NEW FOR 2022

Jacaranda Geoactive

For the NSW Australian curriculum

NSW’s favourite, Jacaranda Geoactive NSW Australian curriculum series, has been refreshed to reflect our changing world with updated content, pedagogy and language, alongside new tools to spark students’ interest in Geography.



Why NSW Geography teachers trust Jacaranda:

Let Jarrod Hall, from St. Dominic’s College, share with you how the Jacaranda Geoactive NSW Australian curriculum series has supported his teaching, simplified assigning student work, saved time marking and reviewing work and has a range of engaging multimedia to support learning.

Unrivalled teacher support

A complete resource that offers support for teachers in any school context – including a new teachON section with teaching notes, samples answers, differentiated work programs, school-based fieldwork and much more.

Real, authentic and diverse voices

Get students thinking about the interconnection between people and places with new topic hooks, including stories and images in response to key inquiry questions from real people about their place in the world.

Meaningful differentiation at every stage

Cater for students of all abilities with worksheets and differentiated question sets for every lesson, and explicit support to help students decode question types and structure their responses.

  • Series Features

    The top ten features that teachers will love:

    • New fieldwork worksheets designed to give teachers single-period, mini-projects to build students skills without needing to leave school grounds

    • A comprehensive range of interactivities, concept explainer videos, weblinks and online content all embedded at the point of learning in learnON

    • Activities and teaching notes specifically addressing Life Skills outcomes
    • Question sets in print and online match one-to-one to allow different or flexible teaching approaches (with sample answers for every question)
    • Clear and well-scaffolded structure, content and language with explicit links to the NSW Australian Curriculum Geography Syllabus
