Changing Places: Vocabulary Lists
Year 9 Geography
Boost your students’ vocabulary throughout the Changing Places unit with these differentiated vocabulary lists! Give your Year 9 students confidence and let them learn their own way. Trust them and challenge them.
The word lists included in this resource are provided over 4 differentiated reading levels. Each level has been linked to the Australian and New South Wales Literacy Progressions. I’ve taken all the guesswork out of differentiating and leveling passages for you!
This resource complements the Changing Places Unit of Work Bundle. This unit of work for Year 9 is complete with a 10-week teaching program, assessment schedule, and marking rubrics. The bundle also includes engaging learning activities and a PowerPoint presentation.
These vocabulary-specific words are linked directly to the Geographical Knowledge and Understanding strand of the Australian Curriculum.
