Explore the world's climatic zones and apply this knowledge to map an island using cartographic conventions. The unit focuses on survival skills, teaching students how to find food and water, and construct shelters. These activities emphasize the importance of adapting to different environments and understanding the balance between necessity and comfort.

The curriculum also enhances students' narrative and analytical skills. They will write recounts of their experiences, honing their storytelling abilities. Additionally, lessons on different types of resources - natural, human, and capital - help students understand how these satisfy human needs and wants, blending practical geography with resource management and creative writing.
