In Terms 3 and 4, to complement Stage 3 students’ class work in the areas of “Gold!” (Human society & its environment) and financial literacy (Priority Schools Program), the weekly library lessons will be providing field knowledge opportunities and Guided Inquiry research activities for the subsequent HSIE unit on Australian Federation.
By way of orientation, I have found these introductory Youtube clips:
A continent for a nation – Australian Federation.
Australia – A Federation in stamps.
This next clip is certainly both persuasive and irreverent in nature:
A brief history of Australia.
We are not sure what our final product might be, but these clips may well generate some discussion of the myriad of possibilities.
