the history of a significant person, building, site or part of the natural environment in the local community and what it reveals about the pastand that they understand
the importance today of an historical site of cultural or spiritual significance; for example, a community building, a landmark, a war memorial.Next term, with Anzac Day occuring in the first few weeks, it seems timely to study our local war memorial as we develop some of the history skills that my students will need later in the term when we study our local Show.
I am posting my unit plan here in case it is of use to others. I am so far enjoying implementing the new Australian Curriculum, but it would be great to see what other people are doing so I can know if I am interpreting it as the writers intended. I figure if I post my plans, perhaps others might either do the same, or at least give me some feedback about what they are doing with the new History curriculum.
There are two files to download because I made it a PDF and one of the pages is landscape so it is a separate file.
