Exploration and Discovery is the third topic in Year 7 Humanities. It examines the idea of exploration and the forces that drive individuals to explore the world, despite the risks. It also investigates the effects that exploration and discovery has on the peoples and environments that explorers discover. The unit also analyses scientific discovery and exploration, considering the technologies that have enabled people to discover more about the world. Students will take part in their own voyage of discovery by visiting Tai O on Lantau Island before integrating what they have learnt into an end of unit investigation of an explorer of their choice.
