Worksheet, pencils/pens, paper
Students have undertaken research in and exploration of Aboriginal people before British colonisation, which will work towards answering questions, such as: ‘How did British colonisation affect the lives of Aboriginal and other peoples and what were the consequences for the continent?’ They have jointly and independently constructed explanations. At this stage in the teaching and learning cycle, they have investigated key historical events and sites, and explored the impact of colonisation on Indigenous Australians.
