  • The physical world is changing because of natural and human activity.
  • The global community can learn to respond sustainably to the opportunities and challenges presented by our changing environment.

TC2 worked for over a year to develop a cascading curriculum plan that incorporates the curriculum expectations and highlights current and relevant geographic issues and themes.  In addition, TC2 is committed to incorporating more First Nations, Metis and Inuit perspectives into the unit.
