Year 7 HSIE Board Game Presentations

As part of their Geography studies, Year 7 students at Coonabarabran High School have been studying Landscapes and Landforms. As part of their learning, students have been working in class to create board games about World Heritage Listed sites including places as diverse as Fraser Island, the Great Barrier Reef, the Blue Mountains, the Great Smoky Mountains, and Wadi El Hitan. In making their board games students needed to research why these locations were important, what threats were facing their site, and how these threats were being managed. Upon completion of their board games, students then enjoyed time to play each other’s games and gaining useful knowledge about their world.

Well Done Year 7!

More details are available in the note below. We welcome feedback on this plan to be submitted via email to or via a box at the school office window, by Wednesday July 1.
