Students have a location (in Australia?) described to them, based on a geographically significant, (so this means reasonably 'locate-able' ) feature, but without being told precisely where it is. Working in groups, students discover the location of this feature and plan an itinerary for a journey to the selected location. By utilising Internet resources, and emailing when required to determine prices etc, students develop a list of requirements. This forms one part of the exercise. When students have determined where the location is, how they might travel there, what it would cost and what they would need to complete the trip, students source material relevant to the location and develop a postcard to send to other groups.
To familiarise students with search mechanisms, processes of emailing for information, and using electronic resources to determine requirements and planning to satisfy these requirements.
Use of graphic and word programs
