Four knowledge areas are used as organizers of the Natural Sciences content framework. Each knowledge area is developed across all three years of the Intermediate Phase:
matter and materials (strand 1)
life and living (strand 2)
energy and change (strand 3)
Earth and beyond (strand 4).
TECHNOLOGY Two knowledge strands are used as organizers of the Technology content framework. Each knowledge strand is developed across all three years of the Intermediate Phase. The knowledge strands are placed in ascending order, size and complexity as a framing device. These knowledge strands are:
structures (strand 1)
systems and control (strand 2)
spatial patterns and trends: the location of people and places in the world,
similarity and difference: how environments and lifestyles compare and the reasons for similarities and differences,
movement: how and why people, goods, water, land and air move and change,
Planet Earth: land, water and air,
human settlement: where people live and why,
human activities: what people do, how the environment affects them and how they affect the environment,
interdependence: the links between climate, vegetation, wildlife, resource distribution, and human settlement and activity,
change: the changing nature of people and places.
A. Physical Geography
Physical geographers study natural systems such as climate and weather patterns, landforms and soils, vegetation and the distribution of water resources. They also study events such as earthquakes, hurricanes and floods.
B. Human Geography
Human geographers study patterns of human development and behaviour. These include settlement, trade and population trends. They also study the link between human activity and natural systems. Geographers are particularly interested in the impact of human activity on the environment and on planet Earth in general. Geographers actively investigate issues such as sustainable development, global warming, pollution, deforestation and access to food and water.
