Australian Landscapes and
Landforms
Focus: To create an annotated visual display on significant Australian landforms
Success:
I can:
 Copy a map precisely
 Locate key landforms in the Atlas (or on another source) and plot
appropriately on a map
Equipment:
 Map of Australia
 Coloured pencils
 Atlas or
 Laptop or electronic device connected to network
Process
1. Look at your map and note the different States of Australia.
2. In your Atlas, or on Google - locate a physical map that has the deserts and
mountains noted.
3. Rather than write all names of places, you may prefer to do a legend/key to
pinpoint landforms. Either is fine.
4. Select at least 3 landforms from each category (you will have 18 landforms in
total to plot on your map).

You will be assessed on:
 Neatness and precision
 Presentation of your work
Review (write this on the back of the map or underneath it):
What are three landforms you did not know about?
What are 2 that you would like to visit and explain why?
What is one of these landforms that you have already visited?
