Grade 3 - Grade 4 | Geography | Make

In small groups, create your own version of the plane tour by creating a scenario where a person living in the outback is injured and must call the Royal Flying Doctors for assistance.

Step 1: Use Google Maps to find a location in outback Australia where residents would struggle to get to a local doctor or hospital. Do some extra online research to find additional information.

Then draw a map of the location that includes a key and the following information:


1. At least two nearby towns

2. Any water sources

3. Average temperature and any unusual weather conditions

4. Orientation

5. Native animals and plants.
