Abstract

Year 5 and 6 students investigate significant people and events that have shaped Australia's identity, beginning with Australia's Indigenous history, moving through white settlement and Federation, to the present. Students create a timeline of Australia's history and then are assigned periods to research and present to their peers. They develop their reading and research skills, culminating in the creation of a diorama to represent people and/or events in Australia's history.
