This is the first book for pupils in Senior classes and the language and content are graded accordingly. Through the selection of appropriate content, the key areas of human environments, natural environment and environmental awareness and care are suitably addressed. The children are enabled to use maps and other resources to help them develop a broad range of graphical skills. They are also introduced to the physical features of Ireland and an ordnance survey map of the Sligo region, while also studying our nearest neighbour, Great Britain, and finally expanding to the European Community. The book ends with six interesting class quizzes as well as three blank maps which require filling in on the part of the pupils which aids the assessment process for the teachers.
