Welcome to the 8Z Geography WikiaEdit

This is the wiki made by all the students of 8Z

Describe your topicEdit

Welcome to the revision Wiki for year 8Z Geography!


This page will be used for revision later in the year and will have 22 entries! Each entry will be provided by a particular student from this class, and will require certain criteria before it is put up on this page.

By the end of semester 2, this page will have a large number of topics covered, and will be updated throughout the year.

When you have been given your topic by Mr. Burke, then you can work on it for a certain amount of time, and email him what you've collected. This will be beneficial for the rest of the class when the study for the exam.

When you email Mr. Burke, email him:

- The topic you were given

- 2 to 3 paragraphs about the topic or 7 - 10 sentences (or more if it's required).

- Any Diagrams you've drawn, or any images you think demonstrate the idea well

You can add more to this throughout the year if you wish, or come across something you think adds to your idea
