Welcome to Hawthorn Class...

Terrible weather is amongst us – right?

Well, this term we will be learning all about the different effects weather and climate can have in different areas of the world, focusing on areas around the Equator and that of each pole. We will be walking in the footsteps of Earnest Shackleton and following his journey as an Antarctic explorer and trying to understand the impact of human and physical geography has on such an adventurer. We will be making comparisons between the different biomes and addressing the implications those differences have on human development with a key focus on the Amazon and the Antarctic.

What may seem like terrible weather to us may be perfect conditions for these biomes to thrive.
