Geography CAPS Compliant Student Textbook/ Workbook Grade 10 - 12

Our aim is to write workbooks for Geography that provide added value. We have designed an interactive learning experience that will revolutionise your teaching and learning in your classrooms. Your students will be eager to learn when they visualise the concepts you are teaching by using our PowerPoint flash files which include videos and animations for every lesson. These are easily projected onto a screen.

The Student Textbook / Workbook

The student textbook/workbooks have been refined with the goal of focusing students’ efforts and improving their understanding of Geographical concepts.

Written by experienced teachers, the student guide is a comprehensive CAPS curriculum textbook and helps students identify the important points from the text, and then provides them with review exercises, study questions, self-check exercises and vocabulary review.

Please Note: Grade 12 is still in development
