The content of the geography curriculum has been delineated at four levels: infant classes, first and second classes, third and fourth classes, and fifth and sixth classes. At each level content has been divided into two distinct sections:
- a skills and concepts section which delineates:
A sense of place and space
Maps, globes and other graphical skills
Geographical investigation skills
- a number of strands which outline the subject matter which may be included in the geography programme:
Environmental awareness and care.
Each strand includes several strand units which will form the basic sections of the content covered.
